11/4/14 – TESConnect is the premier search engine for UK and international K-12 education positions. Traditionally UK schools have not employed librarians however in recent years there has been a recognition of the importance of this position and thus there has been a rise in positions, particularly those in overseas schools who typically have larger budgets and some of which follow the IB curriculum which emphasizes the library as a key component in the learning process.
The TES site however is not particularly user-friendly so I ended up writing to TES to see if there was an easier way to locate library positions. Here it how to do it:
1. Go to the TESConnect site.
2. Click on JOBS.
3. In the Non-Teaching Column click on Facilities.
4. Click on Position on the list on the left and you will see Librarian followed by the number of listings and whether the positions are UK or international. (Currently there are no international positions but it is very early in the season.)
You can also set up an e-mail alert by clicking on Save search & create alert in the upper right hand corner. You will need to create an account to do this.
