I cannot recommend Teach In enough to not only NQT applicants but to all teachers who are looking for an easy and stress free journey into their teaching career! I had endless support from Ashley, who made the entire process flow so smoothly from start to finish and not to mention stress free! Ashley talked me through my different options step by step and could not have been more helpful. I was interested in re-locating which is something I felt quite nervous about but Ashley took the time to get to know me as a teacher asking about my interests and, luckily enough, with one interview I got the job! I honestly don't feel like I could have done it without him. On the day of interview Ashley rang me with an enthusiastic, positive attitude which is something that I greatly appreciated! He calmed my nerves and made me feel at ease with he entire interview process. I couldn't be happier with the personal and efficient service I received and can't thank the team at Teach In enough! I look forward to meeting with you again in the future.

I definitely recommend Teach In if you are considering teaching jobs. They do all the work for you – they quickly secured me interviews in a shorter space of time than it takes me to fill out a job application form!
After speaking to Trixie from Teach In on the Thursday, she had managed to secure me two interviews by the Friday. By the following Monday I was offered and accepted a job! They are considerate of your needs/wants eg area, school size, faith/non-faith schools, age groups you want to teach etc. It saved me a lot of time and effort from applying to lots of jobs individually and from a lot of stress.

Thank you to Teach in for providing Flinders University Students with professional development and the opportunity to gain interviews with UK Principals.

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for me over the past couple months! Before I came here to Bucks I did not have the best school or support from my previous agency up in Nottingham. Therefore my confidence was at a low. After speaking with you and realizing that there were other schools much better, I first didn't believe you, but realized I wasn't ready to go home. I am so glad that you were able to convince me to stay in England for the full year. If it wasn't for your endless search to find me the best fit I would have gone home discouraged and had a bad opinion of teaching and possibly not pursued it further. For that I am truly thankful and grateful for everything you have done!
Now I must return home, and because of all my UK teaching experience I was able to land a teaching job in Canada. I couldn't be happier to have received the position! Thank you for everything you have done for me.

The Teach In / Supply Desk Leeds team have been incredibly helpful during my time working in schools in the UK. I was lucky enough to come over with my brother and a friend, who both went through the agency as well. They walked us through all the nitty-gritty paperwork pre-departure, picked us up from the airport upon arrival, transported us to our initial
accommodation, and even advised us where we could get a good meal. They allowed me the time I needed to settle in, such as setting myself up with a bank account, and finding permanent accommodation before organising interviews for potential job opportunities at various schools.
The team were very thorough and helpful in finding me suitable work that utilised my experience while being very considerate of finding suitable schools close by, in order to lessen my travel time to and from work.
I would recommend this company to anyone who is considering teaching over in the UK, especially in Leeds. The incentives and flexibility in work arrangements that the company offer will suit anyone’s circumstances, whether you would like to work full-time and build bank, or go the casual supply route and travel around the UK & Europe.
