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.

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 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 took the plunge and moved to Medway, England in August 2017. Despite not knowing what would happen, being nervous as hell and crying most of the flights here, it was without a doubt the best thing I have ever done.
I have never been as challenged, inspired and rewarded as I have teaching in England and Teach In helped me to get here. Without their help and support, my journey would have been very different. They were there through all of it for me, from relocating to a new country and buying new bed sheets to how to prepare for my first day of school.
Thank you Teach In for all of your hard work and effort, in the 6 months I have lived here I have both grown as a person and as a teacher and part of that is owed to you.
