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.

14 days from first contact with Raj at Teach In, to a job offer from a school that fits me very well. Raj had the right feel for who I am and what I was looking for and on top of things. Good listener and considerate of my needs.
Thanks Raj :-)

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!

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!
