Schools that enroll on the programme are able to access qualified teachers that could teach Spanish, French or German and consider them for their school. Contracts are initially for one year with an option to review annually for up to three years.

The programme enabled us to recruit an outstanding teacher who had been through a robust and rigorous assessment process last year. It has enabled us to develop a strong foundation for Spanish teaching which was introduced into our curriculum this year. I would strongly recommend to any school, taking on a teacher through the programme. The support and professional development provided to teachers throughout the year has enabled them to succeed in a UK school. There has been a very strong sifting, interviewing and moderation process to ensure we get teachers who are ready to teach in our schools.

Kamal Hanif, CEO at Waverley Education Foundation Trust

I have been an English Foreign Language (EFL) teacher in my country for many years and always wanted to help and promote not only my increasingly popular language, Spanish, but also my rich and appealing culture by teaching abroad. The Visiting Teachers Programme gave me the wonderful opportunity of making my wish come true and I have been able to live this incredibly rewarding experience here in Waverley School. I have learned about the British Education System and I have met the most professional teachers and extraordinary human beings here. Since my very first day here I was supported, respected and highly regarded, and I now feel part of the Waverley family.

They will also receive an in-school mentor and Continuing Professional Development that will support their transition, develop their skills and provide your school with a classroom-ready teacher.

peace of mind.

All supplied teachers are tested to B2 level as standard for their English language proficiency. They are also put through several stages of assessment including a rigorous interview process with school leaders of English schools before being shortlisted to come and work in the UK.

As well as the interview process, teachers will be assessed on behaviour management, resilience, their English language and teaching Spanish as a MFL teacher.
