Teach in the the UK

Why teach in the UK?

Teaching in the UK is a fantastic choice for Canadian teachers who are looking for reliable, stable and internationally-valued teaching experience. When you embark on your new adventure in the UK as a qualified teacher, you’ll be able to undertake any teaching work that suits you – whether that’s daily supply, long-term cover, or permanent teaching work – so your job can fit around your new life.

Schools in the UK are hoping to fill their vacant supply and permanent teaching positions with quality teachers who can offer an international perspective to their students. Thanks to a favourable teacher ratio in the UK, schools can offer faster career progression than you would typically expect in Canada.

Benefits of teaching with Engage

We know that a supported teacher is a successful teacher, so when you begin teaching with Engage Education, you immediately qualify for all of our great benefits:

Your Own Personal Engage Consultants

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! Once you arrive in the UK you’ll also have contact with a UK-based consultant, who will offer you relocation support and be your first point of contact for any questions you have about your school, working in England, or anything else!

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.

24/7 Wellbeing SUpport

We understand that there are times when teaching seems too much to handle, especially when you have recently relocated to a whole new continent. That’s why, when you become an Engage teacher, you’ll be signed up to our Employee Assistance Programme with our partners at the Education Support Partnership. The Employee Assistance Programme gives you access to 24/7 wellbeing support, face-to-face counselling sessions, financial and legal advice, and a host of other support benefits for when you need them.
