Ark Trainee Physics Teacher

About the role:

You will be training to be a Physics Teacher - this is a great opportunity to train to teach outstanding lessons and therefore help pupils achieve excellent academic results in Physics.

Ark: Why we teach
Everyone has had at least one teacher in their life that inspired them.

As a physics teacher, you have the privilege of unpacking the universe with young people as you expand their knowledge. You’ll be provided with everything you need, from expertise to support, to become a fantastic Physics teacher.

You will not only learn how to support and structure debate in science lessons and set up practical’s but learn how to engage students in science and convey the story of everything from energy to an equation!

About Ark:

Ark is a charity that aims to transform children’s lives through education. In the UK, the strongest predictor of how a child will do at school continues to be what their parents do for a living – but why should this be the accepted status quo? By working in our network at one of our 39 schools, you will be directly making a positive impact on young people’s lives through high-quality teaching and thoughtful consideration of all backgrounds and needs, making educational equity a reality. 

About Ark Teacher Training:

Ark Teacher Training (ATT) is a school-based programme offering the perfect mixture of theory and classroom practice to develop you into the best teacher you can be.

We are very proud to have just received our second ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in all categories! There are only a few ITTs in the UK that can say the same. Alongside this, our programme is also incredibly supportive and bespoke, as you will see below. 

Key responsibilities:

  • To engage in daily professional development activities
  • To plan, resource and deliver lessons to the highest possible standard that ensure learning and progress of all pupils
  • To provide a nurturing classroom and academy environment that helps pupils to develop as learners 
  • To help to maintain/establish discipline across the whole school
  • To contribute to the effective working of the school
