Gearing up for January 2017

Mitch Jones is one of Protocol Education's Australian based recruitment consultants. In this latest blog, he talks about the massive demand for Aussie teachers in the UK - and how much work there is in England!


This week marks the start of a new academic year in Britain, however we’re already now looking to staff positions across England to start in their second term from January 2017! The September period was easily one of our busiest on record – and definitely the busiest in my 8 years with Protocol. We simply couldn’t keep up with the demand from schools; we had more positions available than we had teachers! Hard to imagine when in most major areas of Australia teachers are crying out for work; it is the opposite situation in England – schools are crying out for teachers!

With just about 4 months to go until the start of Term 2 in England I am putting out an S.O.S for any teacher – Primary, Secondary or Special Needs – who is looking for full time or casual work. If you are sick of doing the casual school dance in your home state and want to really develop your career, then there really is no better option at this stage than England. The curriculum is similar, the culture is similar and the work is there – we just need teachers like you! Doesn’t matter if you’re a Primary teacher, English, PE, Maths, Geography or Dance – we need you to help staff daily, short term & full time vacancies in London and across the rest of England.

We’re looking for teachers of all subject areas for all types of schools; state/government, private/independent and religious schools too. Whatever your preference is we’ll find the right role for you!

If you are interested in interviewing with some schools over the coming weeks then we need to hear from you; just get in touch with your relevant consultant to ask questions and see what jobs are out there.

NSW, Act & Tasmania: Mitch
QLD & the Northern Territory: Dennis
Victoria, SA & WA: Sam


On the other hand if you’re happy to travel over to the UK and try out some schools first then casual relief teaching (or 'supply teaching') is definitely the go – and we can keep you busy 5 days per week! You can find out more about casual relief teaching in the UK here; you can also find out about our guaranteed causal work agreements here.


Whether you're a new graduate, inexperienced or experienced teacher; we would love to hear from you. You can submit a quick online inquiry, contact the local team or apply directly on our website and we can chat with you about getting up & running for work in England!
