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

Do I need to get a return ticket if I am travelling on the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa?
No, most tickets are only valid for one year and this visa is valid for two years, so you are ok to just get the one way ticket.

I am heading to the UK to travel primarily. What happens if I want to take a week off?
If you are working for us on a day to day basis then you can come and go as you please. Just make sure that you keep your consultant updated on your availability so that you do get work when you want it. However, you must fulfil all teaching assignments that you have accepted, not turning up for work on Monday because you were having such a great time in Paris at the weekend is not good and your consultant is not likely to want to book you out again in a hurry!

How do I enrol my kids in school?
Firstly, you will need to find somewhere to live and then you must approach the local authority to find out which schools fall within your catchment area. You will be allocated a place within one of these schools based on the current number of enrolments.

Does the UK Academic Year only have three terms?
Yes, the Autumn term (Term 1) runs from early Sept until around the 18th December, the Spring Term runs from early January until Easter and the Summer Term runs from straight after Easter until around the 3rd week in July. Each term has a mid term break (1 week), so you will find that you are only teaching for 7 weeks at any one time before you have at least a week off. Plenty of time for travelling!

What’s the best and most cost effective way to travel around London?
Use an Oyster card, it calculates the cheapest travel route for you. (Available at stations)
