Are you a recent psychology graduate looking for your first role in a school? Are you looking for more guidance on what your next steps are?
With psychology graduates often being in demand by schools due to the skills they have gained through their studies, we have a large network of schools who are on the lookout for psychology graduates to fill our vacancies.
In terms of teaching assistants, these graduates can be most favoured by schools across the UK as the nature of their degree gives pupils a variety of academic, social and emotional support.
Regardless of whether it’s in primary education, secondary education or SEN, a teaching assistant role can allow a psychology graduate to put their latest theoretical knowledge into practice.
The majority of psychology graduates have a very broad knowledge and understanding of behavioural issues, and how to manage them which are seen as valuable resources to schools and teachers and ultimately beneficial to the pupils.
From teaching jobs specialising in psychology, to teaching assistants and cover supervisors, there are a wide range of opportunities for former psychology students to take advantage of and we’d love to hear from you!
What opportunities are available?
For everyone that has recently completed a PGCE degree or finished some form of formal teacher training, then we have lots of NQT roles across the UK available for you to take advantage of.
Schools are increasingly requesting recent graduates for their teaching assistant roles, with Psychology grads the most sought after.
The nature of university courses and the experience gained frequently means graduates are well placed to give pupils an array of academic, social and emotional support.
Cover Supervisor roles are an ideal way for you to see if a role as a teacher is what you would like to pursue. A Cover Supervisor will provide classroom support when a teacher is away and they are tasked with ensuring that pupils behave and complete pre-prepared work. A graduate is ideal for these roles as they will have some form of subject specialism.
