What we are looking for


Teach Maidenhead is looking for trainees who can potentially take up paid teaching posts in one of our partnership schools once training is completed.  Our young people deserve the best teachers. Teach Maidenhead is therefore looking for these qualities in its trainees:

*         The ability to communicate effectively in spoken and written English

*         Evidence of subject knowledge and other requirements of the field of study

*         Enthusiasm and interest in the particular field of study

*         The ability to reflect creatively and critically

*         A positive attitude to young people including an understanding of the importance of establishing respectful, supportive and constructive relationships

*         High expectations of young people and a commitment to their achievement

*         Sense of the scope of a teacher’s professional skills and responsibilities

*         Ability to cope well in highly pressurised and demanding contexts

*         Commitment to collaboration and co-operative working with colleagues

*         Commitment to teaching and the School Direct programme
