Information For Schools

Hallam Teaching School Alliance and Randstad have been commissioned by the DfE to recruit a pool of well qualified maths and physics teachers from America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. If you have identified difficulties in recruiting maths or physics teachers for September 2018 or January 2019, or if you want to broaden your pool of applicants for your vacancies at no extra cost, register your interest by emailing stem@hallamtsa.co.uk

Randstad will screen applicants with a rigorous interview process to identify high quality applicants. Hallam TSA will then match an international applicant to your vacancy. You decide whether to interview the applicant as part of your normal interview process (usually via Skype).

What do you need to do?
1. Pay the cost of the VISA (usually up to £600).
2. Provide a mentor for the international applicant.
3. Commit to providing appropriate CPD for the international applicant    during their employment.

What you might expect at interview?

The interview process is your opportunity to shine!

  • There are differences between the expectations made of teachers in different countries, but most will be centred around the 2012 Teachers Standards (see below).
  • There may be scenario-type questions "What would you do if...."
  • Additionally, most teachers are expected to teach during the selection process and you may be asked to produce a video of one of your lessons.
  • There may be aspects of the role which will be new to you (being a form tutor, for example) which you can be assured employing schools will cover during the acclimatisation conference.
  • And don't forget to mention if you are a baseball coach, student counsellor or a musician and how you can contribute to the wider ethos of the school.

If you want to talk further about the nature of school interviews, please contact stem@hallamtsa.co.uk to schedule a phone call.

Life in England
Getting Around In England

If your new to England or haven't been for a while here are some links to tips and advice on how to get from A to B in your new home.

In England the distance between places is short relative to the countries you will be coming from.

If you are driving on English roads we suggest you study our rules which are gathered in The Highway Code. These do not cover the whole of the driving legislation but they are a good start.

Most places are accessible by our good public transport network. If you intend to travel by train it is easy to become confused by the number of pricing options. As a rule of thumb it is usually cheaper to buy your ticket in advance.

Cost of Living

The cost of living for even basic items can vary between countries. There are differences in England and it is generally recognised that you get more for your money in the North, with accommodation in particular considerably cheaper than in London.
