Find a good source of teaching job vacancies, read behind the lines and apply for teaching jobs.
Are you looking for a teaching job or you are thinking of changing jobs, the first thing you should always remember and to be very careful. Choosing the perfect school or college has far-reaching implications, not just for how happy and supported you feel, but for what kind of teacher you become.
Whether you are a new teacher or experienced or qualified teacher or looking to move up the career ladder, you need to pay close attention to the following three issues:
- A way to finding good sources of job vacancies
- Assessing adverts
- Deciding that you are the right “fit” for the school.
Sign up to jobors.com and get alerts of latest teaching vacancies. And make sure you customize your search so you don’t waste time trawling through jobs that are not relevant to you. Jobors provides jobs for Schools, Colleges and allows you to save your job search preferences by region, town and city, subject, phase and school type – and jobors will send you automatic email alerts of the latest vacancies.
Here are some more tips on what to try:
- Read the school’s website
- Read the Department for Education information about the school.
- Don’t jump to conclusions.
- Visit the school prior to interview if possible.
When you do visit, be sensitive to:
- First Impressions.
The advice to take from this is whatever the website or adverts say, try to visit a school before and decide for yourself whether you feel comfortable with it – whatever its reputation. If the school feels good because the staff seems genuinely hard working and friendly then it is probably the kind of school where not only children are thriving, but new teachers will too. Trust your instincts.
