Teachers' Overseas Recruiting Fair

Why you should register for TORF:

  • You could walk out of the fair with a solid plan for the next year and beyond- many attendees sign contracts over the course of the weekend. 
  • TORF occurs during the height of the recruiting 'season' - there are hundreds of positions available.
  • Experienced Queen's Education Career Advisors  are available to help you understand each school's individual nature so you can make the best decision about where overseas you would like to teach. 
  • You will have exclusive access to our International Teaching Overseas webinars that will help you prepare for the TORF weekend as well as teaching abroad. 
  • Many of our schools prefer to hire through face-to-face interviews, meeting recruiters in person can help you figure out your best fit. 
  • Financial and international tax experts are on site to advise you on your financial matters. 

Attending TORF in person is the most successful way of securing a position at an international school that is right for you. Teachers who attend TORF tell us that being at the fair is an education in international teaching, and that the support they received helped them to make the best decision about their future. We are committed to providing the most trustworthy advice and support during the recruitment process.

Please note that the positions and location of the schools vary widely, and that the numbers of positions will decrease after the peak period during TORF. For this reason, we suggest that each candidate be open to considering vacancies in schools in at least two continents to increase the likelihood of securing a contract.
