Your teaching contract - Bounce Teachers

We have so many exciting teaching opportunities for you here at Bounce Teachers, but before we find the perfect role for you, it’s important to understand what type of work you are looking for. This may be a long-term contract in one school or substitute teaching (daily ‘supply’ or ‘relief’ teaching) in different schools.

Permanent School Contract

If you’re relocating on the Skilled Worker Visa (formerly the Tier-2 General Work Visa), you’ll immediately be placed on a permanent school contract. You will be put on the school’s payroll system and paid monthly. Your contract will include sick leave, holiday pay and more.

If you start on a long-term contract in a school, you will likely be offered a permanent school contract after either the first academic term or at the end of the academic year.

Long Term Contract

Long term contracts will typically be two terms (six months) or three terms (one academic year) long, depending on what time of year you start teaching with us in London.
