Trouble Recruiting

    When I was applying for a full time post I was rejected time and time again because I'm UPS and schools all want cheap NQTs. There are loads of good teachers out htere on supply looking for a permanent post but so many have just given up because they know they are simply too expensive.

    I'm a science NQT who graduated in 2011. I am currently working as a supply teacher. I have applied for lots of jobs but don't even get an interview
     
  3. Got to get your head to pay for the more expensive advert
     
  4. I recently applied for a job at a fairly ordinary school in Sheffield and they had 129 applications for a Teacher of Science job!
     
  5. We are interviewing next week for a promoted post holder on a decent TLR - we got a reasonable amount applying - 20 but only shortlisted 4 as the standard of the applications was dire. If past experiences are anything to go by we always then send home at least 2 as the quality of teaching isn't good enough. Got my fingers crossed for next week that at least 1 of the 4 is good enough!
     
  6. Offer a recruitment bonus
     
  7. Go to all the local Teacher Training providers and ask if they have trainees without jobs Even then also offer places on placements to them all and I imagine you can then get local trainees who, when they work in the school, will be happy to apply for jobs there!
