Applying to Teaching Jobs with ApplyToEducation?

While schools and school boards can advertise available teaching positions by whichever method they choose, 92% of Ontario School Boards post all their jobs and only accept applications via ApplyToEducation.  This includes the Greater Essex County District School Board and Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board. 

The ApplyToEducation on-line application system allows teachers to search and apply for opportunities posted by over 5,500 schools in 49 countries.

Job seekers register and create their online application portfolio when they want to apply.  It costs $12 each year/per board to apply to advertised positions and/or to allow those boards to let them view their online application.  Applicants benefit by using one application to apply to multiple employers and job postings which saves them time and simplifies how they update their application throughout the hiring process. 

ApplyToEducation offers on-line help and training for new users, including guidelines on how to complete your on-line Portfolio as well as how to apply for jobs.  Additionally, ApplyToEducation will log all the postings that you’ve applied to. 

Employers use this site for recruiting as the system keeps applications on file for 12 months, and allows all applications to be stored safely. Recruiters can also search profiles of potential candidates  in the database. 

If you are interested in learning more about how to use ApplyToEducation as part of your job search, a webinar is scheduled for University of Windsor Bachelor of Education Students on Thursday, March 1 2018 at 3:00 pm EST.  Those interested can login from their own computer. To register, please click here: or you are welcome to watch from the Faculty of Education in room 2222.
