Sports Graduates to support challenging behaviour in Primary and Secondary school in Northampton

Monarch Education are currently working in partnership with a number of Schools across the Northamptonshire area (including Towcester, Kettering and Northampton). In line with the needs of these schools, we are currently actively seeking to recruit a number of Graduate Level Teaching / Support Assistants to work with pupils with behavioural difficulties or those who have become disengaged with the curriculum.

A number of schools that we currently engage with are looking to work with Graduates with a Sports background (either through coaching or sports related degree), to utilise their strong sports skills to help minimise disruption and bring pupils back on track.

The right candidates would be working in the classroom, supporting pupils who display low-level behavioural difficulties or who have become distracted from their learning. You would be working alongside these pupils as a strong role model, working to understand the pupil's background and needs to help bring them back on track and minimise disruption in the classroom. These pupils are often performing just slightly below national expected standards, and require focussed attention and additional support to bride this attainment gap in the core subjects (Reading, Spelling & Grammar, Maths, Phonics).

This is wonderful opportunity for graduates of this calibre to embark on their career in Education. You would be classroom based, but there would also b opportunity to further utilise your Sports skills to lead after-school clubs / sports sessions. These are ideal roles for candidates who are looking to start a PGCE and wish to continue gaining experience in this sector. It is essential that you will have some experience supporting pupils; this could be in a voluntary placement at a school or previous paid employment.

These roles would be long term positions, running through to the end of the academic year, with the potential for permanent or fixed term contracts for candidates who really impress!
Working for Monarch you will:
*Work with your designated consultant who will listen to your career goals and work alongside you to help you achieve them!
*Have access to CPD opportunities
*Be fully support throughout the duration of your placement

If this sounds like the next step in your career then please apply to this advert with a CV or contact me directly on or

We are committed to providing equal opportunities for all candidates as well as adhering to strict Safeguarding procedures. Your application will be subject to 2 references and an enhanced DBS check.
