Initial interviews to join the pool are held at a central location with headteachers and senior leaders from across the city.

Being on the pool list is not a guarantee of a job, but information is sent to all local headteachers recruiting in 2018. Not being on the pool list does not limit the potential for being employed in a Leicester school, it may merely take a little longer.
