An important part of our ITT programme is supporting and preparing our PGCE trainees in finding their first teaching vacancy.

The Lion Alliance is made up of a large number of schools and we have many initiatives to help support you to get a job, but we cannot guarantee a job will be available at the end of the programme. The majority of our trainees secure jobs during the course before successfully completing it at the end of the year.

Recruitment Services

There are lots of great recruitment services that you can use to find teaching vacancies.

Lion Alliance Recruitment Initiatives

The Lion Alliance has many initiatives to help our PGCE trainees gain exposure and increase the chances of finding their first teaching post. We pride ourselves on being fully supportive by not only providing ITT support, but going far beyond that in providing CPD on recruitment; commonly delivered by current leadership members including headteachers, so that out trainees feel fully prepared in beginning their professional career in teaching.
