Geography Graduate Intern

Fixed Term Contract (1 September 2022 to 8 July 2023)

For September 2022, we wish to appoint a Geography Graduate Intern with a genuine passion for Geography, a desire to inspire this in others and an eagerness to develop their experience of teaching and working with young people. The successful candidate will contribute to academic, pastoral and extracurricular activities and will be keen to contribute fully to the life of the school. This is a residential role, with free accommodation and meals on the school estate.
Graduate interns receive access to sustained professional support throughout their year at Bedford School. They attend department meetings and work with a variety of teachers across their subject specialisms. Graduate interns also meet with the Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning) on a weekly basis to discuss their development and next steps. These sessions are designed to reflect on educational research and best practice. They regularly observe a variety of teachers both within and outside their faculty areas (there is protected time for this).
Graduate interns are given opportunities to teach small groups of students and will receive developmental feedback on their practice. They may also complete a research task surrounding an area of school life or strategy and present their findings to members of teaching staff. Our school is part of the Harpur Trust which offers a range of training modules that are applicable to both teaching and other professions.
Bedford School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Offers of appointment are subject to satisfactory references and DBS clearance.
Short-listed candidates will be invited to the school for interview which may be before the closing date. Candidates are therefore encouraged to apply early.
The Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning) Will Montgomery would be happy to talk to prospective
applicants and can be contacted through the main school reception on 01234 362200 or by email
Closing date: Monday 11th July (12 noon)
