Leading local recruiters and education service providers Teaching Force and Protocol are teaming up to hold another of their popular education jobs fairs at The Point in West Bridgford on the 29th August from 10am-4pm.
This event is being run at a time when the media and politicians continue to argue about the teacher crisis. The innovative recruiter claims they are taking a positive step to support the schools, education providers and candidates they work with, and that as the sector evolves they are continuing to react, improving and innovating their service for both their candidates and clients.
As well as matching talented candidates with the best vacancies in the sector, Protocol and Teaching Force provide exclusive, free and topical CPD to all their candidates, both through their exclusive online portals and through partnerships with providers in the sector. This means they can support education professionals at every level – whether they are newly qualified, have extensive teaching experience, or are looking to transfer their skills to education.
Perfect for qualified teachers, lecturers and assessors, as well as industry professionals looking to make the move to education, the event is free to attend and offers the opportunity to meet with representatives from the leading recruitment group – allowing attendees to find out more about teaching and lecturing opportunities across the East Midlands and beyond.
The event will run as a free drop-in session and education professionals will have the opportunity to access CV support, one to one advice, and instant job search.
Ian Sackree, CEO of the Protocol Group of companies commented: “Working with education providers across the East Midlands and beyond, we have some fantastic opportunities available in the sector and we are keen to spot local talent to recruit the brightest and best. By bringing both our brands together for this event we are offering educational professionals a one stop shop for progressing their teaching career. If you are considering getting into teaching or lecturing or are looking for a change of environment, I would encourage you to pop along.”
Debbie Mell, Head of Teaching Force added “It’s no secret that there is national teacher shortage, we’ve all seen the ads on TV. We work hard every day on attracting the best of the best locally and work with lots of universities and colleges helping prepare student teachers for their future careers. But that’s the long game – what about now?
We believe that the best way to address this issue is to better utilise cover and contract staff who tend to be highly experienced and eager as well as look to make lasting appointments through a quality and rigorous recruitment process – this is where agencies are cost effective!”
Everyone attending the event will receive a welcome pack and free refreshments will also be available throughout the day.
