Catholic Teachers Meeting: Tuesday 15th January 2019

Are You A Catholic Teacher But Not Teaching In A Catholic School? Your Diocese Needs You!

The Department for Education wants to recruit as many Catholic teachers to its schools as possible, and is aware that across the Diocese there are a number of Catholic teachers who are not currently or have never worked in a Catholic school. Sometimes making the transition back to Catholic education can be perceived as being difficult and therefore we would like to offer support to those teachers who are considering returning to the Catholic sector or would like more information on the appointment process in our schools.

We are holding an informal session on Tuesday 15th January 2019 at Ellesmere Port Catholic High School, Capenhurst Lane, Ellesmere Port, CH65 7AQ from 6 – 7.30 pm. If you would like to attend or want further information about returning to Catholic education, please e-mail Sue Jenkinson on sue.jenkinson@dioceseofshrewsbury.org
