Are you interested in teaching?

Do you hold a BSc in Computer Science (minimum 2:2)?

If you answered 'yes' to both questions, this could be a great opportunity for you!

This is an unsalaried teacher training, but you might qualify for the government tax-free bursary (£26,000) or scholarship (£28,000). Both full-time and part-time applications will be considered.

Teacher Training Course (SCITT):

Aston Education works in partnership with this outstanding secondary academy and a large multi-academy trust who run their own bespoke teacher training course. It is led by their outstanding schools and accredited by Goldsmiths, University of London, who award the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

Throughout the course, you'll receive individual support and mentoring from their teachers of excellence.

About the Academy:

You will be based at this outstanding 11-18 non-selective academy near Brighton. It is a successful and dynamic school. The moment you walk through the door you can feel the buzz and energy of an inclusive school that focuses on the enrichment, enhancement and learning of all children.

About the Computing Department:

The academy's Computing department is thriving, and their results have been steadily increasing.

The Computing department aims to inspire and nurture the use of technology, in their well-resourced department, through engaging and challenging curriculum.

They cover a broad range of ICT and Computing topics at Key Stage 3, preparing students to take GCSE Computing and/or Information Technologies at Key Stage 4. Students can then opt to study Computing at A-Level, or Cambridge Technical in IT at Key Stage 5.

The successful Trainee Teacher will:

Hold a minimum of a 2:2 degree in Computer Science
Have a GCSE Grade C (4) in Mathematics and English Language
Be passionate about Computer Science teaching and have the desire to make a positive difference to the lives of the young people
Have the presence and character to relate to the students at this school
In time, be able to design and deliver engaging and purposeful Computer Science lessons to whole classes
This role is easily accessible from the East Sussex and West Sussex areas such as Brighton, Hove, Worthing, Chichester, Horsham and Crawley.

At this academy and multi-academy trust, you could have access to continuous professional development beyond your initial teacher training. NQTs who join will be paid more than at a maintained school and have access to a range of lifestyle and retail perks.
