“Every child deserves a great education and excellent teaching can make that happen. I decided I wanted to be a part of that” Amin, Ark Teacher Training Graduate

About The Role:

You will be training to be an English teacher - this is a great opportunity to train to teach outstanding lessons and therefore help pupils achieve excellent academic results and be a role-model, positively impacting the academy more widely.

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.
