Having been with the program before to a summer camp in China, I was keen to stay with the company when I moved to teach in Poland.

Impact Teaching sorted out a safe (and legal!) way to get a lower tax rate by working with a local company in Poland, as well as getting the appropriate visa post-Brexit. Having the local company there also meant there was support on the ground (such as PESEL number, accommodation, bank account, etc.) as well as all the support from Impact Teaching with the visa etc.

Impact Teaching helped me secure a job at a school which is well-reviewed and has a good reputation, and before applying they reformatted my CV into the style which is preferred by Polish schools. The stress was taken out of the application process, and I had a chance to ask about the visa and practicalities of moving to Poland during the interview.

Perhaps most importantly, I became part of a network of teachers in Poland, which involved being part of groupchats, zoom calls and then actually spending nearly all of my time with them when I arrived in Warsaw! This was very important to me from a social point of view, but also meant that other teachers could suggest jobs for you that they don't have time for.

Overall, I wouldn't have made the move to Poland without the help of Impact Teaching - especially post-Brexit, the help with visas has been invaluable, as well as the social side where you can meet many likeminded teachers :) Being able to talk with previous teachers was also really helpful and answered any remaining questions I had.
