Teaching Personnel are working in partnership with a large RC Secondary school in the Moston area of North Manchester. The school wish to appoint a team of Science Graduate Teaching Assistants to join their Science department, on both full time and part time bases with immediate effect. With a special focus on improving children's attainment and understanding of critical aspects of Science, particularly preparing for examinations, this is an excellent opportunity to work as a teaching assistant and would be ideal preparation for a PGCE or teacher training programme.

Whether you are applying or starting teacher training this year, or considering an application for 2019 this large "inner city" school would give you great experience. Working as a teaching assistant within Science will allow you to see how lessons are planned and then delivered, understand how to differentiate according to ability and also how to manage behaviour well within the classroom.

Science Graduates of all specialisms (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) are welcome to apply for this position, previous experience within a classroom isn't essential but would be advantageous. Highlights of the Science Graduate teaching assistant role include;

  • Full time and Part time positions for Science graduates
  • Covering Science lessons with pre-set work in the absence of the class teacher
  • Working with Science teachers to develop activities and intervention schemes
  • Gain invaluable experience prior to starting PGCE/teacher training programme
  • Earn up to £300 per week

In order to improve the support available in the Science department, the school are seeking to appoint Science specialist Teaching Assistants to join the school at the earliest opportunity. All Science Graduate Teaching Assistant positions will be offered on a temporary basis, initially until the end of the academic year, with the potential to secure a fixed term position from September 2018 if desired.

**It is essential that the successful Science Graduates have some experience working with children and young people and are able to provide references during the interview process.**

With 1,300 pupils on roll, the school is larger than average and due to this, there are plans in place to expand the school grounds to incorporate open learning areas in all core subjects.

Our partner Secondary school is located in Moston and can be accessed via the M60 motorway. Neighbouring areas Oldham, Rochdale and central Manchester have accessible routes to the school. For non drivers, there are a number of bus and train routes from Manchester city centre and surrounding areas that provide a direct route to the school.
