How does the Cambridgeshire Primary NQT Pool System work?

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018 NQT Pool. Information on this page is for your reference only.

Information for schools and applicants:

  • All applications are for September positions.
  • Subject to your application meeting our person specification, and there being interview availability, we will offer you a Pool interview.
  • Interviews will take place week beginning 12th March 2018 and will be with a panel of at least two Headteachers. You may be asked to complete some additional tasks at this time.
  • Should this interview be successful, you will be accepted into the Pool and asked to tell us more about your ideal position.
  • You will then be invited to visit interested schools so that you can decide whether you would like to engage in a conversation with them about employment.
  • Please note that acceptance into the Pool is not a guarantee of employment.
  • Any offer of employment will be made by the school, not the Local Authority.

To apply please refer to our application documents found on this page and submit your application form to Teachincambrigeshire@gmail.com with 'NQT Pool application' in the subject line. 


For You: one application form and one formal interview, after which your details will be circulated to all primary schools in Cambridgeshire who have a vacancy. You will then have the opportunity to choose which schools to visit and/or find out more about.

For Schools: access to a pool of well qualified staff who have been through a robust vetting procedure, meaning that you can focus on what is important for your school.
