Teaching Personnel and Hexham & Newcastle Diocese have been working in a formal partnership since February 2015. The partnership has a mutual aim of raising the standards of temporary education staff working in Catholic schools in the Newcastle area. Teaching Personnel has three local branches in the North East covering Newcastle, Durham, Northumberland, South & North Tyneside, Gateshead, Darlington, Stockton, Hartlepool and Sunderland. With a large team of sector specialist Recruitment Consultants from the local areas and a database of over 14,000 teachers and learning support staff in the North East, Teaching Personnel is well equipped to satisfy the staffing needs of schools across the Diocese.
In the pursuit of continuous improvement, the partnership involves a number of CPD elements with collaborations between St Cuthberts High School, Newcastle, Leeds Trinity University and external provides such as Team-Teach and Ruth Miskin.
Hexham and Newcastle Diocese stretch from the Scottish Border to the River Tees and there are 162 Catholic schools spread over 10 Local Authorities. These schools have a total population of just under 53,000 pupils.
If you are looking to make a difference to the lives of young people in your local community and are interested in working in Catholic schools as a classroom teacher or learning support assistant, please contact our Newcastle office.
