Graduate/Under-Graduate Scheme 

We are recruiting outstanding graduates to join our school for a 10 month residential placement (September 2018 to early July 2019). Ideally you will be expecting to graduate in Summer 2018 or be seeking a one year under-graduate placement.  

You will develop skills and experience in sports coaching and pastoral responsibilities which will be valuable experience for anyone interested in pursuing a teaching or coaching career.

In addition to being fully involved in the games, PE and extra-curricular programmes across the Foundation, you will be expected to undertake some boarding duties and will therefore need to live in accommodation on site.

In return you will receive:  

- structured support and coaching to develop your skills and knowledge  

- £9,000 for the duration of your placement 

- accommodation and meals during term time 

There may also be the opportunity to extend the placement at the end of the initial contract for another year to gain your PGCE qualification.
