N.B. NQT mentoring will be provided via Ilkley Grammar School’s NQT programme if required.

Both IGS and TSA share a vision and ethos to ensure that all MLT students are equipped with the confidence and skills to make a positive difference to their own lives and to the lives of others. The successful candidate will have high expectations and an unwavering commitment to all students, maximising their potential through outstanding learning, teaching and support.
