Classroom America is hitting the road again. This time, we're driving from Seattle to Los Angeles and taking in a few places along the way, including San Francisco and possibly Portland. The dates will be posted next week, but we know the trip will be from September 15-21st at least.
We'll be interviewing American teachers who want to teach in London, England as soon as November 2011 and January 2012. Unfortunately, we're unable to obtain visas for American teachers, so the only teachers we can interview will have:
- an EU passport OR
- a visa to work in the UK (see here for more information: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/working/ but be warned, it's very dificult for teachers to obtain visas under the new points-based system. We cannot sponsor you.)
We are specifically looking for American teachers to work as:
- Primary Teachers (aka Elementary School Teachers) to teach Reception (aka Kindergarten) to Year 6 (Grade 6).
- Secondary Teachers (aka High School Teachers) to teach all subjects. We have more needs for teachers who can teach science, math, ICT, design & technology, physical education, English and Humanities
- Special Educational Needs Teachers - for mild learning disabilities, severe learning disabilities & emotional & behavioural difficulties.
Due to the large volume of applications we receive, we're unable to respond to every application. If we think it's unclear how you will be able to legally work in the UK, you won't receive a response. Best thing to do is make it very clear that you know what you need to do to work there. It's not enough to be American! If you're not sure, see the link: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/working/
We're really excited to do this road trip, and meet the incredible teachers along the way. Don't delay - get your application in right away.
