Within a week of being contacted, I already had two interviews with the school I ended up working at. Everything was done extremely promptly whereas other agencies were incredibly slow and inefficient.

From the first time I spoke with Raj at Teach In she immediately struck me as a genuine person. After only a couple of days contact, Raj has gotten me a contract with a school that fits me very well. Raj is an excellent listener and no question is too big or small, she is always there to help.
I would honestly recommend Raj to anyone looking for a job, she takes her role very seriously and will not stop until she finds you a job.

Gemma Yates made contact with me after a conversation at school with our secretary about me going at Easter to visit family. I was asked about the possibility of doing interviews with potential teachers looking to come to the UK to teach. From my first e-mail right through to saying goodbye in Perth the organisation was faultless. The location of the interviews was central and the facilities were very good. It was always very professional; both e-mails and face to face. My experience was very refreshing and it really helped me with my own CPD. I learnt a lot from the interview day about new teacher’s expectations and also their worries. This has made me reflect on my own practice and hopefully improve the experiences of my new and existing teachers.
I would unreservedly recommend other head teachers to take this opportunity if it becomes available as it was something I would definitely do again if I was asked. Also I would like to take this chance to thank Gemma for organising it all and looking after me on that day. It was a real pleasure.

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.

I definitely recommend Teach In if you are considering teaching jobs. They do all the work for you – they quickly secured me interviews in a shorter space of time than it takes me to fill out a job application form!
After speaking to Trixie from Teach In on the Thursday, she had managed to secure me two interviews by the Friday. By the following Monday I was offered and accepted a job! They are considerate of your needs/wants eg area, school size, faith/non-faith schools, age groups you want to teach etc. It saved me a lot of time and effort from applying to lots of jobs individually and from a lot of stress.
