An Ofsted graded ‘Good’ school in the Canterbury area is looking for a Chemistry Trainee Teacher to join their successful team and secure Qualified Teacher Status with their support.

The school offers a distinctive small environment and is justly proud of its reputation as a place where each individual is well known, listened to and encouraged to be the best they can be. They work hard to provide a safe and happy environment within which every student can grow and achieve personal, social and academic success. This is an excellent opportunity for a Chemistry (or engineering field) graduate looking to work in a developing Kent school. The school is a leader in teacher training, mean they are able to provide the necessary support above and beyond to any trainees here.

The successful Chemistry Trainee Teacher will be based in a hard-working department which welcomes innovation and trainees looking to make a difference – this is not for those who wish to do the bare minimum! The Ofsted report notes that “Teachers are passionate about their work and ambitious for their pupils’ achievement. They have very high expectations of pupils and set them stretching targets. Pupils rise to the challenge, displaying an enthusiasm for learning and a desire to do the very best they can. The vast majority of pupils work hard in lessons and are resilient when tackling new material.”

As a Chemistry Trainee Teacher working towards QTS, you will have your own timetabled classes in which you yourself will take on the responsibility of teaching and supporting your own cohort of learners in the subject of chemistry and Science. This will include teaching chemistry across various year groups and taking responsibility of preparation and planning of lessons across your 12 months on programme. If you are someone who likes a challenge and putting in the hard work with learners that have an interest in this subject, helping to encourage their skillset and abilities, then this could be the right school for you.
