Continued Professional Development for International Teachers

We recognise the importance of continued professional development for teachers, and particularly for overseas teachers who are new to the UK education system. Canadian teachers are at an advantage, as the curriculum is similar to what is taught in England, and Canadian teachers are well received in schools across England and often progress quickly into leadership positions. 

At Teach in, you will have lots of support and resources available to you before you arrive in the UK and after you arrive. You will also have a Mentor teacher allocated to you when you start your teaching job and support if needed from the Education Support Partnership. 

Before you start working you will attend an Overseas Teachers Induction Day, covering major topics such as behavior management, safeguarding, the UK curriculum and Ofsted.

All overseas teachers on supply of fixed term contracts will also have the opportunity to participate in the large number of PD courses we offer through the year, such as:

  • Team-Teach – a behaviour support training programme which teaches positive handling strategies for responding to and managing challenging behaviours.
  • Jolly Phonics – a fun, multi-sensory approach to teaching literacy through phonics.
  • Introduction to SEN Classroom Management
  • Delivering outstanding lessons
  • Safeguarding in Education & Child Protection
  • AET Induction – including Discipline with Dignity®
  • Manual handling
  • Numeracy, literacy & reading support
  • Maths interventions
  • English & reading interventions
  • Exam techniques
  • HAPS tutoring
  • British Sign Language
  • ASD Training

Our UK Overseas Candidate Manager will work closely with you to ensure you have access to the PD you want / need.

We hold regular webinars to make sure you hit the ground running!
