Get ready for the job interview of a lifetime!

We are looking for outstanding teachers and teaching graduates in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Ireland who are interested in teaching in the UK. We pick the cream of the crop to attend a taster tour of teaching in a UK – and with a guaranteed job at the end of it. Oh, and it’s free!

Successful teacher applicants will be flown to London. Teachers will take part in some deep professional development workshops, before spending time observing, shadowing, team-teaching and meeting the staff in two of our best schools in the area. During the trip teachers are offered a guaranteed teaching job at the school of their choice – all whilst spending time getting to know the staff, students, school culture and highlights of the local area, so you can be sure it really is your perfect placement!

 The tour was a great opportunity to visit different schools around London, teach lessons that suited different year levels and to meet possible staff and students of each school. It was good to get a ‘feel’ of the school to decide whether it was right for you. Travelling to different schools around London helped me get my bearings and visit different possible locations to live. I also enjoyed the opportunity to meet other teachers from Australia doing the tour. Sophie, Teach In Tour participant
