About the School - English Graduate Teaching Assistant - Enfield, North London
Candidate will only be considered for a TA post if they have a minimum of a 2:1 at degree level and strong A-Levels. They must also be able to show a desire and passion for teaching. One area the school is keen to continue its recent improvement is in raising attainment. GCSE results were well below average prior to the school becoming an Academy in 2010 and the hard work put in by teachers and students alike is only just starting to bear fruit. The use of graduate TA's has helped to improve results by giving individual students the support and development they need so the school is keen to employ more for September and is keen to make appointments as soon as possible.
