Newly Qualified Teachers
You’ve finished (or are about to finish) your hard-earned teaching qualification, now you need a job… But not just any teaching job. The statistics are worrying. We’re told that 4 in 10 Newly Qualified Teacher jobs are quit in their first year. Usually it’s because they have not found the right job in the right school. They haven’t found a job they love.
That’s where Supply Desk comes in. Staffed by ex-teachers, we know how important it is for newly qualified teachers to find a teaching job in a school that suits their classroom style and educational philosophy. It’s also important to become an integral part of the school community. Because our consultants are ex-teachers, they know the questions to ask to ensure we find you the right job to start your career in.
Some NQTs prefer to start their careers as supply or fixed-contract teachers. This gives them a broad experience of a range of schools before committing to one on a more permanent basis. Unlike other agencies, we fully support our newly qualified supply teachers with ongoing training and professional development, to ensure their skills are optimised for their new classrooms. Other NQTs prefer to work in a permanent teaching job right from the start, to fully immerse themselves in the culture and community of their new school.
