Organisations we support
We are proud to support and recommend the following organisations.
Teacherhorizons are supporters of the International Baccalaureate programme. Many of the best international schools offer the IB curriculum and we really encourage you to find out more about this qualification.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit international educational foundation which provides three educational programmes which are the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).
It aims to build the students' interpersonal skills to enable them to thrive and succeed in the fast moving society of today. This prestigious Diploma programme is recognised by the majority of universities around the world.
Kuvu Tutors is the world's first fully online tutoring company aimed exclusively at international high school students involoved in programmes such as IGCSE, International A-Level and the IB Diploma.
Kuvu have a bespoke, state-of-the art video platform, which allows them to provide live one-to-one tutorial support, and run online events to larger audiences. If you’re a qualified and experienced teacher, we’d love to hear from you. Our tutors work whenever and wherever they want, earn very lucrative hourly rates, and make a real difference to the learning experience of international students throughout the globe.
Health Insurance, home insurance, income protection and travel insurance are all big concerns for the International School Teacher. We can highly recommend the services provided by JBI Insurance Brokers. They know the sector very well and best of all, you won't pay more than market rates using their services but have the support and impartial advice of a very experienced team.
JBI have been independent insurance brokers for over 30 years. They pride themselves on their customer services and professional advice to international schools, individual/ family and groups. Their clients do not pay for their advice or services and all quotes provided are on a no- obligation basis. Please contact them for your insurance needs or visit their website www.jbionline.com

Fancy a change in your current teaching career but want to stay in teaching? This may be something of interest and we can highly recommend the following organisation:
TEFL TOULOUSE is the only teacher training centre in South West France to offer an externally accredited, 4-week intensive TEFL Course, with 6 hours observed teaching practice. We operate from within our own language school in the main shopping street in Toulouse. Trainees come from a wide range of backgrounds, from disillusioned UK teachers, to recent Univiersity graduates who want to travel the world teaching English to make ends meet, or people seeking to make some money while they enjoy their retirement in France. The one thing nearly everyone has in common is that they are fed up with the UK!
There is plenty of work available once the course is over, and many ex trainees set up as freelancers or even set up their own small language teaching operations locally or elsewhere.
Toulouse is a vibrant city of around 500,000 and home to Airbus. The Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pyrennes are all little more than a couple of hours drive away.
For more information and testimonials, see their website www.tefltoulouse.com
