Teaching as a rewarding and exciting profession. Portsmouth is a progressive and interesting place to teach and attracts teachers from a variety of backgrounds. There are multiple routes into teaching and we will help you navigate these. Don't just teach, teach Portsmouth!
If you missed our webinar on special education needs and/or disabilities, a recording is available to watch back. Hear from three professionals who work with children and young people about the type of roles you could experience in primary, secondary and specialist settings.
Host Sarah Christopher, Portsmouth Education Partnership and inclusion manager at Portsmouth City Council spoke to contributors, Luci Johnson, Fran Marshman and Cathy Seal during the webinar.
Teach Portsmouth invited schools and colleges in the city to celebrate the achievements of their staff during the pandemic. Senior colleagues were asked to share a photo or video on social media to showcase their successes.
The campaign was introduced as a way to showcase everyone's efforts as we know it isn’t possible to recognise all staff in the Teach Portsmouth Awards Live. You can now see a selection of schools and colleges who took part in the campaign using the hashtag #TeachPortsmouthCelebrates.
"Teachers have played an important role in supporting children and young people in the city during the pandemic. Despite many students learning from home, schools never closed, supporting keyworker children in the classroom over the last 18 months.
"The new campaign celebrates the amazing work that has gone on by school and college staff in the city. Teach Portsmouth are asking senior leaders to pause and consider how they can recognise their staff through a series of celebratory events."
"We appreciate how hard everyone has worked this year. Teach Portsmouth's latest campaign gives everyone the chance to recognise their staff before the main awards ceremony on Thursday 8 July.
"It's impossible to showcase everyone's talents in The Teach Portsmouth Awards - so we felt it was important for colleagues to share their successes with the whole community."
