    Just want some advice. I really want to teach in the US but unsure how to go about it. I’ve jus signed up to participate and entered all my details but wondering how reliable this is? Also is there anyone who is from the UK and currently teaching in the US who can offer support and advice of how they got over there??

    Thanks x

    I went through Participate 4 years ago and spent 3 years in North Carolina. It was a pretty long process but they were very supportive and actually do a lot of leg work for you. Aside from Participate you can apply to British schools but they are very tricky to get into and you likely need to know someone already working in one.

    I see you posted this 28th Dec so hopefully you’ve heard from Participate by now but if not, email them to follow up. I did and I had a phone interview a week later :).

    Hopefully this helps! Good luck!
