How to get a great teacher job without leaving your house
The next time you’re reading a list of teachers to work for, think twice.
You can’t rely on one or two.
There’s no one-size-fits-all.
It depends on a lot of factors.
But if you’re one of those teachers who’s not sure where to start, or you’ve been asked to fill a vacancy on your staff, here are some of the best places to start.
And before you say “oh, but what about a job in the public sector?”, the truth is that you can do both.
If you’re a teacher with a postgraduate degree, you can find work in some of Europe’s largest public-sector institutions, including education, health and social care, or work in a university or university research centre.
There are lots of jobs out there, but there’s also a lot to consider.
Here’s our guide to the top five places to work in 2019.
There’s a new school teacher on the way.
And if you’ve never worked in an English school before, or if you don’t fancy teaching in a classroom, you’re in luck.
The new school teaching contract is up in October 2019, and if you have an A-level qualification, you could find a post-graduate position in a local authority.
But don’t worry if you can’t find the right job.
Many people who apply for teaching jobs, or for posts in schools, don’t really have any experience teaching.
That’s where the online recruitment site, Teach for Britain, can help.
It’s an excellent place to learn from the best teachers in the world, and you can start by signing up for the Teach for Wales recruitment programme.
If that’s not an option, or is too expensive for you, there are some fantastic options available from Teach for Scotland.
It may be a good idea to apply for a part-time teaching job if you want to take the next step up in your career.
If your current teaching job is getting less and less interesting and you’d like to take on a full-time position, there’s a chance you could be a candidate for Teach for England, the UK’s government’s job creation agency.
If you’re an experienced teacher and you want the most out of your career, you’ll probably need to work as a teacher in an academic classroom.
But this isn’t always possible.
You could apply to work with the school’s curriculum manager, who will take the best of your teaching, and use it to develop the curriculum for students.
Or you could take on an independent teaching role.
If this sounds like something you might like, consider applying to work alongside a teacher from the local school.
Or perhaps you’d prefer to work directly with an organisation, such as the London School of Economics, which has a range of independent teaching positions available.
If the school you want is in a remote part of the country, you may be able to get an online postgraduate placement.
This can be a great option for those who want to be on their own in the future, or are looking for a fulltime job.
If your career is moving into a new area, or your current job isn’t the right fit for you – or you’re just really busy – there’s always the chance you’ll find a new job, via Teach for India, a partnership between India’s government and some of its most prestigious schools.
It sounds like a huge job, but it’s not a big deal if you work at the right time.
You’ll have a chance to grow in the role you’re doing right now.
It’s just like your first job, you need to take advantage of the right opportunities.
And remember: the best way to get work as an independent teacher is to work at an academic institution.
That way, you learn to teach in a way that suits your strengths, and be able work with other teachers in different areas.
