A new service for school facing an Ofsted inspection has been launched by TeachVac. Entitled TeachSted. www.teachsted.com offers schools, although at present only secondary schools, the opportunity to receive a report about vacancies in the school’s locality or across the local authority they are located within for key curriculum subjects when they are faced with an Ofsted inspection. The report will help schools show they are aware of any recruitment issues locally and provide the evidence about recruitment in the local area when faced with questions about recruitment during an inspection.
Schools can pre-register for the service for a small fee. This means when a report is requested it can be sent to the school within an hour of the request being received. There is a fee for the generation of the report. Any further reports are issued at a lower cost to the school. Schools not pre-registering may have to wait a little longer for their report to be created.
A sample report is shown below and the report issued to a school is up to date for the current year to the end of the previous working day.
Local Authority: Somewhere – could also be for a specified distance around a school rather than a local authority
Below are the number of adverts found by TeachSted in the local authority stated above.
