You may be asked to lead a class discussion, organise group work or supervise PE and Drama activities. You would also learn about school policies and how they are implemented including the school’s behaviour policy and have the chance to improve subject knowledge in all areas including your specialist subject in readiness for an application to train to teach.

In addition to this, we would offer you the chance to spend time in some of the other departments in the school responsible for supporting our students. Our Raising Achievement team work hard to ensure progress and development of students at all Key Stages including Sixth Form by offering them high quality academic mentoring using intervention and support programmes, one-to-one and small groups support and help with building their confidence and self-esteem. We have a specialist Autistic Spectrum Disorder Unit with specially trained teachers and Learning Support Assistants who support students with ASD enabling them to flourish in a classroom environment wherever possible, with additional support in subjects or other areas of the curriculum which they find challenging. Within the school there is a team of Learning Support Assistants who support a wide range of students with Special Educational Needs and there would be opportunities to work alongside them as well.

If you are a graduate, who enjoys teamwork, and you have plenty of energy and enthusiasm, as well as an interest in a career working with young people in education, we would be delighted to receive your application.
