My client school, located south of Birmingham city centre, has approached Edustaff for the recruitment of a number of Graduate Learning Mentors/Teaching Assistants for their core subjects. Included in this is the need for two high calibre science graduates, ideally with excellent degrees, from the country's best universities, in physics, chemistry or biology.

The school is a large modern secondary with specialisms in science and technology. It's home to pupils from a range of backgrounds and cultures so any potential graduate must be comfortable in a multi-cultural environment. The school caters for pupils between the ages of 11 and 19 with over 250 pupils in the Ofsted rated 'Good' Sixth Form College.

The school has a relatively new senior leadership team that are continually looking at ways to improve pupils experience during their time there as well as improving GCSE results. In order to help departments, improve students' attainment the school successfully utilise science graduates to great effect.

As a Science Graduate Teaching Assistant, you will work closely with the lead teacher in supporting pupils in physics, biology and chemistry. This is a varied role but on a daily basis you could find yourself working with splinter groups from the main class, supporting pupils on a one-to-one basis as well as supporting the class teacher with experiments. Each teacher utilises their Graduate Subject Mentors in different ways so candidates must be flexible, adaptable and hard working in order to get the most out of this experience.

This is an ideal opportunity for science graduates that are looking to go on to train as teachers. This classroom based experience is the perfect platform in providing candidates with many of the necessary skills that are needed for a career in teaching.

If you're a top-class science graduate and would relish the opportunity to spend a year in a school's science department as a Teaching Assistant then please email a copy of your CV to Patrick at Edustaff today
