Why teach in the UK?

A teaching career means your skills are transferable across the globe, so why not experience teaching in another country to aid your development?

With the latest changes, Australian qualified teachers can apply for UK qualified teacher status (QTS) on arrival, and can start earning the same amount as UK qualified teachers.

Teaching in the UK and London in particular, offers both Primary and Secondary trained teachers a great opportunity to:

  • Expand their teaching knowledge
  • Gain professional development
  • Start a career
  • Secure a good level of earnings
  • Travel and explore Europe
