Graduate Assistant

We have vacancies for several well-qualified and enthusiastic graduates to join our staff for one academic year starting in September 2019.

The roles will involve supporting children in class, in activities and games, and taking an interest in the boarding life of the School. There is an expectation that, with the support of the Head of Department of the Graduate Assistant’s specialist subject or the Head of Year 3, Graduate Assistants will, in time, deliver some lessons. An ability to assist with sport and the co-curricular life of the school is vital.

Ideal applicants will be able to provide support in English, Maths, Science and Humanities lessons and assist with the coaching of boys’ sport (rugby, cricket and football) or girls’ sport (hockey, netball, tennis and rounders). An interest in the creative and expressive arts would also be welcomed.

All roles will suit those seeking further experience of working with children prior to teacher training. Our intention is to offer full support, in departments where the need arises, for teacher training to some Graduate Assistants beginning September 2020. Freemen’s would consider NQT support thereafter for the right candidates.

Single accommodation within a shared house will be provided together with all meals taken with students during term-time. Salary, inclusive of holiday is £11,675. This salary recognises that the graduates will enjoy accommodation and living expenses which include payment of all utility bills and council tax. Personal phone calls and lines, and television subscription are not covered.

Freemen’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
