DfE Returners to Teaching Pilot Project May 2018

We have been selected again as a Lead School for this short pilot project for those wishing to return to teaching following a break for caring responsibilities.

Returners who have registered with the Return to Teaching advisors are matched with EBacc vacancies in our area

The support package includes:

  • bursaries for acclimatisation periods in school before paid employment begins.

  • employment in schools that understand the needs of returning teachers.

  • support for career progression with funding available for national professional qualifications and continuous professional development vouchers.

  • develop your networks – with access to a range of valuable professional bodies.

To register your interest go to www.education.gov.uk/caring-return.

ELIGIBILITY

Eligible returners must:

  • have a start date between 1 September 2018 and 15 January 2019

  • be returning from a career break (there is no maximum or minimum period) the primary purpose of which was to care for others

  • apply for vacancies as normal but flag up either in a covering letter or on the application form that you have come through the RTT project. This will explain the gaps in your teaching history

  • be returning to teach an EBacc subject (if teaching more than one subject, at least 50% of the teaching time must be in an EBacc subject)

  • have previous experience of teaching in an English state school.

Eligible returners must not:

  • already be under contract with any school as a teacher

  • be returning from a statutory period of maternity, paternity or shared parental leave

  • be returning from a career break where the primary purpose was not to care for others.

Eligible returners may:

  • be working in a school in a role other than that of a teacher

  • have previously worked as a teacher in the employing school

  • have been employed other than as a teacher during their career break; as long as the primary reason for leaving teaching was to care for others.
