Hays Quarterly Report: Education
Global recruitment specialist Hays has released its quarterly report into recruitment trends for the April – June 2012 quarter.
High demand exists for early childhood teachers, Diploma candidates and candidates with experience working with children with additional needs.
“From January 2014, preschool and long day care centres with fewer than 25 children will need to have an early childhood teacher in attendance for some of the time the service is provided to children. Services with 25 to 29 children will need to have an early childhood teacher in attendance when the service is provided. In addition, fifty percent of staff will need a diploma qualification or be studying towards their qualification, while all coordinators will be required to have a diploma qualification.”
Short term contract workers are sought in secondary teaching and also executive candidates available for school leadership positions in 2013.
The north, east and city of Sydney is experiencing a severe shortage of qualified teaching staff in early years.
“In the middle of the year long-term temporary roles become more common due to the prevalence of maternity and long service leave. Many jobs are recruited on a temporary basis until the end of the year, when a permanent candidate is sourced for the start of the following year,” says the report.
