Secondary English Teacher
A Secondary English Teacher is responsible for teaching English to pupils in Key Stages 3 and 4 (aged 11 to 16 years). The job can be rewarding, working with young people at an age where they are starting to formulate their own ideas and reasoning strategies while studying English. A Secondary English Teacher will also be preparing pupils for their GCSE exams.
