Look for an agency that takes the time to get to know you as an individual and understands your needs and preferences in terms of school location, type, and position. Additionally, choose an agency that offers support throughout the recruitment process and beyond, including interview preparation, advice on salary negotiations, and ongoing professional development opportunities.

  • ​To prepare for a Key Stage 2 teaching interview, it is important to research the school and its values, as well as the curriculum and teaching methods used in Key Stage 2. It may also be helpful to prepare answers to common interview questions, such as how you handle challenging behaviour or how you differentiate your teaching for a range of abilities. Finally, make sure you have a good understanding of the Key Stage 2 curriculum and any changes or updates that may have been made recently. You can always check out our CPD page for all the tips and tricks to help you succeed.

  • To work as a Key Stage 2 teacher, you will need to hold a relevant teaching qualification such as a PGCE or equivalent. You will also need to have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and have completed your induction year. Most schools will require experience working with children in a classroom setting, ideally at the Key Stage 2 level. Additionally, some schools may require you to have experience or knowledge of specific areas such as special educational needs (SEN), behaviour management, or subject-specific knowledge. Don't worry if you don't have all the boxes ticked as we can help find you the right role for your experience!
