We are not recruiting classroom support or administrative staff at the moment but we will have a vacancy for at least one Newly Qualified Teacher in September. If you are currently training as a teacher and will be fully qualified, including a good degree, a UK recognized teaching qualification and GCSE or equivalent at a minimum grade C in mathematics, English and science by September you are welcome to contact us. We are not able to consider candidates without these qualifications but we do have a training programme for suitable graduates. An application form can be found below and the closing date for this post is noon Friday 10th February.
We welcome volunteers but we obviously need to conduct thorough checks before this can happen. Volunteering to help in class can provide the essential experience you need if you are planning to work in education but would not necessarily be the route to a support staff post at Woodside. When recruiting teaching assistants we now have a policy of only employing graduates who intend to follow a career in teaching and may later wish to join our graduate training programme. Previous paid or voluntary experience working with children in a school environment is an essential criteria for these applicants.
We occasionally need people to able to cover the absence of cleaning, catering or lunchtime supervisory staff and this is work which could lead to a permanent post. If you could be suitable and available for such please contact the school office with your details.
