iday week structure

Your trip to England will be jam-packed with interviews and taster days, but we’re with you at every moment to ensure you’re fully prepared and having fun! On Friday, after the iday festivities of the days before, you’ll be invited to a social drinks evening so you can let your hair down and celebrate your new job before you return home.

Monday

You’ll be up bright and early to have breakfast and be transported to the iday location with your fellow teachers. Once you arrive, you’ll interview with multiple schools which have been specially selected for you based on your skills and requirements. Your Engage consultant will give you information and tips on each school, so you’ll feel supported and prepared for each meeting.

Lunch and refreshments are provided and each iday is set in a great location where you can relax between interviews and meet other teachers.

Tuesday

The day after iday you will attend a free CPD session about teaching in the UK, including curriculum training and school structure information. After your free lunch, you’ll receive feedback from the schools you’ve interviewed with and be notified of which ones you’ve matched with.

The rest of your afternoon will be spent planning your iday lesson. You’ll receive a step-by-step guide to lesson planning with the help of the Teaching & Learning team, and have a chance to practice your lesson.

Wednesday and Thursday

On Wednesday and/or Thursday, you’ll be delivering your taster lesson in your chosen schools! You’ll be completely prepared for this from the day before, and our team will be on hand to help you with any last-minute questions. After your taster days in the chosen schools, you’ll receive detailed feedback from your consultant.

In the evening, there will be an informal Q&A session to assist you with any questions that have arisen after your in-school experiences.
