Are you a teacher looking for a new challenge or are you a former teacher looking to return to the profession after some time away? If this sounds like you, then the change you are looking to make may be a lot closer than you think.
The GLF Schools multi-academy trust will be hosting a recruitment fair, sponsored by Eteach, to showcase career opportunities in GLF’s rapidly-expanding network of schools across south east England, on the following dates:
Wednesday 20 January (Chestnut Park Primary School in Croydon, 1pm to 2.30pm and 4.30pm to 6.30pm)
Thursday 21 January (Cordwalles School in Camberley, 4.30pm to 6.30pm)
Saturday 23 January (Glyn School in Ewell, 10am to 1pm)
Thursday 28 January (Whyteleafe School, 4.30pm to 6.30pm)
Saturday 30 January (Windmill School, 10am to noon)
Since it was established in 2012 as a partnership between two schools, the GLF group has grown into a trust which currently runs 16 schools across Surrey, Middlesex and Berkshire, from newly-opened one-form entry primaries to a large long-established secondary.
Each school within GLF Schools exists in its own right, maintaining its unique characteristics and individual identity reflecting its local community. Schools, work in collaboration with communities and come together with other members of the group to share ideas and experiences for the benefit of all.
GLF Executive Headteacher Jon Chaloner has over 20 years of experience in teaching and education leadership, and says its motto – ‘where children grow, learn and flourish’ – is central to the success of the group.
“In the GLF group we currently have 5100 children being taught by 738 members of staff in 16 schools, and this number will rise year on year as our new schools grow, which is why we’re so keen to recruit new teachers to work alongside the high quality staff that we already have,” he explained. “This event is an opportunity for people to hear about us, and to see what they can achieve at GLF Schools and for us to find out about them."
Existing members of staff from GLF’s primary and secondary schools will be on hand at Chestnut Park to talk to potential future colleagues about their work and roles, and share their own personal stories.
Teacher recruitment is a major challenge for schools and GLF hopes events like the one at Chestnut Park on 20 January will help to encourage potential staff to come and find out more about the opportunities available.
Mr Chaloner continued: "Whether you are an experienced school professional in a teaching or non-teaching role, or someone with no school experience, but an interest in working in a school environment, we look forward to meeting you."
