There is always a lot to learn, new foods to try and new cultures to experience. Teachers in the UK come from every corner of the planet.

      Access to technology: In the year 2000, a significant fund was allotted to revamp the education system in the UK. With the help of these funds, classrooms were given a makeover with smartboards and other technological innovations to aid and improve teaching methods. Many of the schools in the UK provide teachers with a variety of resources to make the teaching experience more enjoyable for both the teacher and the students.
