Getting a teaching position in London
Work hard and play hard as an NQT in London
Living and working in London not only offers a huge selection of potential employers in both the private and state sectors, but it also enables you to experience life in one of Europe’s most exciting capital cities.
With a population of around eight million, London boasts a multitude of ethnic diversity and an exciting mix of cultures which is bound to positively influence the experience of your first teaching post as an NQT.
In the capital city, festivities take place throughout the year to acknowledge different cultural events ranging from Chinese New Year and Diwali to St Patricks Day, Vaisakhi and everything in between.
London has it all
In such a large, cosmopolitan, 24-hour city, you’ll find everything you could wish for and plenty more when looking for NQT jobs. From some of the best shops in the world to fantastic nightlife, restaurants, pubs, bars, museums, galleries, cinemas and theatres, London has it all. Alternatively, when you want a little peace and quiet, you’ll find riverside walks, parks and even the countryside which is not too far away.
Taking all of this into consideration, it’s hardly surprising that when looking for NQT jobs, a lot of new graduates are keen to find work in or around London.
Location, location, location
Some people see London as a series of urban villages and with so many diverse districts, the choice of accommodation is outstanding. Allow plenty of time to seek out your perfect pad but be prepared to compromise between the cheapest areas and the more prestigious, but often financially prohibitive parts of the city. Teaming up with others is often the solution to a happy home life which also brings down costs and can even jumpstart your social network.
