Newly Qualified Teachers - NQTs

Are you about to finish your PGCE and thinking about your next step? Or are you in between placements and looking for some interim work?

We love NQTs and we can help you to find work. It can be difficult to navigate through all of your options. You’re not alone and we’re here to help. We can work on your behalf, with no cost to you, to investigate potential job opportunities in your local area.

Our registration and clearance process is quick and easy. You’ll then be on your way to a career in teaching.

Overseas Teachers

We welcome overseas teachers with Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) who can provide the required identity and compliance documentation. To find out whether you qualify for Qualified Teaching Status and how you go about getting it, please visit the UK Government’s website.

Education People doesn’t currently recruit teachers for posts teaching abroad.

Registration process

We like to keep things simple. Here’s our three-step registration process:

1. Informal chat We’ll set-up a convenient time to have a chat with you over the phone about your work history, current situation and what sort of role that you’re looking for. It would be helpful for you to have a copy of your CV in front of you but this isn’t essential.

2. Registration interview Next, we’ll arrange a face-to-face interview so that we can get to know you a bit better. You’ll fill out registration paperwork and we’ll verify your identity and credential documents. We will discuss your job requirements and how we will work with you.

3. Clearance checks At this point we then need to conduct the necessary compliance and clearance checks to get you in the classroom. Our team works efficiently to get these through as quickly as possible. Once this process is complete, we will then be able to book your first assignment.

We like to reward our candidates so as a way of saying thanks, we’ll give you a £50 voucher for either Amazon or M&S if you ‘Refer a friend’ to us.

2. Your friend goes through our registration and clearance check process.

3. Once cleared, your friend completes ten days’ work through Education People.
