Objective Transparency

IST's co-founders and staff have substantial experience in recruiting and evaluating teachers.

We have been teachers, administrators, counsellors and parents at international schools in 15 countries.

IST promises that the information you receive about IST's teachers is both objective and transparent.

IST's priority is to ensure that your students suffer minimal disruption when a teacher is unavoidably absent.


IST's interview process and referee checks were designed to ensure that our registration process meets the most demanding standards of any elite international school.

Our IST Managers are highly valued for their substantial experience with international school recruitment processes.
  • Qualified – IST selects teachers who are a good match for your vacancy. Their experience and adaptability ensures that their teaching style will be a good fit with your school culture.
  • Independent – IST teachers typically expect to be teaching immediately on arrival at your school. They do expect accommodation and transportation to the school and value any assistance given to help them settle into the school culture. Most importantly, IST teachers are adept at settling in quickly to a new country. They are innovative and adapt rapidly in order to meet the needs of their students.
