Further details about the role

A teaching apprenticeship will enable you to take the next step on your journey to becoming a teacher while enjoying all the benefits of being employed by a school.

Based at Robert May’s School for four days a week with a day off-site each week to undertake training with our outstanding provider, South Farnham Education Trust (SFET), there would be an opportunity for you to visit a contrasting school over a six-week period along with a primary placement.

Through the 1-year apprenticeship, you would be paid on the Unqualified Teacher pay scale (minimum starting salary of £20,598) and all course fees would be covered by the school. Successful applicants may choose to convert their QTS into a PGCE by completing university based assignments.

You will be joining a flourishing 11-16 academy school, teaching across the age and attainment range at both Key Stage 3 and 4 in an environment where students are well behaved and keen to do well. A comprehensive induction and support package will be available.

We pride ourselves on our ethos and culture which promotes positive relationships and behaviour. In our most recent Ofsted report (Nov 2022), inspectors observed that ‘“Lessons are calm and purposeful and led by knowledgeable, passionate teachers. Pupils show dedication to learning and pay close attention to their teacher’s instruction”’.

Robert May’s School, which dates from 1694, is a high attaining and oversubscribed 11-16 Academy school with a distinctive ethos based on the charitable principles of our founder. We would welcome the opportunity for an informal discussion or visit.
