More about the Candidate Lounge

The candidate lounge allows you to keep us updated on when you're available for work, check your time sheets and easily update your details anytime you like. You will be emailed log in details for the Candidate Lounge once you have registered with Career Teachers.

Please note that if you have a current log-in for the Timesheet portal, this is still valid and can also be used to log into the Candidate Lounge.

Diary - Let us know when you're available for work

Your online diary will show you where you have been booked for work and the dates you are available for work. If you are unavailable due to holiday etc. you can update your own diary. If you are unable to attend a booking that has already been confirmed, you will need to call the office and speak to your consultant.

Update your contact details

You are able to update your contact details (phone numbers/address etc.). Once saved, these will automatically be updated on our internal database.

You are also able to tell us what type of work you are looking for if your preferences have changed.

Update your CV

Keeping your CV up to date is really important to demonstrate to schools your experience, knowledge and will increase your chances of being shortlisted for interviews.

When should you update your CV?

When you complete a position or a long-term placement, it is a good idea to update your CV giving an outline of year groups/key stages you worked with and an overview of responsibilities. Having an up-to-date CV is essential if you are looking for a long-term or permanent position.

Within the candidate lounge simply select ‘update CV’ and upload the latest version (please upload a word doc.). This will be automatically added to your Career Teachers database file.

Online Timesheets

Online timesheets will be automatically created at the end of each week for all the schools you have worked in. 

Schools will access the portal directly on a Friday to approve your online timesheet for that week. You are able to access the portal at any time, via the link in the email alert, through the Career Teachers website.

Please call 0800 141 3387 if you have any questions concerning the Candidate Lounge.
