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.

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.

Gemma Yates made contact with me after a conversation at school with our secretary about me going at Easter to visit family. I was asked about the possibility of doing interviews with potential teachers looking to come to the UK to teach. From my first e-mail right through to saying goodbye in Perth the organisation was faultless. The location of the interviews was central and the facilities were very good. It was always very professional; both e-mails and face to face. My experience was very refreshing and it really helped me with my own CPD. I learnt a lot from the interview day about new teacher’s expectations and also their worries. This has made me reflect on my own practice and hopefully improve the experiences of my new and existing teachers.
I would unreservedly recommend other head teachers to take this opportunity if it becomes available as it was something I would definitely do again if I was asked. Also I would like to take this chance to thank Gemma for organising it all and looking after me on that day. It was a real pleasure.

I really like the way Teach In staff have always kept me up to date with what is happening through the process of preparing to work in the UK. I would 100% recommend Teach In to friends.

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.
