Permanent Teaching Roles

What is classified as a permanent teaching role?

Not only can Protocol Education find you supply teaching jobs, short- and long-term roles, but we can also help Canadian teachers find permanent teaching roles. A permanent teaching position means that the school has hired you directly and you are no longer paid using Protocol Education's weekly timesheets (like you are when you are in a supply, short-term or long term role).

When you are in a permanent role the school pays you a salary which includes sickness cover and holiday pay. A permanent role lasts indefinitely and can start at any time, but generally starts at the beginning of a term. In some cases a Teacher will initially be in a long-term contract with a school and then after one or two terms be made permanent, once a school has established a relationship and need a permanent member of staff.

The UK school year:

Autumn (Fall) Term (starts September): If you are looking for a long-term or permanent role to start in September, you need to know that UK schools begin looking for suitable teachers in June and July. Placement can occur any time from after Easter through to the last few days of term (3rd week in July), though we do find the months of June and July the busiest in terms of placement. Tell us that you are interested in long-term/permanent and we'll be busy sending your CV to UK schools!

Spring Term (starts January): If you are looking for a long-term or permanent role to start in January, you need to know that UK schools begin looking for suitable teachers in November. Placement can occur any time from September through to the last few days of term (just before Christmas), though we do find the months of November and December the busiest in terms of placement. Tell us you are looking for long-term/permanent work, let us know! We will send your CV to UK schools.

Summer Term (starts April): If you are looking for a long-term or permanent role to start in April or May, you should know that UK schools begin looking for suitable teachers in April. Placement can occur any time from January through to the last few days of term (just before Easter), though we do find the months of February and March the busiest in terms of placement.
