Teacher recruitment

Our schools are looking for first rate teachers who can make a difference to children and young people. 

If you are an experienced (qualified) teacher who is looking for supply teaching opportunities you can apply via Education Personnel Management. If you are a newly qualified teacher who would like to work in a Peterborough school you have two options open to you.  You can apply to schools directly through Education Personnel Management or you can submit a general application to our newly qualified teacher recruitment database. If you would like to become a teacher, please visit our routes into teaching page.

Trained outside the European Economic area

Teachers who are trained outside the European Economic Area may work for up to four years in the UK without needing to gain Qualified Teacher Status, after that time you must have Qualified Teacher Status to continue teaching. Providing an overseas trained teacher is employed in a school as a teacher they gain Qualified Teacher Status via the Overseas Trained Teaching Programme. Overseas trained teachers who are not currently employed by a school will first need to find a teaching post.  We do not provide a service to find jobs for overseas trained teachers. You can find details of vacancies from Education Personnel Management, Times Educational Supplement, local newspapers and Tuesday's Guardian.

You will also need to be eligible for a work permit and be resident in the country, you can check your eligibility for a work permit at Work Permits UK. If you hold the correct qualifications and permits, are in the UK or about to move here, and would like the opportunity to gain QTS through the OTT route, you must secure a post within one of Peterborough's schools.

Trained inside the European Economic area

If you have qualified as a teacher inside the European Economic area and wish to teach in the UK, mobility laws apply and you can access teaching positions in the same way as UK trained teachers.
