Job description

These part time internships run until the end of March 2019 for two sessions a week, preferably two afternoons, i.e. from 12.45 – 17.00, to include 30 minutes for lunch (provided free as part of the package).

These posts are likely to appeal to post-graduate students working on a Master’s degree or a Doctorate, or to a post-doctoral student taking a sabbatical before entering the world of full-time employment. They offer the opportunity to spend time gaining some paid work-experience in an educational environment, utilising the knowledge and skills developed during university studies. They are not exclusively designed for aspiring teachers, but would clearly be of particular benefit to those considering a career in teaching. As well as the usual school subjects, we teach Classics all the way through to A Level and teach Philosophy, Psychology, Economics, Film Studies, History of Art, and PE at A Level.

The successful candidates will become members of the School’s teaching staff and will support students in a number of ways:
  • Providing Upper School Extension sessions during the second half of lunch-times and after school. These will focus on leading discussion around topics of interest, current research etc. to sixth-form students who are contemplating studying their subject / subject area at university.
  • Providing support or developing topics with individual students or groups of students in the Upper School during afternoon lesson time.
  • Providing some Upper School Enrichment sessions during the second half of lunch-times and after-school, i.e. talks which are less subject-intense and would interest not only students studying the subject itself, but a wider range of students as part of their general education.
  • Supporting the general academic work of a department or range of departments, as directed by the Head of Department and Deputy Head (Academic).
Precise responsibilities would be allocated according to the skills and abilities of the successful applicants.

What we are looking for

Applicants should be conscientious, reliable and have good inter-personal skills. You will enjoy working with young people as part of a small team, but also be able to show initiative and be self-motivating.

Accepted degree subjects

  • teacher training and education
