Jobs for Canadian & American Teachers in London, UK

Happy 2010 everyone! I hope this year proves to be your most exciting, adventurous and prosperous yet.

Here at Classroom Canada, and Classroom America, Linda and I are interviewing teachers & teaching assistants who wish to teach in London, England from April/May and September/October 2010.

If you are a Canadian or American teacher and are interested in teaching abroad, please check these sites first to make sure you are eligible to work in the UK:

*Please note -if the links for the visas don't work, just follow the links as you get redirected. You will find the visas eventually.

We are specifically looking for teachers and teaching assistants to start this April & May 2010 as well as September and October 2010:
  • Primary positions (ages 3-11) - ideal candidates will have experience across the ages.
  • Secondary positions (ages 12-16) - ideal candidates will have at least 2 teachable subjects, and a strong desire to teach a wide range of subjects outside of their teachable subjects.
  • Special Educational Needs Positions - ideal candidates will have a passion for teaching all abilities and backgrounds and an open mind.  Extra courses are not necessary, but will certainly help.
  • Teaching Assistants - work one on one and in small groups with children of varying abilities. Ideal candidates will have an ECE degree, or a BA/BSC with a view to attending teachers college in the near future.  Experience with children is a must.
Positions range from daily supply, to short term contracts (a couple of weeks or more) to long term contracts (one to two years).  The vast majority of our teachers start in daily supply teaching and within a few months find full-time employment in schools they would like to work in.  This is the key to success in inner city London.

Still not sure?  Check out the Coffee Time interviews at the right hand side of this page to see what our teachers have to say about their experiences with us.
