This programme is ideal for recent graduates from UK universities that want to explore building a life as a teacher abroad, but is open to anyone, including mid-career changers, college grads and those from ‘non-traditional’ educational backgrounds. There is extra support available for applicants from widening participation backgrounds, including all funding you may need to make this happen. You will be able to indicate if this applies to you on your application form. 

*We can consider candidates with non-UK university backgrounds and those who do not have the right to work in the UK, but they would not always be eligible for full funding for the TESOL and flights. If this applies to you, please apply and contact us by email to let us know more about your situation.
