Applying to the ECT Pool

** The Primary ECT Pool has now closed. **

Our annual ECT recruitment campaign has now closed.

Appointments by schools for September 2022 will continue to take place from shortlisted applications. No further applications will be accepted.

Thank you for your interest. If you applied to the Pool, a member of the team will be in contact shortly. 


Primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs).

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

This service, managed by the Schools’ Workforce Development Team, is accessible to all Hounslow primary schools. Headteachers are involved in all stages of the recruitment process.

Secondary schools in Hounslow can access our Secondary ECT Database. They also manage their own ECT recruitment so we advise applicants to also check individual secondary school and academy websites.
