We love Kent, so we’re really happy to support a campaign to attract teachers to living and teaching in Kent. Kent is the Garden of England – surrounded by the beautiful nature, but at the same time you can easily reach London and the continent. From historic Rye to shopping in busy Ashford, Kent has lot to offer. Now, there are opportunities for teachers looking for a better work/life balance, with a variety of career opportunities to choose from and a support of the best teaching professionals. Kent County Council Schools is committed to innovatively attracting new, experienced and talented teachers to the 600+ schools. It is offering teachers the challenge and rewards they are looking for. I’m fascinated to see that they are doing this through a Facebook competition! Whether you want to work in an energetic urban secondary school or a more serene coastal village primary, whether you are an experienced teacher or a new recruit, the competition asks you to look at how life could be in Kent. This competition aims to encourage you to take a look at Kent as at a lifestyle opportunity, not just a place for a new job. We moved to the south east coast a few years back, and it has certainly led to a better life for us. To enter, you need to submit a story on what you think your life could be like if you lived in Kent, for a chance to win a weekend with all expenses paid in Kent. The stories will be shortlisted and introduced to a public to vote for the favourite one. The story that receives the most votes will win. This competition gives you a chance to visualise not just working but living in Kent. It challenges you to consider and summarise what you ‘ideal’ lifestyle would be like and how relocating to Kent and working in one of the most diverse counties in the UK, educationally and personally, you could make My Perfect Kent Day your reality.
