Guaranteed Work Agreements

Want to start out doing daily cover assignments, but unsure about the certainty of your income? Don't worry! A Guaranteed Work Agreement (GWA) is the option for you.

In a GWA we guarantee you a certain number of days work over a term, and in return, you agree to commit to Protocol Education for the term. If you don't have work for all the guaranteed days by the end of the term, we pay you the difference in a single lump sum.

What’s the catch? There are no catches! You can end the agreement at any time without penalty, or you can take up a long-term role mid-term without losing your guarantee. A GWA simply helps teachers who prefer daily supply to enjoy the same certainty as teachers in long-term roles. Easy as that!

£500 Arrival Bonus

Take a long-term position with a school, or sign up to a Guaranteed Work Agreement for daily supply, before you arrive in the UK and we’ll pay you a £500 bonus at the end of your first term teaching with us. Simple as that!

Link Video Interviews

How would you like to talk directly with UK headteachers to find out what their school can offer you, all from the comfort of your own home? Welcome to Link!

We help you create a 30-second video profile that sets you apart from the crowd, and gives a positive first impression to potential headteachers. The online booking process then makes it easy for headteachers to schedule an interview with you across time zones, and our consultants are on hand to help you to get the most out of your interview.

It’s a quick, easy and effective recruitment process that takes all of the complications out of interviewing for a role before you step on the plane!

Meet your future headteacher before leaving home

Interview with visiting UK headteachers (principals) in your hometown and secure a long-term position before even setting foot on the plane. Early years, primary, secondary and special ed roles are available to start in January, April and September. Interviews take place in Australia and NZ during the September school holidays and in Canada in April.

This has proven to be such a hit that we have the same UK heads coming out to Australia/NZ for the third year running!

Referral Bonus

With such a shortage of teachers in the UK, we're always keen to hear about people who are interested in taking up the call. And, if you refer them to us, we're more than happy to give you a referral bonus as a thank-you.

If you know a teacher who wants to travel to the UK to work, refer them to us and we’ll pay you $100 in vouchers. No need to wait until the teacher has worked a certain number of days. Once they are registered, you'll receive the voucher before you leave. That should help with some of your last-minute supplies!
