New teacher recruitment service launched

As part of its initiative to try and reduce costs for publicly funded schools and trusts in England, the Department for Education has today launched Teaching Vacancies, a website where schools can advertise full, part time and job share teaching roles for free.

With more than 8,000 schools nationwide having already signed up to use the service and with over 1,600 adverts (at the time of writing) having already been posted, this is likely to be a popular forum to enable schools to attract candidates and it will no doubt rival the most popular (and expensive) education recruitment sites which currently exist.

With the potential to save schools hundreds, if not thousands of pounds in relation to a single recruitment, the Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, is calling on all schools to use the service and invest what high recruitment costs they would otherwise have spent into teaching instead.
