At Hourglass, we have over 20 years’ combined experience of recruiting from a wide range of overseas countries, including Canada, Ireland Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as many others.

As an overseas trained teacher, we fully appreciate the myriad educational, cultural and social experiences that you can bring to UK schools and we make every effort to communicate this clearly to our client schools.

When we submit your details to our client schools, we do not offer your application as a second best alternative to a UK trained teacher, but as a highly advantageous, inspired addition to a school’s most valuable resource, its teaching staff.
