When you get in touch with Engage, we’ll assign you your own personal Engage consultant from our local Canadian office. Our Canadian consultants are all former teachers with international teaching experience, so they’re best placed to give you great relocation advice!

When you relocate with Engage Education, you’ll receive tailored relocation assistance from our team of consultants in Canada and the UK. Whatever you need, our consultants will be able to point you in the right direction. Not only will we help with visas and paperwork, getting set up in your new home, and organising your UK bank account and mobile phone, you’ll also receive a £1000 relocation bonus to go towards your costs, helping make the move that much easier.

Professional Development and Support

Once you’re working in your dream school, our support doesn’t stop there. Our Teaching & Learning Partnership team is made up of former SLT-level teachers who are on hand to liaise with you and your school to pinpoint any areas for further development and will work with you to create tailored CPD sessions to help you be the best educator you can be. We also have CPD sessions held at multiple locations around the country which are free to attend for all teachers that cover a variety of supplementary topics.
