graduate teaching assistants can make an immediate impact on the life chances
of our young people.
This year, we are celebrating our first ever pupil
securing a place at Cambridge. This sits alongside consistent successes in
recent years in supporting multiple pupils in securing places on competitive
courses such as medicine, dentistry and law. The number of pupils gaining
places at Russell Group universities and prestigious apprenticeship providers
also continues to grow.
However, we know that none of this success is
possible if pupils are not taught to read, write and to do maths further down
the school, and if pupils are not provided with the highly effective pastoral
support and early help that they need. This is where graduate teaching assistants
can have an immediate impact.
Our young people need your support now more than
ever, and as a Graduate Teaching Assistant you’ll be a pillar of strength to
not only the pupils, but to the school and community. You will be a role model
of what is possible. In this incredibly rewarding role you’ll be supporting
pupils, parents, and teachers to establish a learning environment in which
children are able to flourish and fulfil their potential.
