Teach in Cambridgeshire: Recruitment & Retention Package

Teach in Cambridgeshire

In 2015, a group of Cambridgeshire cross-phase Headteachers, working with the Local Authority, came together to offer solutions and recommendations on how to alleviate the recruitment challenges facing Cambridgeshire schools. This is an inclusive group that is open to all schools in Cambridgeshire: academy, maintained or free school. It operates as a collective, facilitated by the LA Senior Adviser for Curriculum, Teaching and Leadership.

Our Mission Statement:

The group's aim is to stimulate and maintain the recruitment and retention of high quality teachers in Cambridgeshire schools.

Below are the steering group meeting notes. Read them to find out what we are doing and our prioirities.

Recruit with us

Our website now allows schools, signed up to our recruitment package, to advertise and manage their own vacancies. Signed up schools have their own profile and log-in for our site where they can upload as many vacancies as they like, at any level, throughout their contract year. During the first month of trialling the vacancies section we had over 500 hits on our vacancies page and reached the number one spot on search engines for ‘teaching jobs in Cambridgeshire’ and ‘teacher training routes in Cambridgeshire’. We also use our website to promote Cambridgeshire as a great place to live and work.
