Pupils in a PE lesson

International and Sponsorship

Career Teachers offer support to qualified teachers looking to teach in London from the following countries:

  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Canada
  • South Africa 
  • USA

Tier 2 sponsorship is an option for appropriately qualified teachers looking to work in England who are not eligible for a UK or EU passport or any other UK work visa (Youth mobility/spousal etc…)

Career Teachers as an agency are not able to offer sponsorship directly, but recruit sponsorship eligible candidates for permanent positions on behalf of a select number of schools and academies. 

At present we are only able to support sponsorship applications from teachers who are trained in subjects listed on the shortage subject occupation list issued by the government and are able to obtain UK Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 

Shortage subjects: Computer Science (ICT) Maths, Mandarin and Science (Physics, chemistry and Biology)

Eligibility for QTS: www.gov.uk/guidance/qualified-teacher-status-qts If you would only qualify as an Overseas Trained Teacher you would not be eligible for a Tier 2 application. 

If you would like to speak to a member of our dedicated sponsorship team about what opportunities are available then please contact heidihinchliffe@careerteachers.co.uk or call +44 (0)20 7105 3499 and ask for Heidi Hinchliffe.
