Would you like to have a paid opportunity to try teaching in a school setting even with minimal experience before taking a step further to potentially become a High-Level Teaching Assistant or a Qualified Teacher?

If you are can answer yes to the above questions, you may qualify for our Graduate Scheme, aiming to help graduates step a foot in the Education Sector by working as a Support staff within one of our Partner Primary Schools in or around Cardiff.

An easier way for schools to organise their staffing : Growing on a yearly basis and with constant development and studies made on how to support children in the most efficient ways possible, schools need more teachers and are looking for new ways to get graduates to teaching. It is far easier and more efficient for them to use our Graduate Scheme, with all its experience in graduate recruitment, to find suitable graduates for them.

With right support and development, schools and academies can retain those graduates and turn them into their newly qualified teachers.
