From September 2018, this dynamic and forward-looking school requires a well-qualified and motivated Classics graduate who is considering a career in education and who is prepared to embrace all aspects of College life, including classroom teaching and academic support, sports coaching and boarding house tutoring. The Classics PG needs to be confident to teach Latin to A Level/Oxbridge standard; a similar level of Greek and/or Ancient History is desirable but not essential.
Initially for a ten-month contract, the post offers free on-site accommodation for the duration of the placement, free lunch during term-time and a salary of £18,000 per annum, pro rata.
There is also the possibility of gaining qualified teacher status through the GTP in a subsequent year (subject to interview and assuming availability of a relevant teaching post).
