Spotlight on Nottingham

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!

About Nottingham

Nottinghamshire's heritage is rich and diverse, from the past to present well known individuals have resided in our region.
From well loved outlaw Robin Hood, literary great Lord Byron, footballing hero Brian Clough to international designer Paul Smith, our heroes are legendary.

With two of the UK’s leading universities, numerous further education colleges and 370 schools, Nottinghamshire is top of the class for all levels of educational achievement. In fact, Nottingham itself boasts the third largest student population in England.

Fans of sport will find much to interest them in and around Nottinghamshire, here they can visit the oldest football club in the world Notts County FC or experience the thrilling atmosphere of The City Ground, home to the double winning European Cup winners - Nottingham Forest. We also have the world famous cricket ground Trent Bridge home to One-day internationals and County cricket matches.

category_id of work and schools

Nottingham office covers both Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire schools. We have both small rural schools, large community schools and a number of high achieving schools. Day to day supply can lead to ongoing work within a number of schools and also the opportunity for long term work. Some areas also have schools teaching children with special needs, so if you are special needs trained or experienced then we can definitely look after you for work!

When you receive your first bookings we'll ensure we'll give you as much support and information as possible about the school, where they are, how to get there, what age range you'll be teaching, what the class is like and also what the feedback has been from other teachers that have taught there.

The national curriculum is something that you will need to research. Supply teachers are always expected to bring work with them on the day and mark the work set, tidy the classroom and leave a brief handover report - just like back home.


Where to Live 

Most areas have good transport connections and can cover almost all areas of Nottingham in one bus journey. 

Below are a few areas that are very popular with our other overseas trained teachers.

West Bridgford/Edwalton
Woolaton
Lace Market (city Centre)
Mapperley
Sherwood

Cost of living can vary depending on where you live and if you share a house or live on your own. House sharing is the cheapest option, living with another teacher, young professional or even students. Between £200 and £500 a month is an idea of rent. Some accommodations may include bills (gas, electric, water, internet, TV licence..) You may also be required to pay a months rent as a deposit.

Rightmove is a good website for both flats and houses - www.rightmove.co.uk or try www.spareroom.co.uk


Culture
Nottingham is the cultural and commercial capital of the East Midlands. Its vibrant, cosmopolitan city centre is a first choice destination for business, entertainment and nightlife.
Entertainment looms large in Nottingham's variety of attractions. Theatre lovers are well catered for with the Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall which showcase theatre, comedy, ballet and opera; the Nottingham Playhouse which produces more new drama than any other British theatre outside London; and the independent Lace Market Theatre with its full range of amateur productions. In the summer, outdoor performances can be found in the grounds of Nottingham Castle and Newstead Abbey.
Film buffs can enjoy popular film at the 14-screen cinema in the city-centre Cornerhouse complex, or independent and world cinema at the Broadway Media Centre. Nottingham has also become a major centre for music, with large venues at the Royal Concert Hall and the Nottingham Arena, and well-established clubs such as Rock City and The Bomb attracting big names from every style of music imaginable.

Nightlife
Nottingham's nightlife is as legendary as its local hero, Robin Hood. From the oldest pub in Britain to the most fashionable of bars, Nottingham has something for everyone. In fact, legend has it that the city centre offers a different pub, club, bar or restaurant for every night of the year.
Nottingham has a good choice of restaurants from Jamie Oliver’s Italian, Yo Sushi, World Service, to the only Michelin starred restaurant in Nottingham Sat Bains. Whilst elsewhere there are a number of Spanish tapas bars, Mexican, French, Greek, Arabic and a number of superb Curry Houses..

Shopping
People in Nottingham love to shop! Having consistently been ranked as one of the UK’s leading retail centres, the city has earned an enviable reputation for excellent shopping facilities – particularly for fashion, Paul Smith sets the tone for this fashion-conscious city with his original store in Byard Lane

Relaxing
As a break from the pace of city life, the region offers access to beautiful rural scenery with just 45 mins drive and you are in the heart of the picturesque Derbyshire Dales.
Or if you’d prefer to visit historic buildings, we have Nottingham Castle, Newstead Abbey (home of writer and poet Lord Byron), Southwell Minster and Wollaton Hall.
Nottinghamshire's more well-known attractions, of course include Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest and the historic Goose Fair, held every October.


If you are looking for a supportive and enriching teaching experience during your time in the UK in an area that can offer low costs of living and in traditional English surroundings then Nottingham is an area that should be considered. But don’t take our word for it; feel free to contact your local consultant in Australia to discuss the immediate teaching opportunities and the schools who would be keen to offer regular supply or something more permanent.
