1. Applying for Newly Qualified Teacher positions

If you hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), but have not yet completed Induction, or anticipate being awarded QTS before September 2019, we would welcome an application from you to our NQT Pool.

More information about making your application can be found on the TeachLambeth website

2. Successful Applications

If your application is accepted into the NQT Pool, all relevant Lambeth schools will be able to view your application.

If a school then has a vacancy for which they would consider an NQT, they will look at all relevant Pool applications for their position, and shortlist and invite their choice of candidates in for a visit and/or interview.

Your application will be visible to all relevant schools for all relevant vacancies - therefore, it may be the case that you hear from a second school before you've been to another school for a visit/interview.

Please close your application on the TeachLambeth website if you secure a position, either in Lambeth or elsewhere - it will save schools considering unnecessary applications, and will stop you receiving unnecessary communication from schools.

3. Other ways to find a position in Lambeth

As well as using the NQT Pool or the TeachLambeth website, some schools may also advertise vacant posts which are suitable for NQTs - particularly whilst the NQT Pool is establishing itself.

These advertisements will appear in the Times Educational Supplement and on the TES website.

If you are interested in an advertised vacancy, you should apply directly to the school.
