My experience living and teaching in the UK was transformative and overwhelmingly positive, to say the least. It was not my first time moving abroad but I am grateful for the support provided by the Supply Desk Kent team, before, during and after my time overseas. I felt genuinely cared for- they went above and beyond even assisting with finding living arrangements. Jocelyn
