What is iday?

Created by Engage Education and run by our global team, iday is a revolution in teacher recruitment.

iday events enable qualified teachers to travel to their preferred work location and be interviewed for a variety of teaching roles, all for free.

iday helps both teachers and schools sidestep the challenges associated with recruitment – from prohibitive travel costs to awkward telephone interviews.

How do I get involved?

iday is the smart way to find the ideal teaching position. iday matches hundreds of young teachers from the UK and overseas, with hundreds of vacancies in UK schools. Through multiple face-to-face interviews, all in one place, on one day, it’s a remarkably effortless way for the right teachers to click with the right schools.

We aren’t a ‘fly-in, fly-out’ agency, we want to make sure you find a school that suits you as an individual. We believe a face-to-face interview significantly boosts the chances of a successful job offer (for both parties) compared to a telephone or skype interview.

Prior to the event, your iday consultant will advise you on CV presentation, references and relevant documentation that you will need in order to work legally in the UK. Pre-interviews and feedback will help you prepare for the day. At the event itself, your consultant will be there to encourage and help you at every turn, giving you the best possible chance of getting your ideal job. After each iday, we run a full CPD session that will help you with the practical skills of planning lessons and curriculum management, and which will put you in a confident state of mind to demonstrate your teaching ability at its best.

Let us know you’d like to participate in an iday event and we’ll do the rest.

Register with Engage Education and you could be interviewing for a new teaching role within a few days – it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
