These recruitment fairs are an essential event for experienced, new, returning or overseas qualified teachers or for anyone interested in teaching as a career.

Now into their fourth year, this hugely enjoyable event is FREE to attend. There will be a series of workshops running designed to inform, inspire and to support delegates looking to enter the profession or further their career. This is also a fantastic event for teachers looking to return to the profession.

In addition to the workshops you can meet informally face to face with Hertfordshire schools who have current job vacancies.  Please see the list of workshops below:
