Teach in the UK with TimePlan! We have a successful track record of placing European teachers in English and Scottish schools. As a citizen of an EEA or EU country you can enjoy the right to work here in the UK with no visa restrictions; enjoying full working rights and the opportunity to come and go as you please. You can search and apply online for teaching jobs in the UK or register with us and a consultant will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss your application.

Depending on your professional experience and qualifications, you may be able to secure a teaching role in the initial instance. However, you may have to consider beginning your teaching career in the UK, as a Teaching Assistant. Most schools expect you to have experience in a UK classroom and a near-perfect level of English, consequently a short term teaching assistant position working in a school before you become a teacher is often the first step.

With 9 offices across England we are a national company able to offer you a variety of roles and locations that will suit your lifestyle and schedule.

Easter in Amsterdam

Explore Amsterdam by land and sea! Travel with a Contiki group to explore the city’s famous canals with a night time canal cruise. Then in the morning visit the famous tulip gardens of Keukenhof and soak up the culture in Amsterdam’s world famous museums, trendy cafés and shops. You’ll also get the chance to hop on a bike and take a tour through the scenic village of Edam, famous for its windmills and cheese!


Easter in Paris

Fancy spending Easter in Paree? Qui, qui! Whisk away from London to Paris on this memorable three night jaunt, where you’ll experience all the City of Light has to offer and more. Cruise the River Seine, shop along the Champs-Élysées, ascend the Eiffel Tower and devour as many macaroons, crème brulees and pain au chocolates as you can handle.

Easter in Bruges

Bruges is calling. Join your fellow teachers on this four-day escape to the fairytale-like Belgian city, where cobblestone streets and medieval buildings are in abundance and getting around in a horse-drawn carriage is totally the norm. With a chocolate demonstration and a brewery visit to help wash it all down, this is guaranteed to be an Easter to remember.

Or you can get a £300 voucher for any Contiki or Topdeck Holiday!
Subject to availability and change. Terms and conditions apply.
