Annual Teacher Recruitment Fair Recap – Feb 2018

March 19th, 2018

More teachers than ever before are turning to Croydon for careers in teaching, as last month’s  teacher recruitment event showed.

The Croydon Headteacher Association (CHTA) hosted its fourth annual teacher recruitment fair on Saturday, 3 February at the Croydon Park Hotel.  The morning event highlighted a host of opportunities for new teachers, those interested in teaching and those already in the profession.

Around 48 schools, teacher training providers and trade union representatives exhibited, making it an ideal opportunity to hear about Croydon school vacancies and ways into teaching.

The response was fantastic with 190 attendees consisting, of NQTs, overseas trained teachers, and everything from teaching assistants to headteachers.

The Chair of CHTA, Mohammed Ramzan, said: “Ours is a wonderful borough in which to work, and the young people of Croydon deserve the very best teachers. This fair attracted colleagues from across the region and demonstrated the quality of the opportunity that a teaching career in Croydon can bring. The partnership work to put on this fair between Octavo and CHTA demonstrates our shared determination to deliver excellence in our schools and colleges.”

Octavo’s Recruitment package for Croydon Schools and Academies is now available to purchase via our portal. This contract gives access to a number of schools’ recruitment initiatives and allows schools to work together to promote Croydon as a borough where teachers can successfully start or develop their careers.
