We published this resource to help understand the requirements for becoming a teacher which goes into more details about the routes into teaching.

The demand for qualified teaching staff is increasing year on year. Simply put, as the population increases and experienced staff leave or retire, the number of vacancies increases. We have a significant number of jobs advertised in the Hull and East Riding which you can view below.

You may have seen reports in the media regarding teacher workload, and yes, teachers do put in a lot of time planning, delivering and assessing their lessons. The DFE has launched a plan for tackling teacher workload, and teaching unions are actively supporting their members to keep workloads manageable.

All school staff are required to undergo a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service. A criminal conviction will not automatically disqualify you from getting a teaching job, and each case will be assessed individually. However, serious crimes involving violence, sexual assault or offences against children are likely to result in a candidate being deemed as unsuitable to teach.

If you are concerned, it may be worth contacting a teaching union to seek their advice.
