UK Trained Teachers in International Schools

Many UK trained teachers go overseas to teach in international schools. However, they always look to return home at some point. TimePlan work with international schools and teachers to ensure that international teachers can secure a teaching position for when they touch back down in the UK.

We have worked with many teachers over the past 27 years who have taught overseas and we know how difficult it can be for them to secure a teaching position in the UK when they are not available to attend interviews or trial days.

TimePlan can help teachers to return or relocate to the UK by providing teaching opportunities and support, including certified CPD. We can offer long term cover teaching in a particular school or day to day supply teaching in different schools. For 90% of teachers working through TimePlan this leads to a full time post of their choice.

TimePlan Education can offer:

  • A network of regional offices covering England and Scotland
  • Long term positions covering unfilled vacancies, maternity leave etc.
  • Guaranteed day to day supply teaching so you can experience numerous different schools
  • Permanent posts
  • Certified CPD courses
  • Help with relocation, including accommodation
  • Advice regarding visa applications
