Recruiting Newly Qualified Teachers for Luton
Having the best candidate for the post is crucial to the success and achievement of all pupils in Luton schools. The Teacher Recruitment Team, through a range of initiatives, works with local training providers and also promotes working in Luton to high-quality applicants from other parts of the UK, thus broadening the likely field of applicants and endeavouring to secure the strongest possible field for advertised teaching posts in Luton schools. This team has a long and well established success rate for recruiting Newly Qualified Teachers for Luton.
The service offers a range of activities aimed at attracting trainee teachers to Luton for their first teaching post via a pool system, which involves shortlisting NQT application forms and circulating a list of available NQTs. Other activities include facilitating the recruitment of Headteachers and senior leaders. These activities are vital in meeting the ongoing challenge of providing our schools with high quality staff when the need for school places is ever increasing. In addition we offer a programme for High Level Teaching Assistants.
