For many years we have been helping Early Career Teachers (formerly known as NQTs) begin their careers in our schools.

Our annual Primary ECT Recruitment selects the best prepared students for schools who are thinking of appointing an Early Career Teacher (ECT).

Secondary ECTs are currently able to find posts via our vacancies page.

Applying to the ECT Pool

The majority of primary first teaching appointments in Hounslow schools are made through our Primary ECT Pool (formerly known as the NQT Pool). 

For September 2024 appointments, our general Teaching Talent Pool will is now open!
