Finding a teaching job that suits your style

With teaching, it is not only important that you find a job that fits in with what you are looking for but also that you find a school that does. Many schools have quite a lot of say over how they are run and therefore you might find that the policies and procedures at one school differ quite drastically from another.

When looking to apply for a teaching job be sure to read all the recent Ofsted reports that are available and have a good look through their website and recent news letters. You will often be able to find a leaflet of the schools policies and procedures online which will give you the opportunity to read through before deciding whether to apply for the job.

If you are get to the stage where you are invited in for an interview, make a note of any questions that you would like to ask them that are important to you. It may be their policy on behaviour or bulling or if he school sends out homework and how often? This can then allow you some thinking time before you have to accept a position to ensure that it is right for you.
