Teaching in the UK is a thrilling experience for European teachers

Whether you choose to relocate to a vibrant city such as London, Manchester or Aberdeen City, or opt for a quieter lifestyle in a quaint town or village such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Moray or Henley-on-Thames, teaching in the UK is a life changing experience for teachers from other parts of Europe.

Not only does a move here mean European teachers can explore this incredible country at the weekends and during the school holidays, it’s often hugely beneficial professionally too. The high number of teaching and relief vacancies in the UK mean newly qualified teachers are likely to walk straight into their own classroom and more established educators get to take on new challenges and responsibility. Not only that but your UK teaching job will open doors for you at British International Schools all over the world.

Not only will our supportive and experienced team help you gather the correct documentation, find you a vacancy that fits your career goals, assist with training and interview preparation and provide you with a generous relocation package, you’ll become part of our extended family, enjoying friendly emotional support and a full calendar of social events from the minute you arrive.
