Gold stars for the Protocol Education Consultants

When I first made my decision to move to the UK, it was one not only the biggest decision I have ever made, but it was also one of the scariest. I decided to move to London as soon as I finished my teacher training. I had heard about Protocol Education from a few friends. I had decided to register with Protocol Education not only because of the great things I had heard from my friends, but because of their amazing consulting team.

I first came over to the UK to teach at the end of September, and my first day was incredibly overwhelming. I was unsure of what to expect and I was terrified to teach for the first time all alone (without an associate teacher). If it were not for the advice and words of encouragement, I do not think I would have continued on.

In December I decided to move to Luton, from East London. I rang the Watford Office and I was introduced to a fantastic consultant who has helped me to find a brilliant school that I am so happy to work at. The entire staff at the Watford branch has always been so incredibly helpful and supportive of the work of their teachers. Moving to Luton was hard at first because, again, like moving to the UK, it was a new place and there was lots to learn all over again. If it were not for the amazing staff at the Watford office, and especially the incredible consultant who I spoke to, I would be completely lost.

The consultants at Protocol Education have helped me and supported me in many different ways in my teaching experiences so far. Whether it is a question about where a school is located, to the team offering advice in a teaching situation, the staff are always willing to lend a hand wherever they can. Protocol Education has made my teaching experience and transition to moving to the UK, a much smoother and more educational experience. I truly believe they deserve a gold star not only for their hard work and dedication, but for their constant effort to make everyone’s day to day teaching experiences easier and ensuring they run as smoothly as they can.

Thanks to the Protocol Education Team!
