Future Teachers - Graduate Teaching Assistant
Are you a recent graduate and considering a career in teaching? Would you like paid work experience in a Huddersfield secondary school near you to help you decide if teaching is the right path for you? If yes, then our Future Teachers Programme could be the opportunity you!
What is the Future Teachers Programme?
The Future Teachers Programme is a scheme across England & Wales, designed to help address the current shortages of teachers, by attracting and supporting graduates who are considering a career in teaching, but wish to gain paid school based experience prior to starting a teacher training course.
How does it work?
You will begin your journey to teaching as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, on a full time basis, working at one of our client secondary schools across Wakefield for up to a year, starting in Easter 2021. As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, you will engage in a range of tasks to get a full feel of what it would be like to be a teacher, from supporting pupils with their studies in small groups and 1:1, to assisting class teachers across all departments including your specialism and getting involved with planning/delivering your own lessons!
Upon successful completion of your 1 years experience as a graduate teaching assistant, you will begin a school based teacher training programme from 2022 within a lead training school.
What are the benefits?
You will have the opportunity to gain a year's invaluable experience as a Graduate Teaching Assistant with one of our reputable partner secondary schools in Huddersfield and progress with the same school to do your teacher training on site! Best of all, you will earn up to £1300 a month for your first year whilst enhancing your confidence, subject knowledge and teaching ability prior to beginning your training.
