Applying to the ECT Pool

Are you a PGCE, BA (hons) Education student (or equivalent) and graduating with UK Primary Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)?

Great – you’re in exactly the right place to look for your first teaching position, complete your Induction Year and kick start your career.

Primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs).

The majority of primary first teaching appointments in Hounslow schools are made through our Primary ECT Pool (formerly known as the NQT Pool). 

This service, managed by the Schools’ Workforce Development Team, is accessible to all Hounslow primary schools. Headteachers are involved in all stages of the recruitment process.

Secondary schools in Hounslow can access our Secondary ECT Database. They also manage their own ECT recruitment so we advise applicants to also check individual secondary school and academy websites.
