What teachers have been asking us this week....

What’s the best method of transferring money from Australia to England and vice versa??

Protocol Education works in partnership with Tranzfers. They offer a fantastic service and great rates with a flat fee of $15 per transfer and the first transfer is free to Protocol teachers. Set it all up before you leave Australia and as soon as you can do the rest with the click of a button as soon as your UK bank account is sorted. Check out their website or call one of their friendly Sydney based consultants to find out more.

What is an Umbrella company?
Protocol works in partnership with an ‘umbrella provider’ called Portfolio, that provides qualifying overseas teachers and support workers with the opportunity to significantly enhance their take-home pay through a range of allowable expenses.

Registering with My Key Pay, a product of Portfolio, means that you are entitled to offset work-related expenses such as travel, subsistence and some of the other direct costs associated with being a supply worker. In addition to this supply workers from overseas are also entitled to offset the cost of flights to the UK and accommodation whilst working here.

How do I go about finding the best deals on flights?
Webjet is a great tool to suss out the best available flights and then if you are not confident enough to book on line, head into flight centre with details of the flight you are after and they should be able to better the deal for you!

Do I need to buy a car?
If you are living in London, no way, the public transport system in London is great. If you are looking to live in a regional area, depending on how rural you go, buying a car could be worthwhile. Second hand cars are cheap to buy – £500 would get you a great little run around!
