Registering in Canada

Why register in Canada?

Here is the registration process broken down for those registering in Canada for UK teaching jobs. Most of our teachers register with us prior to departing for the UK, as we can help in many ways with your relocation.

There are many reasons to register with Protocol Education while you are still in Canada. Firstly…it’s free to register with Protocol Education. If you are not yet sure about registering, please send an UK teaching information request to us.


Step one - Initial Registration

Our first conversation with you after your online registration will be to chat to you about your experience, skills; and eligibility for a working visa. We’ll advise you as to the best time to go to get the most out of your UK teaching experience

Step two - The Paperwork

We will send you an initial email outlining all of the requirements for registering with Protocol Education to teach in the UK and send you all relevant forms for you to complete.

Step three - The Interview

Once you have completed the forms, we will conduct an interview with you (either by phone, Skype or face to face – depending on your location). This interview helps us to understand more about your skills as teacher and match you to the right opportunities in the UK. We will discuss locations, availability of work and market conditions with you. We’ll also fill you in on things that we help you with on arrival ie. UK bank accounts, accommodation, travel advice, National Insurance and maximising your take home pay by offsetting your expenses against your income. 

Step Four - Preparation for UK Classrooms

We will suggest various websites for you to look at in order to familiarise yourself with the UK education system, National Curriculum, schemes of work and resources available to UK teachers.

Step Five - Nearly There

We clear your file, we contact your referees, verify your qualification, process your UK Police Check Application.

Step Six - Off You Go!

Once your file is cleared, you are eligible to start teaching in the UK.  We book you your UK induction, send you your SIM card and answer any last minute questions you might have along the way.

The length of time from initial online registration to Step Six varies greatly, so it's best to register as soon as you are thinking about teaching in the UK.
