London Borough of Croydon

There are a number of initiatives that the Croydon Head Teachers Association (CHTA) have introduced to ensure that Croydon is a destination of choice:

1. Annual Teacher Recruitment Fair

Date:            February 2018
Venue:          Central Croydon

The fair is aimed at those interested in getting into teaching (whether you are a college or university student or looking for a career change), NQTs, and qualified teachers relocating to the area.  This event:

  • is Free to attend
  • Hosts inspiring workshops to support the progression of your teaching career
  • Introduces you to representatives from Croydon’s educational sectors available to discuss your current and future teaching opportunities

To secure your place, email our Teacher Recruitment service at:

2. Website dedicated to advertising Croydon schools’ jobs

This website is owned and operated by Croydon’s Headteachers – giving applicants direct access to school jobs in the borough without any ‘middle men’.  If you want to teach in Croydon or work in a Croydon school, please register on our dedicated site for job alerts.

3. Croydon’s Teaching Pool

The pool, set up for Croydon schools and academies, is an easily accessible database for the appointment of both experienced primary and secondary teachers and newly qualified teachers. Throughout the process, conducted by both Octavo Partnership and Croydon partners, we will shortlist and interview candidates for the pool, sharing successful applicants’ details with our schools and academies.

If you are interested in applying for Croydon’s pool, please email:
