The DfE system will automatically forward applications to the programme team who will send an email acknowledging receipt. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview day at one of the partnership schools; these days will consist of a group task, a literacy and data task, a teaching episode and a formal interview. The interview panel will comprise representatives from the partnership schools. You will be notified through the DfE system of the outcome of your interview. Our intentions are to deliver our interview days face to face, within the covid-19 guidelines. We will however, provide a virtual interview should the government guidance change.
We are looking for individuals who are well qualified with relevant and up-to-date experience and who have interests and talents that would enhance children’s learning experiences. You should be enthusiastic, hardworking, resilient, happy to ‘think outside the box’ and have well developed organisation and communication skills. You will need to be able to use your initiative, manage workload and work co-operatively and effectively with others. You must be passionate about a career in teaching and enjoy working with young people, building warm relationships that promote learning.
