i-teachers provide long-term, full-time roles to high calibre graduates who need support and guidance taking their first steps onto the education career ladder. Our schools are searching for recent Physics and other science graduates, who may be considering a career in education and would like to gain paid work experience whilst exploring this option.

The role will require you to work in both small groups and on a 1:1 basis, helping these students to make the progress they need to reach their full potential in their GCSEs and A Levels.

You will play a key role in ensuring that pupils have a practical, fun and informative approach to their learning, as well as developing a love and appreciation for the sciences.

To be shortlisted for these roles, you will need to have a minimum of 2:1 degree in Physics or other related subject.

This is a really exciting opportunity to gain paid experience in a Science Department before going on to a PGCE or Schools Direct Course next year.

The school is located just east of Birmingham and is easily commutable from the surrounding areas of Birmingham and Solihull.
