Securing a Job
Securing a Job
Applying for your first teaching position can be daunting but you are not alone. The Generate Teaching Hub School Direct team will help and guide you through the process by offering training to help you to prepare for interviews.
We provide job hunting support in several ways:
- We will provide a mock interview scenario with a Headteacher which will be as authentic as possible followed by in-depth feedback on your application and interview.
- Working with a local school we also provide a observation exercise where you work with a group of children on a task whilst an experienced teacher observes your interaction – just as this will be for job interviews.
- Both before and after the mock interview day we offer training sessions on application and interview techniques. Sharing resources, examples and experiences for Trainee Teachers to absorb as they build their confidence for applying for the first job.
- Finally, your School Direct Mentor is also available to offer feedback and advice on your job applications (such as reading your draft personal statement).
All our Trainee Teachers move on from their year with Generate Teaching Hub School Direct ready for work; many securing jobs prior to the end of term.
As a Teaching School Hub for the local area, any Trainee Teachers securing their first position in Halton, Warrington or Wigan schools, will benefit from our training and mentoring support for their first two years as a qualified teacher on our Early Career Framework (ECF) programme.
