We have an exciting opportunity to join our well-established teacher-training programme in our Drama department.
At KGS we are committed to ensuring that our trainees become the best teacher they can be at KGS and within the teaching profession. Our teacher training programme offers a salary whilst you are training and funding towards your PGCE course. This is a two year fixed term contract. In year one you will work towards your PGCE with Buckingham University and in year two you will complete your Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) year while having the support of an experienced mentor usually the Director of Drama.
The post will offer considerable opportunities to work in a variety of ways with a highly motivated and creative body of students. The department has excellent facilities including a modern Theatre, Studio, Green Room/dressing rooms, office, storage facilities and use of the School Hall.
Drama is taught to all KS3 classes and offered as an option for GCSE (AQA) and A level (EDEXCEL). In addition, we produce three main productions a year (Lower, Middle and Senior Production), House Drama and Dance events, a Sixth Form Drama festival, a Revue, and examination performances. As well as curricular teaching, we would expect the Trainee Teacher of Drama to be involved in the co-curricular programme as required by the Director of Drama.
With a starting salary of c.£25,000 in the first year plus part funding for your PGCE and the option of school accommodation for two years, this is a great opportunity and a financially rewarding way of embarking on a career in teaching.
