Overseas trained teachers

Overseas trained teachers (OTTs) are a valuable source of skills and experience for your school. Confident, adaptable and enthusiastic, they add an exciting new perspective for your pupils.

We’ve helped schools to make successful overseas appointments for more than 15 years and, when you appoint an OTT through Protocol Education you know they will be prepared for the role and well looked after during their move to the UK. Teachers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Ireland are given a full induction on their arrival in the UK. Additionally, they are given the opportunity to attend training specifically designed for teachers new to the UK, helping them to bridge any gaps in their curriculum knowledge or their practice, and making sure they hit the ground running.


Video interviews

Our Video Interview portal makes it even easier to find the right people to join your staff. Simply choose interviewees from our selection of online ‘Link’ profiles, then arrange a time to speak with the teacher directly via Skype and judge their suitability for your role. We’ll guide you through every step of the process to ensure that your overseas appointment is a complete success.
