Keen on Cambridge..?

When you register with Protocol Education, you have the option of not only teaching through our 3 London offices but through 11 other regional branches all across the country. Many teachers aren’t too keen on the fast-paced lifestyle of London so be sure to cast an eye over our 11 other offices outside of the capital!

Today we cast a learned eye to Cambridge, about 50min north of London. The town itself is well known for its university and amazing history; what isn’t as well known is that Protocol Education places teachers not just in the city itself but all across Cambridgeshire and East Anglia too - the schools are well served by public transport links so it isn’t necessary to have a car either. If you are keen to live close to London but still maintain a regional feel of living, then Cambridge is for you!

Situated on the idyllic River Cam, Cambridge is one of the most famous university cities in the world and thanks to this you will find a wonderful mixture of cultures and people, and a vibrant night life. There are numerous clubs, a pub for every taste (and more!) plus theatres and concert halls that host regular events.

Cambridge truly is a green city, so if you prefer the appeal of the outdoors why not relax in one of the college gardens, parks or at The Backs. All provide a paradise for children and adults alike. But if you want to become a real local, jumping on a bicycle and explore the city and beyond is a must!

You cannot, however, visit Cambridge without experiencing the tranquillity of the River Cam via Punting! If you are feeling brave, take on the punting duties yourself, or if you prefer sit back and relax, have some wine and cheese, and let a local do the hard work and learn more about the eccentric history of the University of Cambridge.

Have a weekend free? Why not take a day trip to one of the many sights in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. There is the wonderful Ely Cathedral – the backdrop of many movies, the beautiful Abbey gardens and ruins of Bury St Edmunds, or numerous stately homes and castles. Travel to the north east and you will end up in Norfolk. With a sweeping coastline and forests worthy of Robin Hood, it is a pleasant contrast to the farmlands of Cambridgeshire, and if you keep an eye out you may even spot a seal or two. Cambridge itself has a bustling market square and is surrounded by pedestrianised streets lined with stops for every whim. 


Cambridge is perfectly placed for travelling both throughout the UK and Continental Europe. Situated in East Anglia there are excellent road links to the North, West and London and the M25 (London Orbital). London is less than an hour by train from Cambridge, with direct services to Kings Cross station where the new St Pancras Eurostar terminal is located. Want cheap flights? Europe’s cheapest airlines (such as Ryanair and EasyJet) fly to hundreds of destinations from Amsterdam to Zaragoza with the major discount airports, London Stansted (approx. 40 minutes drive or 55 minutes by the National Express bus service that runs every 30 minutes) and London Luton (approx. 1 hours drive or 1 hour 25 by National Express bus service running every few hours) easily accessible from Cambridge.

Teaching in Cambridge is truly an enlightening experience! If you are keen to teach in Cambridge simply click here to register with Protocol Education.
