Entry requirements

Applicants normally need to have a relevant degree, with a degree classification of 2.2 or above. You are expected to have GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent), in Maths, English and Science at the point of application. You are expected to have at least 10 days' experience of working with children in a London state primary school. If your own background is in an urban, multicultural environment or you are bilingual or multilingual in community languages, your application is particularly welcome. Male applicants are also particularly welcomed as they are currently under-represented in this area of teaching.
