Apply with Footprints

You are not a number, you are a teacher. Expect to be treated like one. We work closely with our candidates to ensure you have the best experience possible teaching abroad. We work hard to ensure every teacher has a positive experience teaching overseas.

Footprints Mentorship Program

The decision to teach overseas is a big one – we understand – we’ve also taught abroad.  Once we find you a job, we pair you with an experienced teacher currently teaching abroad who will answer your questions about living and working in another country.

Pre-Departure Packages

Before we send you abroad to teach English in another country, we give our teachers pre-departure packages full of travel information, language material and more.  An informed teacher is a satisfied teacher.  Our commitment to you as a member of the Footprints community starts with finding you a job and continues for the duration of your contract teaching overseas.

Teacher Social Events

Footprints staff regularly travels to the countries where we place teachers. While abroad we visit the schools where our teachers work and we host social events where our teachers can get together.  We also offer social media forums for our teachers and regularly conduct contests for our teachers.

Footprints is the leader in international teacher recruiting for a reason. Our goal is to find you a great job teaching abroad – for free.  We don’t charge candidates for our services and we don’t try to sell you courses you may not need. We just place you overseas in a great job and support you every step of the way.
