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!

Working with Trixie from Teach In has been an amazing experience. She has always worked hard to meet my needs, for my school (year group, location) and went beyond her duties to help me through providing support and even looking at my lesson plans and steering me in the right direction. Without her I would not have been able to find what I consider my perfect school. I look forward to working with Trixie again, when the time comes for looking for a new post.

Clare Hooton and her team at Supply Desk Sheffield were a tremendous help in transitioning to the UK from Australia. I first worked as a supply teacher in 2010, and within a couple weeks they had found me a year long maternity cover position in English. On my return to teaching in the UK in 2016 I was provided with supply work each day and within a week I received a semester long block in Geography. The GPS contract provided me with peace of mind, and at each step of the way I found Supply Desk highly professional and extremely helpful.

My experience with Teach In has been fantastic. Everyone I’ve worked with there has been incredibly friendly and helpful, responding almost immediately to any questions I’ve had and letting me know about the range of options available through them to work and travel in the UK. As someone just entering into the teaching profession, after having studied at both the University of Melbourne and the Australian Catholic University, it’s great to have this kind of support offered by Teach In available to me.

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.
