Your dream role is out there. We’d love to help you find it.

Teaching is a career that can really take you places. You can travel internationally and experience different cultures, all while developing your career. No matter where you long to teach or wherever you see yourself going, you can take the first step at the Tes International Jobs Fair.

It’s your chance to meet a host of international schools, who are looking to hand-pick exceptional teachers, just like you. We understand it’s a big decision to decide to teach overseas – it’s not just moving jobs, but moving your whole life – we’re here to inspire and connect you with the right opportunities.

During this interactive session, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the many ways that diversity strengthens the international school community.

Specifically designed to give you an understanding of the SEND code of practice. During the session, you’ll develop an understanding of two specific conditions - ASC and ADHD. You’ll leave with an awareness of the difficulties students may face and strategies, linked to the Autism Act and the SEND code of practice, to aid learning.

FAQs

What do I need to do before the event?

Before the event, we'll try to match you with vacancies the schools attending are recruiting for. If you get matched, schools may contact you to pre-arrange interviews with you on the day.

If you don't have any pre-arranged interviews, don’t worry - you'll be able to meet and chat with schools at the event and many of their interviews will be arranged over the course of the day.

Please complete the following steps if you'd like to be matched with roles and attend interviews at the event:

  1. Go to My CV in your Tes account
  2. Tick the box at the top of your My CV to say you would like to be contacted about opportunities that match My CV and interests. If you do not tick this box, we cannot match you with any roles or propose you to any schools.
  3. Complete My CV in your Tes account. We'll use this to match you with roles and it'll be shared with the schools you match with.

Who should attend?

This event is primarily for qualified teachers with an interest in teaching overseas. There may be some SLT roles available, but the vacancies will mostly be for teaching roles. We will email all attendees a list of vacancies before the fair, so they can make sure there are roles they are interested in.

What times do I need to be at the event?

You may arrive at any time between 10am and 2pm on Saturday 11 January. The schools will be in the Exhibition Area throughout the day, ready to meet you and talk about their available roles. The event closes at 4pm, however, you may leave at any time.

You will only need to attend on Sunday 12 January if a school has invited you to come back for an interview on that day.

How do I get there?

The venue entrance is just off Upper Street; for the best directions launch the location in Google Maps. The entrance on Liverpool Road is for loading only and does not allow access for pedestrians. 

Public Transport

The nearest tube station, Angel (Northern line), is a five minute walk away allowing you to travel to the Central London within minutes. Just a little further in the opposite direction is Highbury and Islington with great underground and overground connections.

Parking

Upper Street Car Park is located next to the Business Design Centre and Hilton Hotel and you can pre-book here.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your ticket with you as well as a pen and some paper if you would like to take part in the CPD sessions. You can show your ticket on your phone or bring a printed version. 

Make sure you have fully completed your Tes My CV before Saturday and ticked the box to allow us to contact you about opportunities. If you are speaking with a school about a role you’re interested in, simply give them your Tes ID (which we will provide you with when you arrive at the event) or scan their QR code to share your Tes My CV with them - there is no need to bring a printed CV.

What should I wear?

As you may be interviewing for roles on the day, we would recommend dressing smartly (and comfortably).

Will there be any refreshments?

Refreshments will not be available within the event areas, however, there are plenty of options available in the local area - take a look.

Can I bring my family with me?

We know that moving overseas is a big decision, and one that involves the whole family, so please feel free to bring your partner or spouse with you on the day.

Please be aware, however, there won't be facilities provided for children at the fair.
