International STEM Recruitment 

Following a successful pilot last year in the South-East region, a new DfE-funded programme is now being rolled out across the North to support schools to fill teacher vacancies by bringing across experienced Maths and Physics teachers from the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to work in the UK.

This programme is a collaboration between the DfE and the Teaching Schools Council (TSC) working with the Great North Maths Hub and Prospero Teaching to recruit, support and place international Maths and Physics Teachers in the North of England in 2018/19.

Schools and academies in the North of England can benefit from this unique, exciting, government-funded, school-led network initiative. The DfE are funding the services; recruitment, teacher CPD and acclimatisation for which there is no charge to participating schools.

Schools will be required to pay the teachers salary as a member of staff.

In-school mentoring should be offered by the school.

We will only collect and use personal data as described below:

For schools – we will record staff contact names and email addresses on a secure server in order that we can share information with you about the programme. We will also pass on contact details to Prospero, our DfE appointed recruitment agency partner.

For potential candidates – we will retain your curriculum vitae containing personal information in order to make recruitment/placement recommendations.
