How to make your teaching application successful

When you are applying for teaching jobs, it can be tempting to simply apply once to an agency, and let them do the heavy lifting for you.

We would recommend a more thoughtful approach, involving a smaller number of applications to carefully chosen schools. Teachers who apply directly to a school, rather than via an agency, have the added benefit of not carrying a £4,000 recruitment fee.

Below are links to the guidance we think will make your application more successful.

  • Where to find teaching jobs
  • Choosing a School to work in
  • A successful teaching job personal statement
  • A successful observation lesson
  • A successful teaching job interview
