Hi there, I have been teaching in Scotland for a while now and have a permanent job. Due to my partner's work situation, there's a high chance that a move to England will soon be on the cards, and I am trying to learn more about how teaching works in England compared to here. Above all, I would hate to leave my permanent post only to be unemployed indefinitely. We are looking at primarily these three areas: Exeter, Oxfordshire, and Leicester. Oxfordshire is the most likely of the 3 at the moment, but how my work situation would look would influence in which of these 3 we wend up in. I have been trying to look up jobs in the area, but a friend of mine said most vacancies in England only appear in the summer, for the following school year, and thus not much coming up now doesn't necessarily need that there isn't a teacher shortage/general need in the area. Certainly, there appears to be very little on the go right now (whereas here, it is more common for people to move now and start new roles after Christmas). Can anyone enlighten me as to how likely I would be to be able to get a permanent job in those areas, if I were to move to any of them next summer? Would any of them be particularly harder than the others? Thanks for any tips and advice.
