How it works
We contact applicants at the beginning of March to arrange a date for your interview. If you are successful at the interview, we will help you find vacancies that match your preferences.
A headteacher will then contact you directly as soon as a possible placement becomes available. You can still apply for other teaching vacancies and you do not have to accept a job unless you feel it is right for you.
You can still apply for any other vacancies that arise and you do not have to accept a job unless you feel it is right for you. Once you have found the right job we will send you an induction pack outlining what you will be doing in your first year and the support you will receive.

- your name
- telephone number
- year group preferences
- curriculum strengths
- geographical area in which you are prepared to work.
