What is the Aspiring Teachers Programme?

Islington based, Newington Green and Rotherfield Primary Schools have partnered with Clarus Education to recruit passionate Graduate Teaching Assistants, who are looking to train as Primary Teachers.

This exciting opportunity will see you kick off your journey, working as a Teaching Assistant through Nursery to Year 6 with a range of children.

Successful completion of your first year on the Aspiring Teacher Programme and a TAP (Teacher Apprenticeship Programme) application, will see you undertake a 4 Term Teacher training course, followed by a 2 term FastTrack NQT induction; at which point you will be a Fully Qualified Primary Teacher.

  • 5 star review  Everyone at Clarus, especially Ryan and Alison were brilliant in helping me to secure a temporary SEND Teacher job until the summer. They were very speedy in dealing with my application and confirming interviews and doing all the necessary paperwork. I am working in a great school - I am very grateful for all their help.

  • 5 star review  I'm incredibly happy with Clarus Education and in particular Senior Consultant George Mair. I was helped in finding a suitable school role to develop my career from and George made the entire process understandable and easy from the get go. They kept me in the loop and contacted me every step of the way, I highly recommend.

  • positive review  After starting my collaboration with the agency, Ryan was deeply involved in matching me with the right school and only suggested positions he knew would meet my personal needs and preferences. He offered great support throughout the whole process and went above and beyond to ensure I was confident and well-prepared for the interviews. Thanks to Ryan's help, I am now excited to start my first job in an amazing school, and I doubt such an opportunity would arise without his help; I cannot recommend him enough.

  • 5 star review  Nikki from Clarus Education was extremely helpful through my entire application process and prepared me well for my interview. She supported me through weeks of preparation and made me feel confident about my application. I could not recommend Clarus’ services more - they’re easy to talk to both via email & telephone. Thank you for all your help!
