International teacher recruitment and sourcing

The International Teaching Partnership (ITP) sources high-quality British curriculum teachers for both UK and international schools. It does this via established candidate channels from across the commonwealth.

With an in-depth understanding of the international schools’ sector, ITP is perfectly placed to advise schools about the leading talent available.

ECT Recruitment

The ECT Partnership is exclusively focused on identifying, assessing, selecting and supporting ECTs for their induction year.

By working with schools, ECTP has supported schools in securing the very best talent for their next generation of teachers.

Support doesn’t stop with the placement of an ECT in a school. ECTs on assignment are provided with one year’s free access to over 30 mobile-friendly distance learning courses to support their classroom skills development from our training company, Thirsty Scholars Partnership.

Training the next generation of teachers

The Teacher Training Partnership delivers a unique school-based paid route into teaching with a PGCE with QTS. This can be delivered to both to existing school staff, and candidates sourced via The Teacher Training Partnership, allowing you to both upskill your staff and bring new talent into your school.

We work with a TEF Gold university to provide the qualification and can utilise the apprenticeship levy to further save costs.

This innovative solution has allowed passionate and committed educators to enter the profession by removing the barriers of cost and loss of earnings.
