Leicestershire is a large Local Authority (LA) in the East Midlands, with administrative headquarters at County Hall, Glenfield, approximately 3 miles from Leicester City Centre. The LA has 287 schools and colleges, ranging from small village Primaries with 50 or fewer pupils, to large Community Colleges with almost 2000 students.
On average we employ around 300 Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) per year, and we greatly value the innovative ideas and enthusiasm that NQTs contribute, offering in return a programme of support to provide the best possible start to a career in teaching.
In Leicestershire our thinking and planning are both well advanced in addressing the “Every Child Matters” agenda. We are actively committed to the deliver of a seamless, consistent and effective solution to children’s education and social welfare needs in a complex and changing world.
