Wales jobs

Have you ever considered teaching in Wales? With a perfect blend of beautiful coastlines and sporting culture, Wales is the perfect destination for teachers looking for a variety of career option along with a good work-life balance.

Teaching in Wales

The beauty of teaching is that it’s a skill you can take anywhere. Many Welsh schools are now actively recruiting teachers who can bring their experience from the rest of Britain to Wales. School spirit is different between all schools, but making the move to a different culture all together can really allow you to shine.

While England is moving increasingly to a model of free schools and academies, the schools in Wales continue to strengthen their ties with local communities, with the Welsh government looking to recruit 50,000 teachers by 2024. With so many Welsh schools actively recruiting, some can consider enhancements and relocation packages for teachers moving into Wales. Furthermore, Wales and England share the same pay scale for schools so crossing the Severn doesn’t mean a pay cut.

If you are looking for an opportunity to nurture young people academically and socially to really make an impact, teaching in Wales could be the career for you.

About Wales

As well as the stunning rural countryside that Wales is renowned for, Wales has 870 miles of beautiful coastline which is enjoyed by ramblers, mountain bikers and surfers alike. In terms of sport, Wales is famous for its rugby, football and motorsports. The Welsh capital, Cardiff is known for the Welsh Millennium centre which is home for the arts in Wales, hosting theatre, music and performance. Not only could a move to Wales significantly improve your ‘daily grind’, your options for weekend fun in gorgeous places are countless. It’s also worth checking the local area’s housing market for both renting and buying around the schools you’re considering. The cost of living even in Cardiff is significantly lower than in London, with the average rent being around 75% lower.
