Since we launched Teach Portsmouth, we have attended events to promote the city as a place to live, learn and work as a teacher.
While the team cannot wait to see you all again soon, we felt it was time to tell Portsmouth's story online about those who matter most… our teachers.
The Teach Portsmouth news hub encourages our valued visitors, to imagine the city as a place to teach. It is not difficult to do, as hundreds of teachers do that every day.
Whether you want uplifting stories from schools or information on teaching, you have come to the right place.
We miss visiting recruitment fairs (hopefully that will not be forever). Until then, me, Justine and Sarah will be here to give the information you need.
Over time, we hope to grow our authors into ambassadors. Teachers from across the city will inspire you with real life accounts about starting out and flourishing in a Portsmouth school. Even if you are an established teacher, there will be something for you too.
A great example from the Department for Education campaign: 'every lesson shapes a life' that inspires people to consider training as a teacher.
We believe in the Department for Education's latest campaign 'every lesson shapes a 'life. Teaching is an enriching career choice, one with plenty of rewards. Not only do you inspire the next generation, you also help communities come together.
No day is the same as you help shape young people's dreams and ambitions. While the Teach Portsmouth news hub focuses on the waterfront city, our ambitions are country wide.
Having a source of localised news is super useful. From how to guides to community news - we promise to grow the blog over the coming weeks.
You might be asking "what is teaching really like?" or "how do I develop in teaching?" We hope to answer those questions and more.
