Starting your teaching career at KSA
Are you interested in getting into teaching? KSA is the perfect place to start.
Tutor Fellow (Graduate Teaching Assistant)
Recruiting for a start date of September 2019 and other flexible dates.
The Tutor Fellow role exists as a unique springboard into teaching. It is a one year fellowship, which gives teachers a practical grounding in teaching. The role includes tutoring small groups of pupils, supporting pupils in class, leading on extra curricular activities and being a mentor and support to pupils. Tutor Fellows are exposed to exceptional teaching at the highest performing state school in the country and are developed as prospective teachers. During the year, Tutor Fellows are supported to apply to train to be a teacher at King Solomon Academy, through Ark Teacher Training. In recent years, the majority of our Tutor Fellows have gone on to train successfully as teachers at KSA. As an all-through school, we welcome applications from those interested in Primary teaching, Secondary teaching, or both. Tutor Fellows work across the two parts of the school and are trained together - the same future opportuntiies are available to both cohorts.
We are recruiting for candidates looking to start in September 2019 who are interested in training to be a teacher in September 2020, but we also welcome earlier start dates (between now and June 2019). During the 2019-20 year, we will review applications for the role of Tutor Fellow on a periodic basis. After each recruitment round, we will hold interviews at the school.
Next deadline: 21st June.
