FAQ for teachers

No. Staffroom is an online marketplace bringing teachers and schools together. Recruiters and job boards traditionally only work for schools. We work for BOTH teachers and schools, helping teachers get hired and schools to fill jobs.

Our platform is totally free for teachers to register and get hired!

We work with all kinds of teachers, from new graduates to experienced veterans. Teaching experience is required, and it's preferable to have a degree also. Schools may also request references from schools you have worked in previously, as well as police checks from every country you have worked in. We can arrange a police check for you if you need it (for a fee). Please email us at [email protected] with the subject: POLICE CHECK.

As we've just launched, it may take a while for you to be contacted by a school. However, as more teachers join, more schools will be encouraged to use our platform, which increases your chances of being hired. New schools are joining weekly and searching for teachers!
Please click on the Refer tab at the top of the page and send the link to our site to your teacher friends, asking them to sign up. The faster we grow, the more schools will join!

We have helped many Non-Native English Speaking teachers get hired - read our testimonials!
Staffroom actively reduces bias in hiring by not showing your photo, name, gender, date of birth, or nationality to schools. Our platform also reduces proxy bias by not showing the name of the university you attended or past schools you worked in. Schools make the decision to contact you based on your subject specialty, degree qualification and years of teaching experience, as well as other non-biased profile criteria.
Schools will reach out to you when they have a vacancy that matches your expertise. You will need a high level of English language skills for most positions. We suggest that if your first language is not English, you aim for a level of IELTS 8+ or equivalent to be successful. Make sure you also take advantage of our free training on interview prep and more, so you have every chance of success.

When you sign in you will be taken to your profile page. You can edit this at any time just by clicking on the pen icon in the circle on the right-hand side of the page. Please keep your preferences and profile status updated so that schools can contact you with jobs that match your preferences.

Awesome! Make sure you take advantage of the free training that we offer before your interview and give yourself the best chance of landing the job. Make sure you leave us a testimonial when you get hired!

Our schools are required by a Code of Conduct to give you feedback within 5 working days after an interview.
If you haven't heard from them, please email us at [email protected] with the subject line NO INTERVIEW FEEDBACK, and we will follow up with the school on your behalf.
We believe every teacher who has invested time and effort in interviewing with a school deserves to get feedback to help them improve.

Awesome! We are so happy for you!
Ask the school for 48 hours to review the offer before you get back to them with your decision. You are not required to accept the offer if it doesn't meet your expectations. We recommend that you discuss the offer and its merits with your family and make the decision that is most appropriate for you.
Please respond to the school within 48 hours and advise them of your decision. If you plan to decline the offer, do so politely with the reason/s why. They may be willing to negotiate, however, be aware that many schools are bound by a salary and benefits scale. Regardless, always be polite and keep the door open for future opportunities.

Please try to reset your passport first. If that doesn't work, reach out to our customer success team immediately via email at [email protected] and we will help you resolve the issue.

Congratulations! All you need to do is set your profile status to "Hide my profile from schools" and you will no longer appear in the profile list shown to schools. You can re-activate your profile at any time when you are looking for your next job! If you want to delete your profile entirely from our platform, please update the field "Permanently delete my profile" to Yes, and we will remove your data completely.

Your success is our success!

Staffroom doesn't support the selection of teachers based on their nationality. Qualified and experienced teachers should be considered for hiring on their merits, not their passports.
However, we appreciate it may be challenging to meet visa requirements. We suggest that you reach out to teachers and have a conversation directly regarding the position and then explore if they are eligible for the visa.
Alternatively, filter teachers by their current location and try to find a teacher who is currently in your country and may not require a visa.

Your success is our success!

Staffroom identified a gap in the market for a fast, affordable teacher-hiring solution. We developed this platform because we understand that traditional recruitment methods used to hire teachers are slow and expensive. We know how challenging it is to find teachers in the current global supply crisis.
We've deliberately kept our price as low as possible so that your school can spend your budget on resources for students, rather than on hiring overhead.
Our yearly subscription fee is just $1200 USD. Hire as many teachers as you like with nothing more to pay!

It takes just 60 seconds to complete your payment and get immediate access to our teacher profiles. You can start contacting teachers for interviews immediately!

It's super simple! Once you have completed payment and are signed in to our teacher profiles, you will see a Chat tab in the header. Just click on the button, find the teacher's name and start chatting with the teacher about your vacancy.
When your conversation progresses to the next stage, you can arrange a time to video call them through the platform. We include the teacher's current time zone in their profile so you can easily arrange a mutually convenient time.

We require all schools to abide by our Code of Conduct which ensures a positive hiring experience is had by both teachers and schools.
The Code of Conduct requires that schools provide written interview feedback within 5 business days after an interview (we have a standard form to make it super easy for you).
Should we receive feedback from our teachers that schools are not abiding by the Code of Conduct, we may cancel your access to our platform with no refund.

Excellent! We are so pleased that you've had success hiring through our platform!
Please contact the teacher directly to discuss your offer. There are $0 hiring fees to pay - everything is included in your yearly subscription.
