Departure Checklist

So, you have made the decision to teach in the UK! Protocol Education would like to help you get everything sorted.

In the weeks and months leading up to your departure your Australian consultant will ensure that all of the relevant paperwork is in place to help you start teaching as soon as you are ready. To summarise, here is a quick snapshot of the essentials you need to take with you on your trip:

  • Your current passport
  • Valid work visa
  • If you’re travelling on the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa, be sure to take your ‘decision letter’ with you so you can collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) Unsure about visas? Get some help here!
  • Details of your UK office induction meeting (don’t worry – we’ll send them to you!)
  • Flight details
  • Your original Australian police check

Don't forget that we help you with every step of the paperwork process; if you are unsure about what is required please contact us!

We hope this check-list helps you get ready for the big move! If you have any questions about the above, please contact your local Australian consultant on
