In the last 6 months I have been working closely with Teach In and seen the support they have given to their overseas teachers as part of the recruitment process. It is not just about finding the right schools for teachers who are considering their working life in the UK, but it has been impressive to witness the way they nurture candidates through the interview process and during that important early induction period when they are starting work at their new school.

Teach In is a fantastic way to get connections with great schools, and it takes the hassle out of applying for jobs independently. I went along to the NQT event and both Sabrina and her colleague were helpful, friendly and encouraging. I felt very nervous when I first arrived, however they provided an open, fun yet professional atmosphere which instantly put me at ease. They were genuinely interested in my teaching journey so far and adapted the day to suit myself and my fellow NQTs. I was thrilled that it had been arranged for me to go and visit one of the schools that I was very interested in applying for, where I was able to meet the head teacher and the deputy head, who were both very welcoming and willing to have a professional talk with me about my time in schools so far. I feel that Teach In has helped me on my journey of becoming a teacher and I am looking forward to hopefully meeting with them again in the future. Thank you!

14 days from first contact with Raj at Teach In, to a job offer from a school that fits me very well. Raj had the right feel for who I am and what I was looking for and on top of things. Good listener and considerate of my needs.
Thanks Raj :-)

Ashley went above and beyond to ensure I had a smooth transition into my school. If I had any questions no matter how small he was always just a phone call away and happy to help. When I was appointed a leadership position, he took care of following up my pay changes and had direct contact with the school regularly. Without his help, not only when I was back in Australia with organising interviews, but also here in London, I know it would not have been anywhere close to the smooth and stress free transition that Ashley was able to provide. I would highly recommend any teacher to use Teach In if you are looking for a UK teaching position.
