Highlighting your qualities enables you to catch headteachers' attention. You will be able to update your profile from your laptop, iPad or mobile phone whenever you choose during your training (e.g. following mentor feedback, CPD, lesson observations, school experiences, reports).
Headteachers (from our database of over 24000 schools) will be alerted immediately to trainees looking for future posts and your online profile will be accessed by those schools in your chosen phase, subject and geographical area.
Schools will be able to track your progress as you update your profile throughout the year and be able to contact you (via our secure server) as soon as they have an appropriate vacancy or potential vacancy.
As there is a teacher shortage, schools are looking to appoint earlier and earlier during the academic year for jobs starting in the following September. By offering a continuous opportunity to put your details in front of Headteachers, Teacher Profiles puts you at the front of the queue.
Teacher Profiles is something new. It is different from commercial teacher recruitment agencies.
Teacher Profiles has been conceived with trainees and schools in mind and has been developed by experienced Headteachers and senior leaders with input from teacher trainers, teachers and Headteachers.
Unlike agencies we do not charge schools a premium for appointing trainees who have signed up with us.
On average agencies charge schools between 15% and 20% of a teacher’s salary payable on appointment. This means that any potential teacher who signs up to an agency could cost the school a further £5000+ over a non-agency teacher. We believe this not only puts a strain on school budgets but also places expensive agency staff at a disadvantage.
Teacher Profiles is free to schools, thus levelling the playing field for all our teachers and enabling schools to appoint on quality not cost.
