‘Teaching Agencies London’ … so you have just entered this keyword search into Google, and so the process begins.
What are your hopes, and expectations? How will you determine which companies are the best to deal with? This short blog post will hopefully provide some much-needed guidance.
Teaching Agencies London Google search is often the first step an overseas trained teacher will take towards their investigation into teaching options in the UK. Why London? Well for many candidates this is the obvious port of call – based on others ‘recommendations’. London is a fantastic city, but not the only city within the UK that requires overseas teachers. Knowing this, enables teachers to extend their search, and find an agency that provides teaching roles in other UK cities and towns, also.
Other than location, what other filters could you apply to your agency search? As an overseas teacher who has lived and taught in the UK, I would suggest the following:
Find a UK teaching agency that is…
- Well established – 15+ years
- Is accredited by a recognised UK, and international, professional standards organisation
- Is staffed by teachers
- Represented in your home country e.g. Australia, New Zealand, UAE, Canada etc.
- Able to offer a variety of work types: full-time, part-time, contract etc.
- Department for Education (UK) Working alongside the
- Able to offer free Professional Development
- Personable and responsive!
- Recommended by teachers
Agencies that tick the above are a great place to start. From there your judgment as to which company to commit to will largely be based on ‘gut feel’ – an important instinct for any teacher.
Fortunately, Prospero Teaching is an established, and award-winning, UK teaching agency. We are proud to tick all the boxes.
