Teaching in Bradford


Prospects Online

As we are heading in to what is normally one of the busier periods for schools’ recruitment, we wanted to update you on the work we are continuing to do in promoting working in Bradford Schools both to prospective candidates and to current students. In December, Kate Earnshaw was asked by Bradford for Teaching to speak at their webinar for ITT students at Leeds Trinity University with a theme of “Getting your First Job in Teaching”. Read the article here. We are hoping to speak at the next one too, we will keep you posted on our social media platforms.

Over what has been a strange, challenging yet inspiring year, Prospects Online have continued to advertise vacancies in and around Bradford. Our registered candidate numbers have grown to a huge 5,231 and applicant numbers remain high. Almost 4,000 online applications have been submitted (this doesn’t include direct apply posts).
