Why Teach in Devon?
We like to think the South West is an outstandingly beautiful part of our country.
We all know it is essential to maintain a work life balance and we believe that teaching in Devon would provide you with many opportunities to live and love your life to the full.
We are proud of our spectacular coastline and beaches for sailing, water-sports and relaxing and our stunning countryside for walking; along with intriguing Dartmoor for exploring and other outdoor adventures. Exeter and Plymouth are accessible for city life; for shopping, culture and nightlife and neighbouring Cornwall is close-by for more discoveries and time out. We are well served by road links and are on the main line railway to London.
