Primary Teaching Posts in Oldham for September 2017

Salary Teacher Main scale £22,467- £33,160

Oldham is seeking expressions of interest from primary teachers interested in working in Oldham. This process is not restricted to just NQT's and we welcome expressions of interest from teachers returning to the profession.  Oldham is creating/establishing a "pool" which some schools may use to fill vacancies for September 2017.  Primary Headteachers will have access to information on applicants to this pool and may invite selected applicants for interview should they have a vacancy.

Oldham is an excellent place to start and develop a teaching career, because:

  • The borough offers highly successful school-led NQT induction programmes.
  • NQT induction is high quality, and quality assured to a high standard.
  • With five Teaching Schools in the borough the offer for teachers after their NQT year is second to none.
  • Schools collaborate closely across the borough providing further opportunities for professional and career development within an experienced and supportive team.
  • Good transport links mean that Oldham is just a short journey from both Manchester City Centre and countryside areas of outstanding natural beauty, whilst also boasting affordable housing.
  • Oldham is a borough of contrasts, with both rural and urban schools, and offers opportunities to develop a career in a variety of contexts.

The Primary Pool encourages and welcomes applications from teachers who would like to work in any type of Oldham primary school.

The Oldham Education Partnership is working closely with all schools to support their continued progress.  Councillors have set aside £1million over 4 years to support the work of the Partnership.  Further details can be found at
