Rewarding our teachers: Money in the bank

We help our teachers in multiple ways:

  • Experiences: Free travel to the UK, visit schools, decide where you want to work and live.
  • Career Planning: Personalized plan including CPD training, induction and continuous development.
  • Life Support: Help with the move, VISA, getting set up to be paid, support with accommodation and a dedicated number for anything related to life.
That is a very progressive and proactive approach and that has always been a feature of our company. We have helped 99,702 teachers with work and life to find the balance they need and whilst caring and understanding certainly helps anyone feel looked after it did get us thinking about loyalty.

What is loyalty?

Wikipedia opens with this: Loyalty is devotion and faithfulness to a cause, country, group, or person. Philosophers disagree on what can be an object of loyalty as some argue that loyalty is strictly interpersonal and only another human being can be the object of loyalty.

It is an interesting debate and for our world, it is slightly easier to define as we only have one cause and effect when it comes to loyalty, YOU!

We know that moving to a new country can be daunting and helping you in your life, in your career and to know it’s the right decision is only part of the puzzle. Many companies say they want you to feel part of the family, we live that with our support and process but that was not enough for us, we wanted you to feel it after you move here. So we did, this is what you get alongside everything else we already covered:

After your first term – £500 in your bank

After your second term – £250 more in your bank

After your third term (end of the first year) – £250 more

Using today’s exchanges rates as a total that is:

1,120 Euro

$1,660 CAD

$1,690 AUD

Or in British terms ‘A lot of dosh for being a good sort, innit’

(Sorry about the innit, we do reward our teachers but as you can see we need your help to teach us better vernacular).
