We work with London based ed-tech company Airsupply to match supply teaching staff with work in local schools without the need for costly agency middlemen.

The Airsupply system is designed to give schools and teachers greater control and transparency. Supply teachers and TAs who are matched to Waltham Forest Schools through Airsupply will also be eligible for permanent positions within the schools without the school needing to pay an expensive perm fee.

Newly qualified teachers

Waltham Forest is the perfect location for newly qualified teachers (NQTs). Located in zone 3 with fast transport links to central London and the west end on the Victoria line and overground, Walthamstow is easy to reach. A short walk from the tube station is a shopping centre, several supermarkets as well as Europe’s longest street market. The borough has easy accesses to the sports and leisure facilities at the Olympic Village in Stratford.

As a local authority we are constantly working to serve our culturally diverse community. As a NQT in the borough you can be part of that community whilst learning skills for your future education career.

Continuing professional development is available to all NQTs in Waltham Forest.
