St Mary’s College is looking to appoint salaried / non-salaried trainee music teachers who wish to gain Qualified Teacher Status with the option of PGCE. We offer training courses in Music (Secondary education; 11-16/18) as well as an innovative course in Music combined with specialist instrumental teaching (5-16).
We are seeking talented graduates with strong credentials in music theory and performance. You must be able to show initiative, be self-motivated and have a love for learning, and be resilient, determined and flexible. Excellent communication skills are essential, especially an ability to communicate with young people.
St Mary’s College Academy of Music and Performing Arts is a large, vibrant professional music teaching faculty, that employs over 12 music teachers and works across 9 primary and secondary schools in Hull (City of Culture). Ours programmes provide an ideal balance of school-based experience with professional and subject-specific training.
You will be fully integrated into the faculty where you will learn from an experienced mentor and other host teachers. You will receive training in how to teach across the 11-16 age range, including techniques for managing classroom behaviour and ensuring pupils of all abilities and needs can learn and make good progress. You will also have opportunities to teach post-16 lessons and get involved in a range of extra-curricular trips and activities.
Each week you will receive high quality one-to-one mentoring from a Music specialist as well as core Professional Studies training delivered by Specialist leaders in Education (SLEs). There are also regular Music Subject Knowledge and Pedagogy training sessions, and university-led tuition to support your PGCE assignments.
As well as your two main placements, we also arrange visits for you to spend time in Primary schools, a Special School and a contrasting secondary school as part of your programme to enable you to gain further experience of the education sector.
