The role of a class teacher within Primary Education is to develop schemes of work and lesson plans in line with the national primary curriculum and early years’ framework. You are responsible for developing and fostering the appropriate skills and social abilities, organising the classroom and learning resources, and creating displays to encourage a positive learning environment for pupils aged 3-11 years.

A successful primary teacher will be confident in motivating pupils with enthusiastic, imaginative presentation whilst maintaining discipline and ensuring pupil progress in line with the appropriate framework.

Secondary school teachers are subject specialists, skilled and trained to teach one or possibly two subjects across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. As a subject specialist, a secondary school teacher is responsible for ensuring they are up to date with developments in their subject area, new resources, methods and national objectives.

Secondary school national curriculum

The role of a secondary school teacher has become more complex, as new teaching methods and resources have been introduced and developed. Over the course of the academic year, teachers are tasked with preparing pupils for qualifications and external examinations, whilst managing pupil behaviour, undertaking pastoral duties, and supporting children through academic and personal difficulties.

To ensure teaching standards are maintained, teachers undergo regular observations, participating in regular training through INSET and CPD, contributing towards the training and development of trainee teachers and NQTs. The introduction and support of subject specific teaching assistants has become a welcome addition to the classroom and has strengthened the focus on raising attainment, providing dedicated pupil support on a 1:1 and small group basis.

London secondary schools have become very diverse learning environments, catering for pupils of differing abilities, aged 11-16yrs and 11-18yrs. Clarus Education partner and support a number of schools, from voluntary aided faith schools and state maintained comprehensives though to outstanding academies.

  • 5 star review  I graduated last summer, and registered with the agency to apply for jobs as a teaching assistant to gain experience working in a school and decide whether I wanted to go into teaching. I was quickly given an interview, and Natalie came and met me at my school on my interview day to go through all the relevant paperwork and settle my nerves! I thoroughly enjoyed my year at the school working as a learning support assistant, and was sorry to finish in july. I gained experience in a variety of one-to-one, small group, and general class support roles. Natalie was always helpful in answering any queries I had, and for encouragement and support along the way. The experience helped my gain a place on a teacher training program me starting this September. Would recommend working with Clarus to anyone looking to gain some great experience in an enjoyable job in school!

  • 5 star review  Excellent consultancy to work for (regardless of what stage in the section of education you are) . They are in contact with brilliant schools in London and will always try their absolute hardest to secure you at least an interview/trial day. They go above and beyond with regards to prepping you for your 1st day at whatever school you're going to and are always happy to fight your corner with regards to securing a job within the educational sector. I have been highly fortunate of having Shevonnae and Kelvin as my contacts within Clarus and they have been fantastic from day one. A highly recommended 1st step for any aspiring teachers!
