Closing date 12 Dec 2016

We are currently looking for able and experienced secondary-level teachers to teach English on Saturdays. Although our students are typically in years 4, 5 or 6 of primary school when they come to us, we prefer to work with specialised teachers from secondary schools, rather than primary school teachers whose training has been more general.

The students who come to us are typically ambitious and capable, yet we find that they have rarely been challenged by the English work they are doing at primary school. Test Teach aims to provide those children with the help they need to make the transition to the more complex, adult literary understanding that will be required of them upon entering secondary school.

We do try to allow for some freedom in the way our lessons are taught, and we try to avoid overwhelming our students with the iterative, mechanical tasks that many tutoring programmes employ. We do not promote a “system” or “method”, but rather we depend on the quality of our teachers and the conviction that children can improve considerably when presented with the sort of challenges they simply aren’t given at a primary school level.

We are aware that many secondary school teachers will not have experience teaching children in the age group we cater to, but nevertheless we are hoping for candidates who can put across information to young students in a way they can understand and respond to. Our classes are kept at a maximum of 13 students, and lessons will take place in Sutton, Croydon or Kingston at a local secondary school.

Available shifts:

11:00-15:30 £215 per day with one half-hour break Sutton – Overton Grange School – SM2 6TQ

09:30-16:30 £330 per day with two half-hour breaks Croydon – Edenham High School – CR0 7NJ

09:30-16:30 £330 per day with two half-hour breaks Kingston – Grey Court School – TW10 7HN


2017 Jan 14 21 28, Feb 4 18 25, Mar 4 18 25, Apr 1 22 29, May 6 20 27, Jun 3 17 24, Jul 1 15 22

Whilst we expect teachers to attend as many dates as possible, candidates are still welcome to apply if there are some dates they can’t do.
