OTSA National Teacher Recruitment Fair


Virtual Recruitment and Networking Event

Thursday 4th March 2021

4pm to 7pm

This online recruitment and networking event is for teachers considering applying for a post in nursery, primary, secondary or special schools in the UK. The event is online, so you can take part from anywhere in the world!

This page is for teachers to book a place - Schools please use this page to book your virtual stand.

The event will be an opportunity for you to meet with school senior leaders to discuss current and future possible employment opportunities. Bear in mind that schools may not know their full employment needs at the time of the event. However this is an opportunity to find out about more about the schools and to introduce yourself to the leadership teams in those schools, so that when a suitable vacancy does arise you are able to apply with confidence.

We know that schools have employed many teachers they first met at our recruitment fairs.

How Will it Work?

The event will be hosted using Zoom, Teams and Google Meet. Ahead of the event, we will provide you with a list of schools taking part, a link to the recruitment page on their website and an online meeting link for that school. You will read through this information, decide which schools you are interested in and use the links to ‘visit’ those schools.

After selecting a link, you will arrive in a virtual waiting room before being admitted to the school’s meeting room. Here you will have the opportunity to speak with members of the leadership team and/or the option of a one-to-one conversation in a breakout room.

Please note that there are a limited number of tickets for this event, so if your circumstances change and you no longer wish to attend please cancel your place so that we can offer it to someone else.

More detailed instructions will be provided following registration for this event.
