Case Study: From Australia to Southend

Five Aussie teachers take a trip to the seaside – 10,000 miles away – after succeeding in our headteacher interviews

Last year, Protocol Education worked together with the Learning in Harmony Trust to bring UK headteachers to Australia for face-to-face interviews. The Trust consists of schools based in both London and Southend-on-Sea, and while the London schools have had a long standing relationship with Protocol Education, this was the first time the Trust and Protocol Education had worked together to recruit for the schools in Southend.


The headteachers arrived in September of 2016, and after a week of interviewing teachers, the Trust offered roles in their schools to 16 different candidates.

Below, we take a look at the stories of five of those teachers, who have gone on to work and live in Southend.

“We were blown away by the quality of the candidates interviewed... it was clear what an asset many would be in our schools.”

Ashley Eastwood - Principal at the Federation of Greenways Schools
