What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking applications from graduates with a 2.2 or above in Sciences, Computing, Mathematics, or a related discipline. It is not vital that your first degree is in the subject that you intend to teach, but additional training may be needed to enhance your subject knowledge if it is not. Experience working in an educational setting with children and young people will be a benefit, but most important to us is your outlook and drive to continually improve. Teaching is a highly rewarding career choice, but it is one which requires you to hold yourself to the highest of standards, to be self-motivated and work independently and to continually reflect on your practice and how you can succeed. Successful applicants for this program will be resilient, reflective and driven to succeed in everything they do.

If you are interested in the Graduate Trainee Teacher Apprentice position, we would recommend that you contact us for an informal conversation to find out more, or to visit us at Court Fields. In order to do this, please contact Martyn Dudley, Deputy Headteacher via the school office.

What the school offers its staff

The Graduate Trainee Teacher role, in conjunction with the Graduate Teacher Programme and Buckinghamshire University, offers talented and motivated graduates the chance to study towards the full range of professional teaching qualifications while gaining significant on the job and classroom experience and earning a competitive salary which reflects your prior academic success.

Unlike traditional taught routes into teaching, you will be a fully fledged member of the school community from day one, acting as both lead teacher and tutor to students and being involved in all areas of school life.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Blackdown Education Partnership is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all who work here to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to employment checks, including an Enhanced DBS disclosure.
