Peterborough schools launch city-wide campaign to recruit and develop more outstanding teachers

All primary and secondary schools from across Peterborough have joined forces to launch an innovative city-wide campaign to recruit and develop more outstanding teachers in the city.

The Teach Peterborough campaign draws attention to the many positive education developments in the city and establishes the city on a national level as a key place to build a career in teaching.

The city recently invested more than £330 million into rebuilding or renovating every primary and secondary school, and has seen more than 80 per cent of its schools rated as being good or outstanding. Peterborough is also one of fastest improving local education authorities in the country.

Peterborough is also one of the fastest growing cities in the country and is expected to

Julie Taylor, CEO and principal of Thomas Deacon Academy in Peterborough, said: “Peterborough is a fantastic place to build a career in teaching and live. However, as the city is small and neighbours locations such as London and Cambridge it can be easily overlooked.

“All schools in Peterborough work closely together to ensure every child in the city receives the high quality education they deserve no matter where they live. Teach Peterborough is testament to this partnership where all schools are working together to promote the city and its education vision to attract, recruit and develop outstanding teachers for the future.”

The Teach Peterborough campaign centres on a website which brings together everything a teacher needs to know about the city into one place. The website not only includes a comprehensive list of vacancies in the city, but also promotes the CPD courses and opportunities that are available, and provides key details of living in a city described as one of the fastest growing cities in the country.

Jonathan Lewis, service director for education, resources and corporate property at Peterborough City Council, added: “Education is one of Peterborough’s key success stories. Through our investment, all teachers are teaching in modern facilities and with access to state-of-the-art technology and high-speed internet.

“Peterborough is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, and many of our schools are expanding to meet this need. This means we require more outstanding teachers to fill the additional vacancies and to continue to drive improvements across the city.”
