About 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.

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 one-off payments like golden hellos and relocation packages for teachers moving over. 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.
