Are you a graduate of Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics or Computing and looking for a rewarding, exciting career that allows you to use your knowledge and passion for our world and the people in it? Have you thought about pursuing a career in teaching but not sure where to start?
We are working in close partnership with a number of secondary schools across the West Yorkshire area - including Leeds, Bradford, Calderdale and Wakefield- to source Trainee Teachers.
Please specify on your cover letter which position it is you're applying for; Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics or Computing.
The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) can provide you with the opportunity to gain Qualified Teacher Status using a practical, hands-on approach, where regardless of your previous experience you can benefit from quality training, valuable experience and support from qualified teachers throughout your year as a Trainee Teacher.
Your role as a Trainee Teacher would involve you working in a school from the beginning, aided and assessed by internal mentors and a visiting tutor and building up to teaching classes and making lesson plans. You will progress at a pace that suits you - allowing you to develop and grow as a teacher and build your confidence whilst being supported along the way.
In addition to this, a Trainee Teacher will be paid in line with an unqualified teacher and there are no course fees involved, meaning you can focus on your training and your students rather than covering your costs. You can challenge yourself whilst getting the satisfaction of seeing the results and development of your students first hand.
Entry Requirements for a Trainee Teacher:
- A commitment to make a difference.
- The ability to inspire and motivate.
- Previous experience working with young people is desirable.
- A relevant degree achieving a 2.2 degree or above.
- Grade C (or equivalent) in GCSE in Maths and English
- Right-to-work full-time in the UK without restriction; you need to have been ordinarily resident in the UK, EU or EEA these last three years (since April 2018) for eligibility
