Are you looking to Return to Teaching?

The Oxfordshire Strategic Schools Partnership Board (SSPB) wants to support those who wish to return to the classroom after a career break or maternity/paternity leave.


As a county, we have much to offer those who are looking for; some classroom experience, help to update their classroom practice, support in job hunting or advice on interviewing.


Below are a number of documents that we hope will provide all the necessary information to secure a job in Oxfordshire. There are a number of documents covering various areas of support, including:-

  1. Gaining Experience 
  2. Job Hunting
  3. Application Management
  4. Preparing for the Interview Day
    1. Research the school
    2. Preparing for a lesson
    3. Other activities/tasks you may be asked to do 
    4. The actual interview
    5. Common interview questions
  5. The Day of the Interview

There is a full document with all sections included or bite-size individual documents - we hope they are useful!
