Qualified Teacher Status

The UK Government is actively encouraging overseas teachers to move to the UK. They see the huge benefit you can bring. Last year the UK Government made the process of applying for QTS fairer, ensuring that many teachers don’t have to undertake any additional training – making the transition from your home to the UK smoother.

World-Class Education System

The UK boasts a world-class education system - the UK National Curriculum is taught across the globe, opening the doors to those with experience of teaching in the UK to a plethora of opportunities in countries across all continents.  

Whole School Approach 

In the UK’s education sector, you’ll be working in a supportive environment, learning from experienced and skilled colleagues. The UK Government is committed to the ‘whole school’ approach to mental health and wellbeing, ensuring everyone in the education setting - pupils, teachers, parents/carers and support staff – have access to the support they might need.

From the South to the Scottish Highlands

If travel is your love, you’ll be delighted with all the UK has to offer. From the booming capital, London, to the exquisite Lake District National Park to the glorious Scottish Highlands and many, many beautiful cities, towns and villages, each with their own distinct personality. 

There is a particular demand for high quality teaching staff in London, and the UK’s “second city” Birmingham. Both cities are within 2 hours of almost everywhere in Britain, as well as many of Europe’s most visited cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, and Dublin.

So how can we help?
