English Graduate Learning Mentor – Solihull Secondary School – Starts September

My client school, located in Solihull, are currently recruiting a Graduate Teaching Assistant to work within the school’s English department. This is a full time position starting at the turn of the new academic year. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable experience in an English faculty prior to starting teacher training.

Job Role

To support learning in English, particularly at GCSE level, the school are keen to appoint a Graduate Learning Mentor with a degree in English. The role of a Graduate Learning Mentor is to support both whole classes and smaller groups (possibly ‘Gifted and Talented’ or those of lower ability) of pupils studying English and English Literature. Classes can be spread across the Key Stages and will include some work at AS and A2 level. Candidates are required to have a first class or upper second class degree in English or English Literature from a respected university.

Although not essential there will be preference given to those candidates who have previous or current experience supporting and working with young people.

The School

My client Roman Catholic School is a secondary school located in Solihull. The school is open to pupils aged 11 to 18 years. It is one of the few secondary schools in the Dudley borough to include sixth form facilities, as most of the other sixth forms closed at the turn of the 1990s following the introduction of tertiary education across the area.

Despite its being a Catholic school, many of the school’s pupils are non-Catholics and include a diverse cohort of pupils. The school performs well in the local GCSE tables and is regularly among the highest performing schools in Solihull.

About the role

The role of a Graduate Learning Mentor/Teaching Assistant is to provide additional support for pupils in English. The school are ideally looking for graduates that want to go on, at some later stage, to become fully qualified teachers. This role will give candidates the perfect platform and experience to really make the most of that future teacher training.
