Where to look

Q. How do I find out which boroughs with "pools" have vacancies? And If I don't get accepted into a pool, can I apply direct to a school?

A. Many primary posts are advertised through pools operated by local authorities, but most secondary schools advertise vacancies in The TES. If you are rejected by a "pool", you can still apply for any posts in that authority you see advertised. I feel pools are unfair to those returning to the profession and teachers who need to move when their partner relocates.
