Teaching in a classroom

Could you be a role model for young people?

London schools and colleges need help with motivating their students to learn many subjects, especially English, maths, science, modern languages, business, computing, engineering, construction.

You would be a relatable positive role model, closer in age to the students than their normal adult contacts.

Explore Teaching consists of a 15 day placement in a school or college, working as a volunteer teaching assistant. While the scheme provides an opportunity to test the waters of a possible teaching career, it’s also a chance to inspire young students.

The placements will take place during Semester 2.

You receive a certificate, reference and entry onto the HEAR at the end of the placement.

Find out full details about the Explore Teaching Placement.

The application deadline is Monday 31 October.
