English Teaching Assistant – Graduate Scheme

Have you recently completed your degree, achieving a 2:1 or above, and are considering a career as an English Teacher?

Would paid experience in a school based setting as an English Teaching Assistant, with training offered to help you work towards beginning a PGCE, benefit you?

If you are a recent graduate, considering teacher training but aren’t quite ready to commit to training, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!

A school in Greenwich, South East London, is currently looking for an enthusiastic and academically strong English graduate. Your role will be to support a group of lower ability Key Stage 3 & 4 students for the rest of the academic year. If successful in this post, you will be offered the opportunity to go into Teacher Training directly with the school.

English Teaching Assistant – Graduate Scheme 

  • Excellent opportunity for an English Graduate
  • Minimum 2:1 degree required
  • Opportunities to experience KS3, GCSE and A Level
  • Range of contexts of schools
  • Interview preparation/advice 

English Teaching Assistant – Graduate Opportunity!

This role would suit a passionate and talented graduate of English who is looking to gain paid experience in a school based setting before embarking on a PGCE or other teacher training. You will need to have obtained a minimum 2:1 degree with strong A Levels too. Experience working with children or young people is necessary although it is not essential to have worked in a UK school before.


You will have the opportunity to work with experienced professionals within the English Department, giving you a realistic picture of life as a teacher and the working environment of a modern day Secondary school. Although challenging, the role as an English Teaching Assistant will be extremely rewarding, as you will be running small group interventions with pupils who need an extra boost in their learning – previous graduates have commented on the sense of pride they feel when their students obtain a higher GCSE grade than previously predicated!
