can anyone give me some information on the hiring of late intake for public schools? i have seen some posts and spoken with recruiters about a late intake in march for public schools - but i'm just wondering the specifics of it. does this fill positions of teachers who dropped out last minute? or are they schools that just didn't fill for one reason or another? any information would be greatly appreciated, as always Smile

Your outlook is skewed. Jobs are available year round. Instead of "late intake" it's an influx of monkey jobs which settle in March and less in September.

If you want to be one of the herd, you might be "late". If you want a decent job, you need to CRITICALLY evaluate contracts, talk with schools, and forget recruiters as your surrogate parent holding your hand while landing a wonderful English teaching job.

This goes on year round. You are never late. I had a wonderful public school job and started in the summer.

Oh, and location is another factor. Consider that aspect as well.

My current PS job and many of my friends started in April. Almost all if not all of us have good jobs.

The main recruiting drives by EPIK/GEPIK assign teachers to schools on sort of a "lottery".

If schools don't "get a teacher" assigned to them from one of the main programs AND if they feel the need for a foreign NET then they call their favorite recruiter and "order one".

These are all one-off jobs but they still typically use either the GEPIK or EPIK contracts. They also still fall under the jurisdiction of the Provincial Office of Education (POE) even though they were recruited privately.
