“Footprints took away all the stress of trawling the net. They were organized and efficient.”

Jeremy Cain

“A massive heartfelt thank you to all of you guys at Footprints for making everything about this whole experience such a breeze. It’s almost too funny when I’m talking to other teachers who applied independently – the looks on their faces as I tell them how I had no troubles, got everything sorted on time, and had everything laid out for me in black and white. Teaching abroad is everything I expected it to be and more – challenging, rewarding, hectic, exciting, relaxing; you name it, I’ve experienced it.”
