Teacher Recruitment Service

HR services for schools and academies

A teacher surrounded by engaged students used to illustrate the value of the Schools' Choice Teacher Recruitment Service.

As well as supporting school recruitment, this service promotes teaching excellence and encourages the recruitment of good and outstanding teachers. The service offers:

  • access to the ‘pool’ of applicants who are looking for a teaching post: this will allow schools direct access to a candidate's application form and references from their ITT provider and placement school/s;
  • promotion of your vacancies via newsletters sent direct to trainee teachers and postings on Teach Suffolk social media; and 
  • one hour’s telephone-based recruitment consultancy per annum.

If you currently buy into the Teacher Recruitment Service you can access the NQT pool here https://nqt.schoolschoice.org/.  

You can also access our toolbox to help you recruit in a challenging market and to help with more general advice on recruitment and selection, below.
