What locations can I work in, across the UK?
We are part of a large organization called Education Placement Group.
We have branch locations across England and Wales through Teach in, Supply Desk and Justteachers offices, and we also run the largest privately owned Teacher Training provider in the UK, e-Qualitas. Supporting and training teachers is what we are all about.
Having these connections means you gain access to work opportunities in lots of cities and regional parts of the UK. It also means you can choose to travel and work in several places during your time there if you decide you want a change of scenery.
Here is an overview of the main locations we service, but we have not included everywhere we have work, so let us know if you have a preference not mentioned like Surrey, Portsmouth, Berkshire, Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham, and further north. Got a question? Click here to contact us.
