Salary: £11,500 (including accommodation and full board during term time)

Do you have what it takes to inspire young people and have a devotion to support an excellent holistic education?

We are seeking to appoint a number of high calibre Graduate Teaching Assistants for the forthcoming academic year, starting in September 2020, on a 12 month fixed term contract for both our Senior School and Prep School, set in the beautiful Midford valley on the outskirts of Bath.

Graduate Teaching Assistants are seen as an important part of the Pastoral and Academic teams at Monkton. This is an exciting opportunity to explore and gain experience of working with young people in a supportive Christian ethos school environment and allow you to decide if teaching or pastoral care is the right career path for you. You will be expected to help with various activities during the school day, such as supporting in a classroom environment, support and supervise sport lessons and activities, to be resident on site, and to help care for the boarders after the academic day has finished and at the weekends.

We pride ourselves on our lively Christian ethos, excellent exam results and our strong pastoral care. At Monkton, we are setting standards for life; giving young people the qualities of character they need.

So, if you strive to work collaboratively and want to actively get involved in the co-curricular, pastoral life of the school, including Christian union and bible study groups, then we think you will feel right at home here.

Previous Graduate Teaching Assistants have gone on to a variety of careers including (but not limited to) SCITT and PGCE courses, counselling or church leadership - the perfect springboard for many different types of careers. Apply today to take the next step in your career.
