History Teachers – Vacancies in England and Wales

As New Directions Education grows, it is important to recognise how the past has shaped our journey. We are a successful agency who have placed talented history teachers in long and short-term jobs since 1999.

A major part of that success is the candidates that have been recruited, and in particular our supply of qualified history teachers to schools across the UK.

Recent findings…

Ofsted published a report in March 2011 called ‘History for All’. The report concentrated on history in English schools 2007/10. There were some key findings, including:

  • In the schools visited history was generally a popular and successful subject, which many pupils enjoyed. Achievement was good or outstanding in 63 of the 83 primary schools and 59 of the 83 secondary schools visited.
  • History was successful in most of the secondary schools visited because it was well taught, notably in examination classes at GCSE and A level. The large majority of these history teachers were very well-qualified. In the large majority of the schools visited, the quality of the provision also reflected the strong leadership of the history departments.
