Newly qualified and supply teacher services


We operate newly qualified and primary school supply teacher pools to help you find work in our schools.

Newly qualified teachers (NQTs)

Each school year, we operate a teaching pool to help primary and secondary schools recruit newly-qualified teachers throughout the year. The NQT pool closed for applications on 27 February 2017.

Supply teacher register (primary only)

Join our primary school supply teacher register which helps primary schools recruit teachers to cover short term absences or staff shortages. This is available for both experienced and newly qualified teachers. 

Apply for the supply teacher register

Contact our Durham Supply Teacher Partnership, details in the contact us section, for an application pack. 

Looking for secondary school supply teacher work?

Because secondary school teaching is organised around subject areas we do not run a secondary school supply pool. Instead you should contact one of the independent agencies in the area.

Latest teaching vacancies

Permanent teaching posts are advertised on our current job vacancies and apprenticeships.page.
