Teach In is a fantastic way to get connections with great schools, and it takes the hassle out of applying for jobs independently. I went along to the NQT event and both Sabrina and her colleague were helpful, friendly and encouraging. I felt very nervous when I first arrived, however they provided an open, fun yet professional atmosphere which instantly put me at ease. They were genuinely interested in my teaching journey so far and adapted the day to suit myself and my fellow NQTs. I was thrilled that it had been arranged for me to go and visit one of the schools that I was very interested in applying for, where I was able to meet the head teacher and the deputy head, who were both very welcoming and willing to have a professional talk with me about my time in schools so far. I feel that Teach In has helped me on my journey of becoming a teacher and I am looking forward to hopefully meeting with them again in the future. Thank you!

Working with Nav (in the Bucks office) was incredible not just because he got me a job (!), but because of the value he places on his relationships with the people he works with. Not only did he take the time to get to know me, but it was instantly apparent that he has an in-depth knowledge of the schools in his area. When Nav told me about a vacancy I wasn't just left to the school's website and Ofsted reports to find information out. He told me the things you can't get from a website - what the Head was like, how the school is regarded in the community, and his knowledge of their philosophy after years of working with them. When you're trying to find a job from the other side of the world, this kind of first-hand insight is priceless. I worked with several agencies when I was job hunting but can honestly say Nav was the one to place me because he was the BEST.

"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."

I was set up with an Interview at a school with the help of TeachIn, without me really having to put in too much effort apart from forward my Personal Statement. TeachIn did the rest! They found a school that suited my needs and arranged everything from there.
I was successfully offered a job and it was only my first Interview!
I definitely recommend TeachIn! The people that work for that agency are super friendly and they work to support you through job applications at every step.

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.
