Permanent Teaching Roles

UK permanent teaching positions

What is classified as a Permanent Teaching Role?

Not only can Protocol Education find you supply teaching jobs, short- and long-term roles, but we can also help Australian teachers find permanent teaching roles. A permanent teaching position means that the school has hired you directly and you are no longer paid using Protocol Education's weekly timesheets (like you are when you are in a supply, short-term or long term role).

When you are in a permanent role the school pays you a salary which includes sickness cover and holiday pay. A permanent role lasts indefinitely and can start at any time, but generally starts at the beginning of a term. In some cases a teacher will initially be in a long-term contract with a school and then after one or two terms be made permanent, once a school has established a relationship and need a permanent member of staff.

The UK School Year:

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.
