Harris City Academy Crystal Palace is a mixed academy for 1,300 students aged 11-18. The academy has three consecutive outstanding judgments by Ofsted, with the most recent inspection in 2014 finding the academy to be outstanding in every aspect. This thriving academy also has a large sixth form with over 300 students. It is one of the most oversubscribed comprehensive schools in the country and in the top 5% for performance. 

If you are a recent graduate who is passionate about helping children achieve their potential, our Graduate Programme is for you.

We believe the most effective way to experience all aspects of school life is to be based in a school environment, learning to teach with expert classroom practitioners. Our school-based Teaching Assistant placements cover Secondary phases (Key Stage 3-5) and can be your first step on the journey towards a job as an outstanding educator. We can offer you invaluable classroom experience to help develop your knowledge and skills ahead of initial teacher education. We expect that many of our graduate Teaching Assistants will go on to complete their Initial Teacher Education (ITE) through the Harris School Direct programme.

We want every child in London to have the best possible education, enabling them to fulfil their potential and decide their own future. We are looking for driven, dedicated people who share our belief that every child has the potential to do well. When people like this work together, anything is achievable. The people you will be working with will support and motivate you in achieving your career ambitions. Our exceptional teachers, staff and leaders come from a wide range of backgrounds, but they all share a passionate commitment to give our students an outstanding education in an inspiring and happy school environment.

If you are a recent university graduate (or will graduate in 2017) who is interested to gain initial classroom experience as a Teaching Assistant, we want to hear from you. We are looking to speak with graduates of Maths, Science, English, History, Geography and Languages.

Working as part of a highly experienced, collaborative and talented team at one of our academies, your role will be to provide support, either as 1:1 tuition, or to small groups of students with varying abilities in Maths, Science, English, History, Geography or Languages. You will be encouraging and supporting individual pupils to reach their full potential, whilst demonstrating a creative and determined attitude that will help motivate students. You will be directly supporting the students with their Mathematics, Science, English, History, Geography and Languages, as well as helping to organise the teaching and learning resources available to students and staff.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a leading academy group where we will help develop your teaching skills and offer you valuable work experience. For graduates looking to gain Qualified Teacher Status, our graduate programme is a great starting point before exploring initial teacher training where you could earn up to £30,000 for high-priority subjects. Our Harris School Direct Programme offers a PGCE, QTS and 60 Masters credits upon graduation.

Apply now to see how you could accelerate your teaching career at one of our exceptional academies.
