Hey Teachers! Teaching Jobs in London, England for January 2009
More and more Canadian and American teachers want to teach in London, England this January. That's great news for us as we need teachers for full-time and part-time teaching, as well as supply teaching work.
It happens every year. Teachers arrive from around the world and we place them into supply teaching or full-time positions. The supply teachers find schools they like and stay on full-time, and then we're once again we need more teachers. January is a fabulous time to arrive if you are thinking about teaching abroad.
In January, the Australians, New Zealanders & South Africans tend to go home. That's summer for them, so they understandably want to go home. For those of us from snowy climates, London's weather is pretty good. It rains a lot (much like British Columbia) but rarely snows. If you're a snow-lover, you can still teach in London and go skiing or snowboarding in Switzerland and France during the school breaks (and there are plenty - click here for more on the school holidays in the UK).
Many North American teachers arrive in January to find themselves teaching right away. Our Canadian teachers have done particularly well and schools are asking for more to start in January 2009. Just today, I was contacted for a Special Needs teacher to start January 5th (grades 4-10) and an English teacher to start January 12th. I have schools asking me for strong primary teachers (grades 1-6), and for all areas of secondary school teaching. Science, Math, English, Religious Education and Gym teachers are very much in demand.
To learn more about specific positions, contact me through the Classroom Canada website.
Be sure to buy the Guide to Teaching in London: A Survival Guide for Canadians (the American edition will be out soon).
