Inspire and be inspired

Want to inspire the next generation? Working with children and young people in Buckinghamshire's schools is a great place to light up your own future too. Home to some of the top-performing schools in the UK, but also with plenty of challenges, we have lots to offer great teachers, whether you're new to the classroom or have years of experience under your belt.

We have teaching opportunities at every level from trainee positions to leadership roles. Committed to providing a high-quality education for all children and young people, our selective secondary system means most Buckinghamshire pupils take a transfer test in their final year of primary school and then progress to either a grammar or secondary school. You can choose to teach in a range of settings, from small, rural primary schools through to large, multi-form entry schools in our town centres.
