Vira International provides UK secondary schools with outstanding enthusiastic Science and Maths teachers through the UK Tier 2 Visa. This applies to skilled workers who are offered sponsorship by an employer to fill gaps in the UK labour force (previously the work permit route). Our international recruitment services are completely free for all UK host schools.


The Vira International service guarantee covers dedicated step by step support through the entire placement process so that host schools can hire the best international teaching talent without the hassle of the visa process.


Host a Teacher in UK


As a host school you will enjoy a motivated and qualified teacher committed to your students and excited to enrich your classroom environment. Our teachers have a minimum of one university degree and two to four years of professional teaching experience. Our educators are trained to teach an array of subjects, with a focus on Science and Maths.

Why Hire Internationally?

UK has a high demand for secondary Math and Science teachers. The recruitment crisis in schools deepens; schools in UK are increasingly looking to recruit overseas trained Maths & Science teachers to fill these vacancies. Overseas trained teachers may not be entitled to work in UK however, Tier 2 sponsorship can offer an alternative to enable them to work in UK. This increasing demand for Teachers in the UK has meant that the UK must rely on staff from outside the European Union, hence most teaching roles have been classified under the UKVI’s ‘Shortage category’. The Tier 2 Sponsorship visa offers a route into the UK for skilled teachers who have a full-time job offer from a UK based employer (schools) with a visa up to 5 years . Vira has expanded its UK operations to recruit experienced and talented teachers and support schools in processing Tier 2 Sponsorship visas. At Vira International we place teachers in the Science (Chemistry & Physics only) and Maths department. There is also a high demand for teachers at key stages of secondary school, in permanent teaching roles.
