Talent Bank

Talent Bank

The Bradford Teaching Talent Bank is for newly qualified or recently qualified teachers who want to work in a Bradford primary school.

It enables you to meet headteachers and senior leaders before formal job application processes begin.  It is also a great way to practice your job application and interview technique with real school leaders.

This is how it works.

Applicants will be interviewed by a panel of Bradford primary headteachers or senior leaders. Every applicant will receive feedback on their application and interview technique to help them improve.

Successful applicants will be asked to join our Talent Bank. Schools with teaching posts available contact the bank and receive details of suitable candidates.  Schools contact candidates and invite them to visit their school.  Usual open recruitment processes are then followed.

The Talent Bank does not employ candidates, nor can it guarantee a post in a Bradford school. But we can share your details with recruiting schools and help you to be your best at interview.
