Introducing the Teacherfolio team
A Deputy Head Teacher with 17 years of experience in the Primary Sector. In addition to the senior leadership role, Liz is working with schools to help them recruit better with digital media.
John is a senior leader with over 12 years experience of working in Primary and Secondary Schools. He has experienced both sides of the recruitment process: the candidate applying for a teaching post and the senior leader recruiting staff to join the school team. It was this experience and discussions with school leaders across the UK that led to the creation of Teacherfolio.
Using my knowledge and experience in EdTech to build the right product to meet school needs.
Helping to make teacher recruitment an enjoyable, easy and fun experience through digital design.
Making sure the Teacherfolio team reaches out to and helps as many schools across the country as possible.
Why school leaders love using Teacherfolio
“Every time I appoint I will use this process to shortlist – at this time it was invaluable when I couldn’t see the candidates teach due to Covid. In future it will be invaluable as a time saving and shortlisting tool. it was so easy to see who would be the right fit for us from the videos and then our final shortlist for interview was much stronger and was really purposeful time wise. The portfolio team were so helpful too!”
Kelly Armstrong, Head Teacher, Field Court Junior Academy, Gloucestershire
“Teacherfolio have allowed us to recruit and fill a job vacancy without being at work. We have received high quality videos and written responses from potential candidates. It is safe and secure as a unique password is sent out. Thank you.”

exciting added dimension.”
