Who we’re looking for

While we’d love to help everyone who wants to launch a career in Hungary, we’ve got to follow the rules. So, as Hungarian employment laws state, this program is only open to applicants who:

Are a graduate from the UK, the US, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand or Australia

Have a TEFL certificate. Don’t worry if you don’t have one yet, we’ll help you get it

Have the funds to pay for the program and associated costs

That’s not all – you’ll also need to be adaptable, resilient, resourceful and open-minded


All you need to know about what’s included

If there’s one thing we believe, it’s that you should never have to pay to work. And with us you won’t have to; but, to be able to offer the support, guidance, training, and resources we’re known for, we require all participants to pay a program service fee.

Program Includes

A teaching job in Hungary upon acceptance by our local partner

Help obtaining a work visa

Online and in-person teacher training and orientation sessions, and 3 weeks initial training at the start of the academic year as well as ongoing training and support within the position

Access to community of teachers

Program Does Not Include


This is for you if you’re…

A resourceful, open-minded graduate looking for a fulfilling teaching adventure

An adventurer at heart who’s keen to explore a new culture

A sociable bee who can’t wait to embark on an trip with a group of likeminded people


Still got questions? See if we can help

Good question. No, Impact Teaching is a UK-based agency that connects students and graduates with schools and teaching placements across the world. We don’t own or operate a school ourselves, but we do know a good (and a bad) one when we see it. We seek reputable partners and provide comprehensive support services to ensure that you can relax in the knowledge that someone’s always got your back.

All visa related fees are to be paid by you, the applicant. We’re here to guide you through the process and ensure you know what you need to do and when you need to do it, in the most efficient, affordable way.

Launching a teach abroad adventure is complicated and time consuming; we’re here to make it easier through start-to-finish support services that help you get a visa, get qualified, settle in, and make the most of your adventure. For our team to be able to do this, we require all participants to pay a program fee. If you want to go it alone, we’re not stopping you, but at Impact Teaching we’re all about simplifying things with placements you can trust.

Easy. We know the schools, the process and the requirements like the backs of our hands. So, we know exactly what to look for in our first-round screening calls. Once you pass this, it’s pretty much a dead cert you’ll get an offer in no time.

Absolutely… we can’t guarantee you’ll be at the same school (we’ve gotta share the awesomeness around), but we can help you find positions in the same city.

If you’re an adventurous native English speaker from the UK, Ireland or the US, and you are a graduate, then there’s no doubt this program is for you. Though you’ll have the full support of our team, you’ll need to be adaptable, resilient and open-minded to succeed in Hungary. If the thought of it excites you, then you’ll do just fine.
