Looking for a gateway into teaching but have no formal experience?

Holyhead School is proud to offer an innovative pathway into the teaching profession that will not only help you understand the theory behind the psychology of learning it will also provide valuable experience and a salary!


The Cognition & Learning Department at Holyhead work across the whole school to support staff in removing potential barriers to learning. We are currently looking to recruit 2 new team members who are excited to learn about and implement cutting edge, well researched and evidence based strategies to engage learners of all abilities.


You will be working in a student centric department and have access to information from external agencies such as Educational Psychologists, Communication in Autism Team and Pupil and School Support. You will learn about the latest movements and legalities in the SEN world and will rapidly know more about Educational Health Care Plans than most teaching course lecturers.


You will have the opportunity to develop relationships with students in small groups as well as work with our outstanding teaching staff in their lessons. This position will provide you with extensive lesson observations, specialist understanding and the chance to pass on your new knowledge to new staff through supporting the SENCo during training facilitation.

The contract lasts for a year and ends with the opportunity to enter into a Schools Direct salary or training pathway in one of the schools within the RSA Academies’ Teaching School Alliance.
