Are you looking to take the first steps of your teaching career? Would you like to work in an area that’s genuinely going places?

The London Borough of Hounslow is considered one of the best places to live, learn and grow. With over 95% of school’s rated Good or Outstanding, and students receiving higher than national average GCSE results, Hounslow is clearly a place where education thrives.

However, it’s not just a place with great results, Hounslow has a diverse community – something which is celebrated in schools across the borough. Children are supported and encouraged, with teaching that considers each child’s individual needs and circumstances. Hounslow’s teachers embrace the challenges and opportunities that social, economic and ethnic diversity bring and are passionate about every child’s chance to learn and grow.

As an NQT, choosing your first school can be a daunting prospect, surrounded by confusion. You may be thinking “which school is right for me?” “How do I know I’ve made the right choice?”. Hounslow believes in supporting newly qualified teachers and ensuring the best possible start to their careers. Their annual Primary NQT recruitment campaign matches the best Primary ITT students with great schools seeking NQT’s.
