Stevenage will be top of the form for jobs in education on Saturday as schools set out their stall at a recruitment fair.

Herts for Learning, the UK’s largest not for profit schools company which is based in the town, is hosting the Teach in Herts Teacher Recruitment Fair at the Hertfordshire Development Centre at Robertson House in Six Hills Way.

The free event, from 10am to 4pm, offers the chance to talk over teaching opportunities at schools across the county, and there will also be a series of workshops and an individual advice surgery.

Herts For Learning managing director Jan Paine said: “There is a widely recognised and increasing shortage of teachers in the UK.

“To support Herts schools, we are delighted to be hosting the fair and raising the profile of a rewarding teaching career in the county.

“Our schools and settings are committed to providing high levels of education for all children, but to achieve this, we need to continue to recruit exceptional and enthusiastic teachers.

“If you are a current, past or new teacher, or considering a career change to teaching, the fair is an essential event for you.”
