Graduate Instructors

Have you recently finished an undergraduate degree? Are you interested in exploring a career related to education or social care, but are not yet sure that teacher training is for you?

We are currently seeking to employ two graduate instructors. One post is focused on planning and delivering small group tuition for small groups of students to accelerate their progress in English and Maths and with an option to include science. The other post is focused on providing cover for lessons to ensure pupils continue making good progress in their learning on occasions when their substantive teacher is absent. Full training and support will be provided. Either role could provide an excellent launchpad into teacher training, or alternatively support you with developing the soft skills to succeed in a graduate role in a private sector company.

The successful candidates will have excellent academic foundation (strong performance at GCSE) in Maths and English and ideally science, will gain satisfaction for helping others and sharing their love of learning, and will be adept at forming positive, motivating relationships with young people. They will be open minded and keen to learn and progress.

Easthampstead Park is a vibrant school which prides itself on holding traditional values. Our school culture marries high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support.  The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community.  Teaching and learning drives everything we do.  An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.

This is a very exciting time to join us.  In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.  

“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well.  This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much-improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.”  (OFSTED, 2016)

We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful.  We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.

If you feel you have the necessary skills, mindset and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would very much like to hear from you.

Applications will be considered upon receipt, so if you wish to apply you are advised to do so at the earliest possible time.

Closing date: 9am on Tuesday 19 October.

Safeguarding

Bracknell Forest Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people and expects all employees, workers and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices share this commitment. This position requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check because it involves contact with (or access to data concerning) children/young people/adults at risk. On your application form, you will need to tell us about any spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings which may later appear on your DBS Certificate. The Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) has responsibility for working together to oversee the safety and well-being of children and young people in Bracknell Forest.

Pre–employment medical check

You may be asked about your physical ability to perform the job during interview.

You may be required to attend a medical examination.

References

On your application form you will be asked to provide the names and addresses of two people who will provide a reference. At least one should be from your current/most recent employer. If you are not currently working with children/adults at risk but have done so in the past it is important that a reference is obtained from the employer by whom you were most recently employed working with children/adults at risk. Employment references must be provided by your current or most recent line manager and will not be accepted from relatives or people writing solely in the capacity of friends. However, your referees may include someone you know with standing in the community i.e. a teacher, vicar etc. We take up references for all shortlisted candidates and wherever possible we like to apply for these prior to interview.
