Teaching in Africa provides an exciting opportunity to not only move forward in your career but to also appreciate a range of geographical experiences, travel in diverse landscapes, and enjoy varied traditions and cultures that are specific to each country and city. At Compass, we have a team in place that has travelled extensively throughout the world and can advise on opportunities that we believe would advance your career and give you a true immersion into the wonderful African continent.


Europe still finds itself at the top of most UK teachers wish list when it comes to looking at teaching abroad. Europe offers a number of vibrant countries to explore, each with its own character, culture, language and opportunities to trave. At the same time, the European climate offers UK citizens a chance to enjoy their downtime in the sun. Whilst this provides an optimistic view for any candidate looking to teach in Europe, it also compounds just how competitive the European teaching market can be. The importance of being registered with an education recruitment agency that most suits you and your career progression is therefore vital
