Teach in the UK
YES! If you have a recognised teaching qualification and UK working rights, we can help secure teaching work in England. There is lots of work available for Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Special Needs schools across England.
You can work in the UK as a supply teacher, as a long-term cover teacher, or as a permanent teacher. It all depends on what suits your lifestyle and goals!
We collect a copy of your qualifications, working rights (Visa), Passport and other ID, required criminal clearances from your home country, the UK, (we process your DBS) and any other country you have lived in for more than 6 months in the last 5 years as well as up to date references and our registration forms and your teaching CV. We also complete a video interview with each of our teachers to understand your skills and experience and help match you to the right school.
Get in touch with us and we will arrange to have a chat to discuss your skills and experience, and what kind of life in England would suit you and your family. From there, we will work with you and our fantastic partner schools (we have over 3000) to find your ideal teaching job in England. Once you have your new role, we will help you to arrange your new accomodation in England for you and your family, as well as a bank account, UK mobile phone, and anything else you need to find your feet.
The British school year is comprised of 3 terms. Term one starts in early September and finishes in late December. There is a half-term break of a week in October and two weeks off over Xmas and New Year. Term 2 starts in early January. There is a February half term break of a week and then the term ends on Easter for two weeks. Term three usually starts in mid-April depending on Easter dates, and there is a week off in May for half-term. The school year ends in late July. The summer break is through late July and August, with school starting again in September. We can find you a role that starts in September, January, or April!
We work with all types of schools in England. Whether you want to teach in a state, faith or independent school, we have opportunities in Early Years, Primary, Secondary and Special Needs schools across the country.
Our schools are located all over England. We work with over 3000 schools and have offices in London, Hertfordshire, Peterborough, Reading and Norwich. The schools we support are located all over London, Kent, Essex, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Sussex.
Our support begins on day one and doesn't stop! We will help you with interview preparation, support when looking at visa options, the relocation itself, and continuous CPD and life support while you’re teaching in England.
If you are looking to work regularly in a range of schools but be flexible to travel or spend time with your family in term time, supply work is for you. You can work as little or as often as you like in all parts of London and regional locations across England.
If you are looking to work in one school, teaching your specialist subjects for a set amount of time, this is a great option for you. A contract in one school will mean you have support and mentoring, you will build rapport with students and know where you are working every day. You will have more marking and planning to do than if you work as a supply teacher, but you will benefit from the security and stability of a regular paycheck for the length of your contract.
If you are relocating to England permanently and want to secure a full-time ongoing position, permanent work is for you. We can find a permanent role for teachers who want this level of commitment and security when they move to England.
Yes! We fly selected teachers to England for a 9 day round trip to meet and interview with multiple schools in one location. The event is called iday. During the week you will be given professional development, be able to visit your top preference schools, tour London and secure a role, at no expense. We cover the cost of your accommodation, flights, most meals and transfers. It is a great way to find the right job and also meet and get to know new teacher friends from all over the world.
iday is your opportunity to fly to England and find your ideal teaching job through face-to-face interviews before you start the relocation process. It's completely free!
