My client school, based in East Birmingham, close to the border of Solihull, is keen to a science graduates to work on a full time permanent basis for the academic year, starting in September, as a Teaching Assistant. The recruited graduates will work solely within the school’s science faculty but could be spread between Physics, Chemistry and Biology – dependent on the degree and A Levels of the recruited graduate.

The school is a newly built secondary home to over 1600 pupils with close to 250 of those in their sixth form. They are very focused on providing each and every pupil with the highest standard of education, regardless of their academic starting point when joining the school.

As an Academic Mentor/Teaching Assistant your role is to provide support to the school’s pupils in science. The majority of the work will focus on those pupils in Key Stage 4, preparing for their GCSEs. On occasion this will be with the class as a whole but there will be some demand to take small groups aside, or out of the class, to provide more specialist help, be it to low achieving or gifted and talented pupils. As an Academic Mentor, you will be given the chance to learn what it’s like to be a teacher and how best you can support pupils in science.

Every day as an Academic Mentor/Teaching Assistant is different, bringing new challenges and often new situations you won’t have dealt with before. To be successful in this role you need to be highly organised, knowledgeable in your science subjects and most importantly flexible. Having patience and the ability to explain the same principle in different ways will also stand you in good stead.

If you’re motivated, hard-working and flexible with a good science degree, then please email a copy of your CV to Patrick at Edustaff today
