Portsmouth City Council will hold the event on Saturday, June 11 at 1000 Lakeside North Harbour, off Western Road, from 10am to 12.30pm.

On the day visitors can meet primary, secondary and special schools, plus post-16 providers.

Many of these will be seeking candidates to start in September 2016.

‘We’ve invested in our schools and are committed to raising the standard of education in the city.

‘Attracting high-calibre teachers to come and work in the city is an essential part of that vision.’
