Having taught abroad, we believe it’s the most amazing experience. A chance for adventures, and to live in a new country like a local rather than a tourist. We found absorbing and learning about new countries the best part of teaching abroad; every day offers the chance to learn and get a better understanding of your host country. You’ll get a unique chance to learn about your host country’s culture, society and language by working with students every day. Whether or not a long-term teaching career is one of your objectives, this offers you a chance for this experience to have an impact on the people you work with, and on yourself. More than any specific skill or set of prior experiences, we look for candidates that share our enthusiasm for the potential for growth our teaching jobs and programs offer.
The easy way to find teach abroad programs you can trust
Impact Teaching was founded in 2019, and our key staff members had worked together on our other brand Teach English In China for many years, and helped over a thousand teachers get started in China since 2005. We simplify the selection process and connect you with safe, reliable and legal teaching placements you can trust.
Working together with carefully selected partners in cities around the world, we’re here to make your teach abroad dreams a reality. Experts in their fields and cities, our partners are 100% vetted, approved and recommended – and not only by us: just ask the hundreds of students, teachers and adventurers whose footsteps you’re following in.
A comprehensive service for your peace of mind
We’re here to make your choice as simple and your journey as smooth as possible. Our start-to-finish service allows you to focus on what’s really important: gaining experience, saving money and having an incredible time.
We take care of it all, from pre-departure training, to post-arrival support – and everything in between. Put simply, we deal with the hard parts, so you can spend less time worrying, and more time making your impact.
We love nothing more than connecting you with teach abroad programs and experiences you’ll love. With a mission of making adventures as smooth and reliable as possible, honesty, transparency and community sit at the core of everything we do.
If there’s one thing our experience has taught us, it’s just how important it is to choose the right destination.
We’re not here to trick you into something you won’t enjoy or doesn’t match your aims. We’re all about pointing you in the right direction – whether that’s north, east, south or west.
We offer honest, first-hand advice that’s tailored to you. How else can we ensure you have a truly incredible trip?
Come along to one of our in-person events or give us a ring and take the first step on your adventure.
No quite understands what it’s like to live and work abroad like people who have done it.
If, like us, your parents, friends and basically anyone else you tell can’t wrap their heads around your crazy decision to take the path less travelled, don’t worry. You’re not alone.
Our community is formed of people just as adventurous as you. We all know what it’s like to be discouraged, told to stay put, or worse – to get a real job. And we’re here to share advice, support and, best of all, stories.
Join our online community, come along to an in-person event or join your program’s pre-departure Orientation Day to meet fellow participants, alumni and our team.
Many of our alumni have gone on to pursue successful teaching careers abroad and in their home countries. We work closely with these people to offer a comprehensive training session prior to your departure. Whether you have previous teaching experience or not, you’re sure to learn a thing or two from our experienced team.
You’ll discover games, activities and techniques that will help you take the classroom by storm. What now seems like a daunting prospect will soon become a challenge you’re excited to take on.
