Using Teach In has enabled us to bring some excellent Australian teachers into our school and their ethos completely fits our vision. They have High Expectations for the children it terms of their behaviour and work. They are Caring and develop relationships with the children quickly so that they are trusted. They have Positive Attitudes and bring that sense of energy and fun to the classroom and school. Finally, they are Successful getting great work and pride from the children they work with.
I would wholly recommend employing teachers from a different country as they bring a fresh outlook and energy to your staff team.

From the first time I spoke with Raj at Teach In she immediately struck me as a genuine person. After only a couple of days contact, Raj has gotten me a contract with a school that fits me very well. Raj is an excellent listener and no question is too big or small, she is always there to help.
I would honestly recommend Raj to anyone looking for a job, she takes her role very seriously and will not stop until she finds you a job.

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.

In May 2017, I took a leap of faith and met with Lizzie from Teach In about moving over to the United Kingdom to teach. In the months that followed I had many conversations with Lizzie and Gemma and landed a job teaching in a primary school. So, after eight months of preparing I moved to the UK. I thought that moving to a new country would be a really big change and take a while to get used to, but after about a month I felt completely at home here.
The transition to England was really smooth. Once I was in the county I stayed in temporary accommodation until I found the right property that was close to work and in a location that I could call home. I chose Windsor as it is a beautiful that is a great location for myself to travel all around Europe. Plus, I get to be a part of once in a life time experiences; like the Royal wedding in my home town, celebrating St Patrick’s Day in Ireland and going to Copenhagen just for a weekend.I have settled in quickly thanks to all the support I have had from the teachers and staff at my new school, to my family and the whole Teach In team back in Australia I am loving living in the UK and am so grateful that I took the risk and stepped outside my comfort zone. Take a chance, you’ll never regret it!

I like Teach In's social aspect and the partnership with jsa. Also, Steph is wonderful :)
It has been great meeting and getting to know other overseas teachers, who are in the same boat as myself.
