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.

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.

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 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.

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.
