Teach in England
Why Teach In England?
If you’re looking to kick-start your teaching career, England is a great place to start. We work with an abundance of schools looking to fill their vacant positions. Moving to England opens up new opportunities and faster career progression whilst remaining close to home. We can help you find your dream role.
Stay close to home
When you teach in England you can travel to Ireland within hours, so you’re never too far from your family and friends back home. England has multiple major airports that fly to Ireland so wherever you’re living there’s nothing standing in the way of visiting family and friends back in Ireland during the weekend or school holidays.
Gain teaching experience in England
Teaching in England is a great way to get experience, especially when you’re just starting out in your career. Our great partner schools are looking for bright new teachers to fill their long-term and permanent full-time vacancies and in return offer great training opportunities on the job. For teachers who excel in their new careers, schools in England are also able to offer faster career progression than you could expect back home due to a favourable teacher-to-vacancy ratio.
Join the community
When you relocate to England, you’ll be joining a huge community of Irish teachers who have made the jump to teaching here. You’ll be able to get tips and advice from established Irish teachers working in England, as well as form new friendships with Engage’s organised social events. You’ll be feeling right at home in no time at all!
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 Irish office. Our Irish consultants are all former teachers with international teaching experience, so they’re best placed to give you great relocation advice! Once you arrive in England 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 & 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 new country. 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.
