Find your dream school job in Essex

  • Free return to teaching programme

    Thousands of former teachers return to the profession in the UK every year. But after a few years out of the classroom, we recognise the decision to return can be a daunting one, particularly with recent changes to the education system. Our FREE Return to Teaching programme aims to make that transition far easier.

    Starting on 23 March 2017, the intensive course will give you the confidence, skills and support you need to be school-ready for September and is suitable for both primary and secondary-trained teachers.
