Start your new job back at school

Schools in West Sussex offer more than just opportunities to teach.

Two school recruitment fairs are offering an opportunity for people seeking a new challenge the chance to discover more about the wide variety of employed roles available in schools and education, in addition to opportunities to train to teach. The fairs are being hosted by West Sussex County Council.

As well as teaching, roles in schools include, teaching assistant, learning mentor, bursar, apprentice, premises manager, technician, governing body clerk and governor.

Recruitment fairs are:

• Saturday 3 February from 10am-2pm at the Premier Lounge at Fontwell Park Racecourse, BN18 0SX
• Saturday 24 February from 10am-2pm at Ifield Community College, Crawley, RH11 0DB

Schools, teacher training organisations, apprenticeship providers and other education service teams will be at the fairs on both dates. They will all be on hand to answer questions and provide additional information on, not only entry into the wide range of education roles available in schools, but to explain the possibilities of developing careers in education for life.

Richard Burrett, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “These fairs are an excellent way to find out more about the wide range of roles available in schools and meet potential employers to take that first step in embarking on a whole new career direction. I’d encourage anyone interested in teaching to attend as well as anyone who is thinking about how the skills they have might benefit schools in other roles.”
