Why Choose Prospero Teaching International?


  1. Teacher Support and Dedicated Consultant Guidance

When you partner with Prospero Teaching, you’ll benefit from personalized candidate support and dedicated consultants who understand the unique challenges and requirements of overseas teachers. They will guide you through every step of the process, from assessing your eligibility and safeguarding checks to securing a teaching position through a conditional offer, whilst navigating visa or immigration status.

We love for all of our teachers to find a home away from home wherever they choose to teach with us.

Further training opportunities will be outlined, as well as any steps required to gain QTS. Qualified teachers from New Zealand or Australia will be able to work in the UK without Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for up to 4 years. Should you choose to stay for longer, your academic qualifications will make it possible to apply for QTS.

Prospero Teaching is committed to providing the advice and support you need to succeed.

  1. Social Opportunities

Teaching in a new country is not just about the classroom; it’s also about creating lasting memories and forging new friendships. Prospero Teaching’s International Team organizes a range of social events, including meetups, cultural outings, and networking opportunities through our links with many schools across the UK.

Connect with fellow educators and explore the rich diversity of the UK’s cities, historic landmarks, and picturesque countryside.
