We know our teachers
Matching the right teacher with the right school is something we take very seriously. Because our Consultants spend so much time getting to know our teachers, we gain a comprehensive understanding of their backgrounds, goals and career aspirations and can then match them with a school that will benefit from their particular experience and skills.
We have an extensive network of teachers around the world
We know from experience that schools in the UK love teachers from Australia and New Zealand and it is no surprise that those two countries are our biggest source of high-quality teachers looking to move to the UK. There are also some incredible teachers in many other parts of the world that can add some amazing, diverse experience to your team. Our initial vetting makes sure that we only work with those teachers whose qualifications and experience are suitable for the UK.
Our extensive network includes teachers at all levels of Primary and Early Years, Secondary, SEN and Leadership.
I was given the opportunity to travel to Brisbane (Australia) to recruit teachers for the UK. It was a fantastic experience – every aspect of our there was flawlessly managed. I was surprised by the variety of candidates on offer, the experience the candidates had and the professional development they had undertaken during their careers before our interviews. The service offered by Point To Point was of great value for the schools in our trust and the trust itself. I would recommend any school or trust invest in this opportunity.

We stand by our service
As part of our service we include a teacher-induction day every term, a school visit to meet with the Headteacher and placed teacher/s in the first 4 weeks of employment, and a 30-day free replacement period on permanent placements. This gives you 30 days to integrate the teacher, induct them into your school, observe them in the classroom and give feedback. In the highly unlikely scenario that a teacher is not a good match for your school, we will replace them at no extra cost.
We are endorsed by the Department for Education
We are proud to be endorsed by the DfE to resource and supply overseas-trained teachers to schools in England. Part of our Consultant team is dedicated to the recruitment of STEM teachers who qualify for the DfE STEM Programme and we have experience working with and successfully placing some amazing teachers under this programme from all the qualifying countries (Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Jamaica, and South Africa).
