What types of roles are available?

Permanent or Fixed Term Contracts

If you are an Australian or New Zealand teacher coming to the UK on a Tier 2 Visa then your only option is to be employed directly by a school on either a Permanent or Fixed-Term Contract.

This would mean that you are employed directly by the employer, either on a permanent contract (with no end date) or on a Fixed Term Contract (for a specific period of time, usually between 1 and 2 years). The task of finding the right vacancy, completing application forms and submitting CVs can feel like a full-time job in itself. Our excellent relationships with schools and MATs throughout the country means that we can help you find the perfect role in the UK

Long Term Placement

(Available to candidates who are not sponsored on Tier 2)

Long-term placements allow you to work on an ongoing basis in one school. This can vary from a few weeks, a term, or even a full year. This is often the preferred method of employment for both teachers and schools when candidates are relocating from overseas as it gives you the opportunity to experience being in the school before deciding to agree to a permanent contract. Long-term placements can often lead to the offer of a permanent role and allow you to experience teaching in a variety of settings, ensuring that you can see how each school operates, and make sure that if you do decide to take a permanent role the one you select is the right place for you.

Day2Day Supply

(Available to candidates who are not sponsored on Tier 2)

If you are looking for a role that gives you more of a work-life balance (allowing you to travel a lot more while you are here) and mostly requires no planning - then supply teaching may be for you. It offers that flexibility so you can work around other commitments. It also affords you the opportunity to gain more experience in numerous settings and schools. Sometimes it is daunting accepting a permanent role right away - supply teaching allows you to get the feel for the school and can lead to a longer-term contract if that is what you are looking for. Through daily supply, you can ensure you are finding the perfect role for you.
