"Nav has been a great help in aiding me in my transition from the UK. From helping me find my school to providing kind support there's nothing him and Teach In haven't been there to help me with. Now I love my job, love where I live and have Nav and his team to thank for it. You couldn't find a better team to help you with your transition."
Susan Mallard, Canadian Teacher working in Buckinghamshire
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 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.

Teach in is a fantastic teaching agency. Lizzie, who acted as my consultant, was extremely professional and dedicated, ensuring that I was always kept up-to-date with the status of my application and prepared for each step of the recruitment process. Lizzie really took the time to understand what I was looking for and was committed to seeking out a suitable role. Teach In do not simply throw any old job at you, they listen to you and research potential jobs to ensure that they find the right fit for you. To top it off, Lizzie even provided assistance with the visa application process! I have secured the perfect role and continue to receive support as I prepare to move to Kent. I cannot recommend Teach In highly enough. Do not hesitate to contact them if you are contemplating teaching in the U.K.!

Ashley went above and beyond to ensure I had a smooth transition into my school. If I had any questions no matter how small he was always just a phone call away and happy to help. When I was appointed a leadership position, he took care of following up my pay changes and had direct contact with the school regularly. Without his help, not only when I was back in Australia with organising interviews, but also here in London, I know it would not have been anywhere close to the smooth and stress free transition that Ashley was able to provide. I would highly recommend any teacher to use Teach In if you are looking for a UK teaching position.
