The role of a class teacher within Primary Education is to develop schemes of work and lesson plans in line with the national primary curriculum and early years’ framework. You are responsible for developing and fostering the appropriate skills and social abilities, organising the classroom and learning resources, and creating displays to encourage a positive learning environment for pupils aged 3-11 years.

A successful primary teacher will be confident in motivating pupils with enthusiastic, imaginative presentation whilst maintaining discipline and ensuring pupil progress in line with the appropriate framework.

Secondary school teachers are subject specialists, skilled and trained to teach one or possibly two subjects across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. As a subject specialist, a secondary school teacher is responsible for ensuring they are up to date with developments in their subject area, new resources, methods and national objectives.

Secondary school national curriculum

The role of a secondary school teacher has become more complex, as new teaching methods and resources have been introduced and developed. Over the course of the academic year, teachers are tasked with preparing pupils for qualifications and external examinations, whilst managing pupil behaviour, undertaking pastoral duties, and supporting children through academic and personal difficulties.

To ensure teaching standards are maintained, teachers undergo regular observations, participating in regular training through INSET and CPD, contributing towards the training and development of trainee teachers and NQTs. The introduction and support of subject specific teaching assistants has become a welcome addition to the classroom and has strengthened the focus on raising attainment, providing dedicated pupil support on a 1:1 and small group basis.

London secondary schools have become very diverse learning environments, catering for pupils of differing abilities, aged 11-16yrs and 11-18yrs. Clarus Education partner and support a number of schools, from voluntary aided faith schools and state maintained comprehensives though to outstanding academies.

  • 5 star review  Nikki Webber has been my main contact at Clarus and she has been great. Only a few weeks after getting into contact with Clarus, Nikki has been able to find me a suitable teaching assistant role which I start in September. I was given a trial day, which Nikki full debriefed me on, and I was offered the job on the same day. Nikki is always keeping in contact with me and ensuring that I am happy every step of the way. Cannot praise her and Clarus enough !

  • 5 star review  After graduating from university and considering different routes into teaching I was recommended to contact Clarus Education through a good friend of mine. Upon contacting Clarus I highlighted my needs and was pointed immediately in the right direction to Danny who works within schools in my area. After being in contact with him for no longer than a day, he had already organised an interview for me, for a school he felt suited my interests, needs and aspirations for a school I wanted to work in. The following day after repeated silly emails of myself panicking and Danny being so relaxed and provided excellent advice, I was offered a job and guaranteed to start my teacher training, all organised and accepted within 48 hours!!!! I cannot thank Clarus enough for their professionalism, kindness and considerations into what was the right direction for me. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get into teaching whether it's teacher training, NQT or a leading role.
