Working

From newly qualified teachers through to school leaders, Hertfordshire is a hub for teachers and an ideal county in which to build your career. Hertfordshire prides itself on attracting exceptional teachers to inspire our students, supporting both to the highest level.

If you are searching for the next step, or maybe the first step in your teaching career, Hertfordshire is well placed to offer teachers a broad scope of challenges and rewards. Whether this lies in a large urban secondary school or a more serene village primary, Hertfordshire provides a choice of career in a supportive, professional, attractive environment. Approximately 184,500 children are educated in the county's network of over 520 schools, which provides plenty of opportunity for you to move around and share your enthusiasm with a number of age groups and in a variety of settings.

If you choose to teach in Hertfordshire, Herts for Learning’s comprehensive programme of training courses will be available to you. These include induction conferences for NQTs, to help deal with the challenges of the first years; training for leaders on how to prepare for the new curriculum; and everything in between, including subject-specific training.

Relocating to work in a Hertfordshire school entitles you to a range of flexible benefits to enhance the remuneration package offered, including childcare vouchers; independent financial advice; discounts on health care, health and fitness centres and travel; and much more. It is entirely up to you which, if any, of the benefits you choose to take advantage of.

If you are passionate about teaching, committed to delivering education excellence and ready for a new challenge, make Hertfordshire your first choice for a rewarding career.
