May 31st is the deadline for teachers currently in post to hand in their notice, so schools will be recruiting over the next few weeks to beat the deadline. Then after that deadline, they may find that their staff have handed in their notice, so have vacancies to fill for September. We can expect more vacancies to be advertised in early June. Be prepared for the ad for the job in the school of your dreams! Two of our most popular TES Weekend Workshops are running again on this Saturday 12 May Winning That Teaching Job - get your application right, get noticed and perform well at interview - www.tesweekendworkshop103.eventbrite.co.uk Interview Coaching - Improve your performance, showcase your skills and give a professional impression (a group workshop with a maximum of six attendees) - www.tesweekendworkshop102.eventbrite.co.uk These are each half a day, and are held at the TES Headquarters in Holborn, Central London. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, and do practical exercises to help you see what you need to do to stand out of the crowd. For the seminar, It’s not a load of people sitting in a hall; there are a group of you, sitting round a boardroom table, so you can feel relaxed and ask questions. Here are some comments from people who have attended our seminars: Frankly, the best delivered seminar I have ever attended. This has been a very useful and well organised seminar with practical tips for improving the difficult task of selling yourself Excellent advice, very helpful for executive summaries This has been terrific and has really met my needs. This was particularly useful for writing a personal statement The pace was perfect and unlike some CPD activities, the practical sessions were enjoyable and useful Fantastic presenters, very useful, highly recommended Fabulous, really helpful! I followed what I learnt on the seminar and have just landed my dream job! After attending your course I have just accepted my first teaching post. Since attending the course I've applied for two positions, and am shortlisted for both.
