Early career teaching jobs

 

Supply work is ideal for teachers who are at the beginning of their careers and are unsure on what path to take. You can trial different settings, year groups and schools to better understand what would suit you. It also offers you flexibility and enables you to work around your other commitments.

 

We have a range of roles for ECTs including permanent work placements, long-term supply and short-term supply. So regardless of whether you want to work for a few weeks, a term, a full year or on a permanent basis, we will find the right role for you.

 

For early career teachers seeking supply work, our consultants are ready to help you with your application process, offering support with interview preparation and CV writing to ensure a seamless experience. At Monarch Education, our teams are dedicated to placing you into the right schools by getting to know you and your preferences.

 

Opportunities for early career teachers

 

Many ECTs prefer to start with short term contracts so they can build their experience within local schools without any permanent commitments. Working within different schools allows the freedom to experience several classroom settings, pupil needs and culture, allowing them to select the schools they would prefer to work in on a more permanent basis.

 

Monarch can provide you with options:

 

  • Supply work. Supply work allows you to build on your experience within different school settings and to test the culture fit without a long-term commitment. This offers a flexible work arrangement as you can decide when and where to work.

 

  • long-term roles. Long-term roles allows you to gauge if the school is the right fit for you. These positions can count towards your induction and you can gain valuable references.
