Brighton College is seeking to appoint a number of Post Graduate Assistant Teachers of Sport. These fixed-term roles until August 2022 are anticipated to start in September 2021.


The role would suit a new graduate considering a career in teaching, or someone switching into education from another sector, including those retiring from professional sport. No teaching experience or qualification is required. Fundamentally, we are looking for someone who is passionate about sport and wishes to share that passion with enthusiastic and energetic young people. We are particularly interested in candidates who are able to offer coaching to a good standard in at least two of the ‘core’ sports listed above, although applicants are invited to point to other areas of sporting specialism and interest as part of their applications.

The post may involve some or all of the following:

  • Leading and coaching games sessions in one ‘core’ sport per term
  • Accompanying teams to fixtures and potentially officiating
  • Being a boarding house tutor – working with boarding staff to deliver quality pastoral care and activities for boarding pupils. This will include regular (and occasionally overnight) duties
  • Team-teaching and assisting experienced subject teachers in academic lessons or teaching small groups in specialised topic areas
  • Running or assisting with societies and co-curricular activities as appropriate
  • Being involved in school visits
  • Undertaking cover duties.

The appointed candidates will be associate members of the Common Room.

All Post-Graduate Assistant Teachers joining Brighton will have the benefit of guidance from an experienced mentor, whose role it will be to provide support during their probationary period. Thereafter, all teachers are expected to participate in continuous professional development, throughout their time at the College
