Teach in the UK

Teachers from Europe – Welcome to TimePlan!

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 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.

Qualify for UK Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)

What does TimePlan need from you?

TimePlan prides itself on vetting teachers so that schools in the UK have teachers of an excellent standard. So there are a few things we require from you:

• Excellent spoken and written English
• All documentation to be translated and certified in English
• A police check from your home country
• UK Qualified Teacher Status is a great advantage
