We have had a record-breaking year so far in 2017, placing more teachers than ever in some amazing locations. Our Recruitment Advisers have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of them, and sharing in their joy when they received that dream offer. In this week’s blog, we look at some inspiring feedback from a few of the teachers we have helped on their international adventure this year.


Harriet Kilvington-ShawHarriet is moving to Hong Kong!

“I uploaded all my details to the teacher horizons site. Then I had a short chat with Anisha about what I was looking for and who would be coming with me. Having completed this process it was really easy, as I could just say that I wanted to go for a job without having to fill in endless applications again. This is great when you are really busy with your current job at the same time!

Using Teacher Horizons was great because it took the tediousness out of applications. You just have to focus on making one good application for the site and from that, they can recommend you to many schools. You also have someone to help you chase up schools if they are being slow getting back to you.

I am so excited to move to a bigger school and live in Hong Kong.”

Donna WatsonDonna is coming to join us here in Cambodia!

“The Teachehorizons website was great to spark my interest in the opportunities that exist all over the world. It provided a lot of information on the school, the country and other details too. The response time was very fast and the registration process couldn’t have been easier.

Tiffany from Teacher Horizons was the most amazing support. She was friendly and approachable and was happy to talk through my thinking and provide assistance in links or other people to speak to. She was quick to respond and was fair in trying to sort things out between schools and me. She took a real interest in me as a person and finding the best place for me, not just finding me a job.

I am now looking forward to working in a positive environment in a beautiful country.”

Chris SaundersChris is going to teach in China!

“My Recruitment Adviser, Maggie, was amazing. She had great knowledge of the area and the schools and she made me feel very comfortable and confident from our first email to our skype call and after that. TH worked really hard promoting my CV and getting me an interview at a wonderful school in Eastern China.

I recommend using Teacher Horizons 100 percent times 50. I have mentioned them to many of my current colleagues so that they can benefit from the excellent service.

The move can’t come quick enough, I would start tomorrow ideally. Every day I’m thinking about my family and our new life in China, watching YouTube videos about the local area and doing some light reading. I have also starting to plan some new projects to teach when I get there.”

Melissa Diehl (1)Melissa is moving to Lebanon!

“Caroline from Teacher Horizons went above and beyond, helping me identify appropriate roles and counselling me in times of doubt! I felt a high degree of professionalism that I haven’t experienced with any other agency. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to her for her patience and support throughout this process.

I would recommend Teacher Horizons to other educators, because of their positive and encouraging approach to teacher recruitment. I feel confident that they are representing excellent schools and they have the teachers’ best interest in mind.

I can’t wait to work in Lebanon, in an intellectually challenging environment with forward thinking educators.”
