Hiring Foreign Education Professionals | Nation.better

Recruit world-class education professionals from around the world

At Nation.better, we make sponsoring foreign educators a simple and stress-free experience.

Today, education institutions across the UK are experiencing a severe shortage of qualified professionals given the limitations in the local talent pool and the increasing demand for high-quality education.

The silver lining for education institutions is that they can now turn to the international labour market to hire qualified and experienced educators to fill core skill shortages.

While the benefits of doing so are clear, the process, itself, can be complex, arduous and stressful. That’s why the right sponsorship services and solutions—from application support to long-term compliance management—can simplify this journey.

Common recruitment challenges in the education industry

What’s the process of hiring foreign educators in the UK?

  • Obtaining the sponsor licence

    You can become a licenced sponsor by submitting your completed sponsor licence application and the required documentation and paying the licence fee to the UKVI.

  • Conducting right-to-work checks

    As an employer, you must ensure that your prospective employees are eligible to work in the UK by conducting physical or online right-to-work checks before hiring them.

  • Issuing the CoS to selected candidates

    Once eligible education professionals are selected, you must issue a CoS to your recruits to help them complete the Skilled Worker visa process.

  • Welcoming and onboarding international educators

    Upon the arrival of your selected candidates to the UK, you need to ensure that you maintain your compliance as a sponsor employer for the duration of their employment.

Easy. Having been through this before with other immigration service providers that over complicate the process and charge high fees, Nation.better through innovative ways made the usual painful and stressful experience full of confidence and care. Highly recommended.
