Alumni helping the next generation of teachers
A company set up by education alumni is finding work for the next generation of teachers in the United Kingdom.
Australian teachers were in demand, but the way in which they were recruited and placed into the British education system left UOW alumnus Paul Harris feeling a little under-whelmed. And he wasn’t alone. After a chance meeting with fellow UOW graduate Todd Richardson, in London, the two realised there was a better way of matching Australian teachers with British schools.
Already Vibe Teacher Recruitment has placed around 18,000 teachers into classrooms around Britain and continues to grow year on year.
