JOB DESCRIPTION

Let me tell you a story about 23 year old Abbie from South London. She achieved excellent A Level results before moving onto one of the best universities in the country.

Abbie graduated last year and contacted Horizon Teachers to apply for a full-time Graduate Teaching Assistant position in a Secondary School to start in September.

Abbie was enthusiastic and passionate about education when she met us. She wanted to apply for a PGCE straight after university but wanted to gain in school experience before committing. We also advised Abbie that this was the best option at her stage of her career as it would also support her application.

We had been contacted by Abbie in June, and within two weeks she had been offered Graduate Teaching Assistant roles in two local Secondary schools. She had attended interviews at these schools that had been arranged by Horizon Teachers. The same enthusiasm and passion that was clear when she met us also shone in her interviews.

After considering both options, Abbie chose an Outstanding school within 30 minutes commute of her home that had offered her a Graduate Teaching Assistant position within the Science Department for the entire academic year. Science was what she had studied at university and what she was passionate about. It’s safe to say Abbie was over the moon.

After 6 months in the position, Abbie was offered to complete teacher training by the school. Abbie had expressed an interest in teaching and the school were very keen for her to stay on. Abbie had also received several offers to complete her PGCE at university. Her applications had been support by her experience as a Graduate Teaching Assistant.

In the end, Abbie decided to complete a PGCE at university as this was the route into teaching she had always wanted go down.  She is now training to become a Science Teacher.

We have kept in contact with Abbie and she is so thankful for our help in finding her a Graduate Teaching Assistant job. She says that the experience has proved valuable in her journey to becoming a teacher. Once Abbie has completed her PGCE we will also be helping her find her first teaching job.
