Support for overseas candidates

Support for overseas candidates

Our role isn’t about taking your name and then sending you to the first school we can find. We take the time to get to know you.

We need to understand:

  • What you want to gain from your overseas teacher experience
  • Where you would like to be based
  • What you like to do
  • What type of school you’d prefer
  • How long you’re planning to stay

Only then will we start working to match you to the perfect opportunity. We work with hundreds of schools across the UK, helping them to find great teachers for both permanent and supply roles.

It’s equally important to us as it is to our client schools that their pupils receive an outstanding education. As an overseas teacher, you will have a massive influence on the life of a young person who can only imagine the journey you are about to undertake.

Once we have secured you your ideal role, we will support you in your whole transition from home to the UK. We help hundreds of overseas teachers each year with everything from advice on visas, accommodation, bank accounts, national insurance numbers and travel.

When you arrive in the UK, our amazing team of experienced consultants will be on hand to support you as you settle in. They will meet you in person to check all is well and arrange for you to join our next social events to meet other overseas teachers.

We’ll stay in touch throughout your time in the UK – we want you to have the best possible experience while you are here.
