Earlier recruitment?

    So, is it just me, or is the season getting earlier and earlier?

    I'm back in the UK these days, but my ex-colleagues all seem to have been hired by December.

    Has the US and UK teacher shortage had an effect, or are there still more applications than you can shake a stick at?

    My current and previous school wanted contracts resigned by the end of October. Personally i have never been recruited later than December, but then i am in a shortage subject area. There seems to be a load of Canadians, Americans and Aussies out there on the circuit, and more and more trying to get onto the circus ride every year. In my last 3 schools i have been in the minority as a Brit, although these have all been IB schools and not British curriculum
