UK schools are currently experiencing a shortage of qualified teachers. Many rely on teacher recruitment agencies like A Star Teachers to find and recruit overseas trained educators to fill their vacancies. Overseas trained teachers bring a fresh perspective and character to schools. In return, the opportunity to work in the UK adds tremendous value to each teacher’s own experience and ultimately their career.
To teach in the UK, you must have the following, prior to starting work:
- An appropriate work visa to teach in the UK
- Relevant teaching qualifications
- An overseas police check and DBS
If you can provide each of these, then we want to hear from you!
