Living in Northern Ireland

There are plenty of reasons to consider teaching in Northern Ireland. There’s an excellent education system, a world-class healthcare service and very affordable property. Property prices in Northern Ireland remain well below those in other UK locations and in the Republic of Ireland.  Communities are the friendliest in Northern Ireland, with 72% described the people in local community as very or extremely friendly. Teachers here are also most likely to spend spare time doing outdoor activities or exercise.

Stats based on an April 2019 Tes survey of over 2800 teachers in the UK and ABC finance.

Things to do

When you’re not teaching, the great outdoors will be on your doorstep where you’ll discover dramatic coastlines, castles, mountains, lakes, water sports, walking trails, scenic drives and historical landmarks.

From walking in the footsteps of Game of Thrones to the historic walled city of Derry and learning more about the building of the ill-fated Titanic, not to mention the stunning Giant’s Causeway – there’s a something to keep you occupied in every corner of Northern Ireland.
