Primary and early years first teaching posts 

You can apply to the central pool database for posts suitable for NQTs starting in September. Successful applications will be made available to schools in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster, according to your preferences.

Newly qualified teachers or teachers due to qualify with QTS this academic year are invited to apply to the pool which will close at 5pm on the 19 February. Applications which meet the selection criteria will be shortlisted and made available to schools who will then invite suitable candidates for interview according to the school’s requirements.
