5 Tips to Finding the Best Teaching Jobs in the UK

If you are a new graduate and are looking for a great teaching job and a way to experience a country and culture unlike your own, consider applying for a teaching job in the UK. The UK can offer a plethora of options for you in regards to work as well as extracurricular activity. While the UK is a wonderful place to live as it is beautiful and offers an abundance of history at every turn, the people make the country a wonderful place to work and reside. This article will provide some tips to help you find these teaching jobs all over the UK.


  1. Prepare your resume and cover letter. When applying for any job, it is a good idea to tailor your resume and cover letter to match the job you are applying for. So for instance, if you are applying for a teaching job that specializes in mathematics for primary school children, your resume and cover letter should highlight areas and experiences that demonstrate your abilities to do the job well. Use your cover letter to show that you have done your research on the school district, highlight your interest in the position, and explain why you think you are the best qualified candidate for the role. If you can be genuine and express your desire to teach in a way that is professional and exudes passion for the job, you will likely be able to land an interview.
  2. Consider hiring a teacher’s job agency. In today’s hiring market, it can be a challenge to land a job that is perfect for you in every way. In fact, it can be a challenge to get an interview because of the number of candidates that apply for any job. To help you with your job search process, consider hiring a teacher’s job agency. An agency can help you find the perfect job as well as advocate for you as a solid candidate. Job searching can be highly stressful. However, it does not have to be, and hiring an agency can help eliminate any potential stress that can occur.
  3. Research your certifications and visa information. When applying for jobs overseas, be sure to research your certifications and if they will transfer over to UK standards. Another important task to take care of is to obtain a visa. It will be quite challenging to move to another country and work without a proper visa that entails you the right to do so.
  4. Research school districts and towns. Before you commit to a job, you will want to do research on school districts and towns that would suit your lifestyle. For example, if you know that you love the city life, you will likely want to obtain a job in a large city such as London or Birmingham. However, if you prefer a quiet life, you will want to consider searching for a job in a smaller town like Cornwall.
  5. Understand teaching requirements and classroom expectations. Another aspect of teaching that you will need to consider before taking a position in the UK is the classroom expectations and teaching requirements of each school district. The UK has a different grading system and testing requirements than what is required in the US. Knowing these differences can help make the transition smoother when it comes to your job.
