Radley College  have an excellent opportunity for a Graduate Assistant to work at the school for the academic year 2024-25. The ideal start date would be 1 September but we would be happy to wait until January 2025 for the right candidate.

The position is designed to give a recent graduate or postgraduate in English the opportunity to gain experience of teaching at advanced secondary level (ages 13-18). Graduate Assistants teach a reduced workload – about 15 forty minute periods per week. We will give the necessary training, and also provide the opportunity for lesson observation.

We have had great success in Graduate Assistants moving to full-time appointments at the College, but this is not an expectation.

In addition to a salary of £19,500 pa (which will be reviewed over the summer as part of the usual salary review) the College will provide accommodation, and meals during term time, all free of charge. In short, the person we hope to appoint will be an enthusiast for English, who may be considering a career in teaching. The opportunity we are offering is to ‘try before you buy’ with plenty of help and support, and the added bonus of a salary and accommodation.
