3. Apply for international teaching roles

Once you’ve discovered your perfect role we can fast-track your job application. This is one of our unique services as we have developed great relationships with our partners schools around the world. These partner schools rely on our recommendations, so don’t miss out!

Ensure that your Teacher Horizons profile is complete and references are submitted. You’ll then be assigned a personal Teacher Horizons Adviser who will assess if your experience matches the role. If you match what our schools are looking for we can recommend you directly to the school’s principal.

Your Teacher Horizons Adviser will invite you for a video interview to offer you guidance and support. This is an opportunity to share your teaching experience and to receive invaluable advice on how to improve your international teacher profile. We’ll assess your CV and also advise you on obtaining references.

If we fast track you as one of our recommended candidates we’ll also share your profile, CV, references, a video interview clip with a school of your choice. Read our top tips on how to write a good CV for international teaching jobs and how our confidential references work.

What makes Teacher Horizons unique is our honest and personal service. Your Adviser will personally recommend you and support you at every stage of the process.

5. Interview with school

Your Advisor will provide details to you about how to approach the interview, what to research and any other information you’ll need to complete your international teaching job application. Many international schools have at least one online interview and sometimes they will fly you to the school for a face-to-face meeting.

6. Job offered!

If successful, the school will send you a job offer and formal contract directly. Before signing, you should clarify any final questions (eg your timetable, the package etc). Make sure you keep your Advisor in the loop so they can help answer questions, liaise directly with their contacts at the school on your behalf and help you make a final decision that’s right for you.

7. Board the plane!

Congratulations on getting your new international teaching job! You’ll definitely have an invaluable experience both professionally and personally. We are always here to answer questions or advise – even after you have relocated. Most teachers who secure positions thought Teacher Horizons really enjoy the process. In fact, 93% of teachers in a recent survey said they’d recommended us to a friend.
