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 have only marvelous things to say about this agency. When I first had my interview with them I was desperate because I wanted to gain experience in a secondary school and I couldn't get any place to start with. Then, I was so lucky to have met such a great team of professional workers who helped me throughout all the things I had to do step by step and always comforting me that I would find a place to start my career. My main guidance was Alison Watkis who explained me in details everything I needed to do and never doubt for a moment that I could not find a place. Thanks to Alison, I had one of the best experiences of my life in such an amazing school. I can't thank them enough for this awesome opportunity. I highly recommend this agency for any teaching role one might look for from TA, NQT's to professional teachers. A great team of professionals who are always there for you, ready to help you with everything you need. A huge THANKS guys, you rock ��

  • 5 star review  I was looking for a new teaching job but not sure what sort of role I wanted to do. I sent my CV to Clarus Education and was very quickly contacted by Danny. He really listened to what I was saying about my career so far, my experience in special needs and my interest in returning to mainstream but with a special needs focus. He quickly matched me with the perfect job for me right now, doing maternity cover in a mainstream school as an intervention teacher for children with language and communication difficulties. Within days I had an interview and was appointed to the position. Throughout the process, Danny was professional, friendly and efficient. I felt that Danny took the time to listen to me properly and understand what is important to me in a job so he was able to find me the right one. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Clarus Education to other teachers. Thank you so much.

  • positive review  Clarus Education, and in particular Nikki Webber, have offered a proactive and quality service in finding me a teaching position quickly and efficiently. Having found myself looking for employment at an unusual time in the year for teaching positions, and after a time of personal tumult, Nikki was kind and generous in her approach. I'm hugely grateful to Nikki and Clarus for their help, and will be recommending them in the future.
