About Us

Welcome to Teacher Today

- Who we are

Teacher Today is the leading website and newsletter dedicated to locum teachers and teaching assistants as well as head-teachers, school admin teams and support staff who employ and support locum teachers.

- What we do

We produce content for our daily website and fortnightly newsletter which includes:

    News
    Interviews
    Topical features and analysis
    Career advice
    Guest articles
    Jobs - all of which are relevant to the locum education market.

- Why it’s important to you

Teacher Today know teachers are time poor. You need to be up-to-date with the latest policy initiatives and government announcements but don’t have the time to sift through weighty documents. That’s where we come in. We will bring you all the latest education news and analysis on the website. And if you don’t have time to log on, we will be sending out a fortnightly newsletter with the highlights.

We also split TeacherToday into three different sections aimed at locum teachers, locum teaching assistants and head-teachers/school admin teams. All the content in these sections is relevant to the professional group meaning you do not have to scroll through information that is not relevant to you and your job.
