Engage Education are a dynamic recruitment organisation based in Dublin city centre specialising in providing Irish teachers with short and long term contract positions across England. With a strong base of experienced consultants, we place huge emphasis on treating every teacher individually and select only the ideal environments according to suitability. Engage Education are also the founders of the much acclaimed ‘iday’, a specialist education recruitment event that gives Irish teachers the unique opportunity to fly to England for free and interview with a number of schools on the same day and at the same location.
Over 1,350 primary and secondary schools across the UK are currently recruiting teachers for full-time posts and are looking to meet with Irish-trained teachers at our 2015 iday events at which these schools interview.
Teachers selected to attend the event are flown to the UK for the four-day event. During this time, they will have the opportunity to interview with up to 8 UK principals for full-time posts starting in September. They will be invited to a free CPD day run by education leaders and have the opportunity to visit schools before accepting a post. All positions will offer probation/induction to newly qualified teachers and progression to experienced teachers. All travel and accommodation expenses for the four-day event are covered by Engage Education. As this is a bespoke event designed to offer a tailored interview schedule to all candidates, over 90% of teachers will be offered positions.
