Impact Teachers

Impact was founded on the principle of creating outstanding schools and acquiring passionate teachers who can engage and inspire students both locally and globally. We’re not like other teaching agencies in the UK, we do more and that’s why our teachers recommend us.

However, our purpose is not just limited to finding talented teachers and cultivating outstanding schools, we’re the only teaching agency in the UK to provide invaluable development opportunities; during term breaks we run overseas teaching training programmes in Uganda and India. Upon returning, we establish links between classrooms in order to highlight the diversity of cultures and teaching, in the hope that everyone can become a global citizen. Our programs are incredible, free (besides the flight & Visa) and designed by our in-house travel and education specialists. We’ve been managing these programs for almost 10 years and have made visible, sustainable improvements in both our UK schools and those in India and Uganda.
