Secondary school; where young children start to transform into productive and informed young adults.
Slightly less than half of the estimated 8.2 million students in the United Kingdom are secondary school pupils attending state-funded schools; 3.2 million. Like most of the numbers, these are bound to rise yearly. The need for more secondary school teachers mirrors the need for primary school teachers but the make-up and core of what makes a secondary school teacher is not the same. As with any education based position, qualifications and experience are key and in our years of placing teachers at all levels, we have learnt these lessons and imparted our wisdom on to employers and teachers alike.
Teaching Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 differs from the first three greatly as they build on the foundation gained in EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), and Key Stages 1 and 2 to help mould and shape the pupils into the young adults they will grow to be. It is at these stages where pupils start to find their personalities and strengths in education and start to figure out who they are and what they will go on to study in further education if that is something they choose.
When working with applicants, these criteria and more are things that Pear Education takes into consideration before putting forth candidates for specific jobs. This is part of the reason why our success rate is at the high level it is today! So you can rest assured that a Pear Education teacher is always the best and most qualified for the position at hand.
