Job Vacancy – Apprentice Teachers (Languages & Science)

As an organisation, which exists to support education and lifelong learning, we offer our staff excellent professional development opportunities. We are an innovative school team in which work is valued and there is a caring, family ethos.

We are seeking to appoint two Apprentice Teachers to work as part of our school Trust and train to teach. Whether you are a graduate looking to secure qualified teacher status, an experienced individual already employed in a school wanting to use your degree to progress further or a career changer – we look forward to receiving your application!

The desired candidates will be hardworking, honest, dependable and self-motivated in order to uphold the ethos, aims and values of Kingsbridge EIP SCITT in collaboration with Fred Longworth High School. 

Similar to School Direct (salaried) programmes, Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeships are a new, nationally-recognised, work-based route into teaching. In addition to working towards Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on successful completion of the course, you will also complete an end point assessment (EPA) to consolidate your initial teacher training learning.

We are looking for enthusiastic and innovative individuals who wish to work with us and train to teach.

We pride ourselves on creating opportunities for individuals to train to teach within our school trust and try new things to support effective teaching and learning.

Successful candidates will need to demonstrate that they are committed to delivering the best learning opportunities for every child. Applications are welcomed from graduates or individuals due to graduate in 2021 with an interest in training to become a primary school teacher.

We are looking for applicants with:

  • The desire to work within the primary phase;  
  • Effective communication skills and a commitment to a collaborative team approach;
  • Excellent organisational skills;
  • Energy, loyalty, passion and integrity;
  • An ambition to develop leadership skills and qualities;
  • High aspirations for all children, themselves and a desire to raise standards;
  • An undergraduate degree.

Whether you are a newly-graduated individual looking for a programme to secure your QTS or an experienced school worker looking to do more with your degree, or indeed a career-changer – apply now to be considered!

For a confidential discussion about this post, or more information please contact the school on 01942 487999.

We look forward to receiving your application.
