#SLTeachMeet Teacher Recruitment

Reading Time: 1 minute

This is my full presentation discussed on 14th May 2013 at #SLTeachMeet (2) in London. The salubrious surroundings of The Russell Hotel were provided to us by @OptimusEd. A huge thank you to Russell at Optimus.

What I decided to present to the audience, focused on ‘teacher recruitment issues’ across the UK, and the job-hunting process. Essentially, this presentation is a proposal to review the recruitment process and allow schools and teachers to headhunt their own employment, through free job-advertisements as a school, or job-hunting as a teacher using @MyEdHunt (Twitter) as a platform…

In 2010, Ross Morrison McGill founded @TeacherToolkit from a simple Twitter account in which he rapidly became the 'most followed teacher on social media in the UK'. In 2015, he was nominated for '500 Most Influential People in Britain' in The Sunday Times as one of the most influential in the field of education - he remains the only classroom teacher to feature to this day ... Sharing online as @TeacherToolkit, he rebuilt this website (c2008) into what you are now reading, as one of the 'most influential blogs on education in the UK', winning the number one spot at the UK Blog Awards (2018). Today, he is currently a PGCE tutor and is researching 'social media and its influence on education policy' for his EdD at Cambridge University. In 1993, he started teaching and is an experienced school leader working in some of the toughest schools in London. He is also a former Teaching Awards winner for 'Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School, London' (2004) and has written several books on teaching (2013-2018). Read more...
