European Resourcer

"Hi everyone, I'm Sinead and I am the Relocation Consultant for Europe! I have been working with European teachers for the last year, helping them secure full time teaching positions, finding accommodation and settling into London life. If you would like to talk more about the opportunities teaching in London can offer you then please email me at or call 020 7105 3499."

London is a fantastic city for European Teachers to live and work in, all we ask is that you are a fully qualified teacher in your home country, are English speaking, and have the passion to work in London classrooms.

Career Teachers will make sure that you enjoy living and teaching in London through in-depth training sessions that prepares you for the UK classroom, a position within a school so that you can start earning money immediately, assistance with finding yourself a place to live, setting up a UK bank account and money towards your flights.

London is an excellent place to develop your teaching skills, whilst enjoying the multi-cultural and vibrant highlights of this dynamic city. Some of our European teachers start off working as Teaching Assistants and Cover Supervisors as they feel more comfortable doing this. However, if you are a fully qualified teacher in your home country and this is the equivalent to a teaching qualification in the UK then you will be able to start working in the UK as a teacher once you arrive. 

Career Teachers run a number of social events for overseas trained teachers so you will be able to meet other teachers who have recently made the move to teach in London. 

If you would like more information on living in London then check out our London borough guide or blog to find out more about specific areas.
