As a Trainee teacher coming towards the end of your training, you may already be actively applying for positions and we wish you every success with this. However what options are available should you not secure that desired position immediately? One such option would be to register with the Lancashire Teaching Agency. Lancashire LA, Reed Education and Lancashire Professional Development Service (LPDS) operate this service, providing employment opportunities in Lancashire schools for ECTs;  opportunities that often open the door to contractual employment.

We support schools with their recruitment for permanent, fixed term and long term supply cover roles.

The benefits of the service to ECTs include: -

  • A structured programme of Continuous Professional Development linked to individual needs.
  • Payment in accordance with the Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document and access to the Teachers' Pension scheme for long term positions
  • Job search skills and career planning to enable teachers to move into contractual employment.
  • A personal Consultant who will work closely with you to better understand your employment requirements.
  • No registration fees.

    Finally, many schools have previously used ECTs for supply positions during the summer term once a students’ final practice is completed.

    Should you be interested in opportunities from May – Summer or in September or require further information about the workshops please call on 01772 200845 (Preston) and 01524 843347 (Lancaster).
