UK Teaching Jobs
At Uteach our goal is to place teachers in UK teaching jobs or teaching jobs abroad. We aim to place the right teachers in the right schools, finding the best available options for both the teacher and the school. We deal with UK teachers on a daily basis and place hundreds of teachers in full-time/permanent teaching positions every year.
Lack of UK Teaching Jobs & Relocation to Teaching Jobs in England
The issues surrounding the levels of public sector spending have been well-publicised and have led to a distinct lack of teaching jobs in certain areas of the United Kingdom. The worst effected areas lacking in UK teaching jobs are Scotland & Northern Ireland, while in certain areas there is a wealth of teaching jobs in England, although the North of England and Wales do not have many. By taking up a teaching job elsewhere in the UK or a teaching job abroad, this allows you to to ensure your skills stay up-to-date and fresh, while putting you at an advantageous position if you then apply for other UK teaching jobs in your local area when they become available.
This is especially true when you’re at the start or early stages of your teaching career. Some of you may already have a few years’ teaching experience, or completed a probation year, and we know that you’re keen to make your mark.
We know that being a good teacher is not just about having the skill, but the confidence to pass on knowledge and that too long out of the classroom can have an impact.
At Uteach, our fully-accredited team, many of whom come from a teaching background, will help you find a UK teaching job or a teaching job abroad in the school and an area that is right for you.
Teachers Struggle to find Teaching Jobs in Scotland
A study by the General Teaching Council for Scotland found that the number of new teachers securing full-time teaching posts is falling with just one in six newly qualified teachers securing a full-time permanent job (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-11950473). There are also a large number of teachers qualifying who do not enter the profession (http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2010/jan/01/teachers-leaving-profession-shortages ).
