Become a Graduate Teaching Assistant

An inspiring scheme to take you further

Have you recently completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Wolverhampton? Are you looking for employment opportunities in the post compulsory education sector?

Apply to be part of our unique Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) scheme, now entering its sixth year, and you will be supported on your career pathway into further education.

The scheme has an established reputation of putting students first, by providing ladders of opportunity for successful participation in higher education. Since its introduction, it has had at its heart a professional development programme leading to the award of PGCE in Post Compulsory Education.

If you are a University of Wolverhampton graduate with a relevant undergraduate degree, completed within the last 12 months, you can gain career-enhancing experience in a fixed period, academic support role.

As a GTA, you will work closely with academic subject specialist teams and will be assigned subject mentors and academic line managers, as quoted below:

”I observed her (GTA) teach, I was deeply impressed by her enthusiasm, commitment and belief in the students.  She empowers the students to link reflections on experiences to theories.”

“It was a joy to observe such enthusiasm and passion for teaching and so well prepared – she (GTA) reminded me to do more of the same.”
