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!

Clare Hooton and her team at Supply Desk Sheffield were a tremendous help in transitioning to the UK from Australia. I first worked as a supply teacher in 2010, and within a couple weeks they had found me a year long maternity cover position in English. On my return to teaching in the UK in 2016 I was provided with supply work each day and within a week I received a semester long block in Geography. The GPS contract provided me with peace of mind, and at each step of the way I found Supply Desk highly professional and extremely helpful.

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.

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.
