It can be hard to find the perfect job, especially when you are in the teaching profession. It’s incredibly demanding, extremely busy and hard to tell what a school is really like until you are there. We have asked our experts for some top teaching recruitment tips:
- Research the area. Know what schools are around and what they are like so that you can go into interviews or work placements with some knowledge behind you.
- Get to know the school. Speak to the staff and make sure you are memorable, as well as ensuring that you make a good impression on the pupils.
- Try supply teaching. This will give you the opportunity to try working in different schools so that you will have more of an idea about the environment you would like to work in.
- Find a recruitment specialist. They will be able to tell you about all the latest positions and whether you are qualified for them without you having to trawl through pages and pages of job adverts.
