Useful Resources

Working in education opens up a wealth of new experiences. Of course, with every new experience there are challenges.

That's why anzuk has provided some handy resources and links to help make the next step in your career journey as simple and rewarding as possible.

The Teaching and Learning Academy is an innovative way of helping teachers and those working in support roles in schools/other educational settings to improve their practice and gain professional recognition for doing so. It is also the UK provider of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

The UK National Curriculum framework provides all teachers with the resources and guidance they require to plan and assess student knowledge across the country. The big benefit to having a National Curriculum is that no matter what school you teach in the core fundamental learning methodologists will be similar and schemes of work should be in place ready for use.

The Department for Education (DfE) is continually changing and updating regulatory policy in the UK. Their website is an excellent source of information and a fantastic point of reference should you wish to gain a great understanding on the "big picture" of Education in the UK.

Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) will be albeit a set of letters for teacher arriving in the UK who have completed their teacher training in a non European Economic Area (EEA). QTS actually is the accreditation all teachers are required to gain should they want to teach in grant maintained schools. For Overseas Trained Teachers (OTT's) QTS will be an accreditation you will need apply for and get only if you are planning to stay for longer than 4 years in the UK.

Term dates in the UK vary from borough to borough and school to school. The best way to get an accurate account on specific term dates in a certain area is by visiting the Direct Gov website. Here you can search for specific term dates depending on the location you are interested in teaching in.

You get treated as a person not a number. When discussing availability of work, everything that was said has been true. I have a no stress enjoyable workspace working with anzuk.
