Full time teaching jobs in England

What is Classified as Full Time?

A full time teaching job is an assignment which lasts for one academic term or more. Full time positions are for those teachers who ideally want their own class (in Primary schools) or their own lessons (in Secondary). It allows you to develop your teaching practice and, more importantly, makes you more employable when you return home to Australia! Aussie Principals love a teacher with a strong 'point of difference' on their CV and teaching in the UK offers just that. 

Obviously full time positions do require committment; lesson plans, unit outlines, report writing, parent teacher interviews etc so they are quite involved. If you are considering a long term role simply for the job security and you aren't too keen on the workload outside of your 9am-3pm teaching load then maybe our Guaranteed Work Schemes are for you!

In the UK there are three academic terms:

Autumn Term (starts September): Generally, most schools do not identify their staffing needs to us for the September term until after the Summer half-term break, and resignation deadlines have passed (end May).  Placement can occur any time from after Easter through to the last few days of term (3rd week in July), though we do find the months of June and July the busiest in terms of placement.  

Spring Term (starts January): Generally, most schools do not identify their staffing needs to us for the January term until after the Autumn half-term break, and resignation deadlines have passed (end October).  Placement can occur any time from September through to the last few days of term (just before Christmas), though we do find the months of November and December the busiest in terms of placement. 

Summer Term (starts April): Generally, most schools do not identify their staffing needs to us for the April term until after the Spring half-term break, and resignation deadlines have passed (mid February).  Placement can occur any time from January through to the last few days of term (just before Easter), though we do find the months of February and March the busiest in terms of placement.
