Can anyone describe the UK education system?

I would like to move to the UK, and of course, I will need to find a job there. I want to know as much as possible about the UK education system and about first for education portal. I would also really appreciate it if a teacher from the UK may advise me about the best schools and tell me about the education review journal as I want to be a teacher in the UK. I hope I can find useful information on this site. Thank you!

I want you to rest assured and know that you won’t have to worry at all about finding a job here as long if you have proper teaching certifications and work experience. The UK educational system is simple and easy to understand unlike education systems in many other countries. I am telling you that because I have worked as a teacher in many countries around the world before. In general, education in the UK is divided into four main parts, primary education, secondary education, further education, and higher education. According to legal measures in the UK, children have to attend school from the age of 5 until they are 16 years old.

Education in the UK is also split into four main key stages, key stage 1: 5 to 7 years old, key stage 2: 7 to 11 years old, key stage 3: 11 to 14 years old, and key stage 4: 14 to 16 years old. Usually, students in the United Kingdom are assessed at the end of each educational stage, and the most important assessment occurs at the age of 16 when students pursue the General Certificate of Secondary Education. Regarding the first education portal, it is one of the main online portals in the UK for those who want to be employed as teachers in the UK schools. I really advise you to check it out so that you can figure out the best job and also compare different jobs available online.
I also want to advise you to check the ratings of each school online before you decide to work there because of course, some schools are much better compared to others when it comes to the overall quality of education. You will find the online link to this portal at the end of my answer. When it comes to the educational review journal, it is, of course, one of the most popular journals online for getting academic and scientific information for students, teachers, and even researchers. I have used it myself many times to get to know more about different academic information that I needed sometimes, and it has proved to be very useful. I hope that you may enjoy working in the UK.

I also agree with the answer above when it comes to checking the ratings of different schools online before you think of applying to a certain school. In general, most of the school in the United Kingdom are very advanced and equipped with anything a teacher or a student may need, but I am just talking about the perfect school where you can guarantee having a good career teaching there. I have also used the education review journal many times to double check academic and scientific information. It is really very useful, and it has a nice interface that anyone can use easily. When it comes to the educational system here, the answer above has explained everything in detail. I want to wish you best of luck with your future life in the United Kingdom, and I hope you may enjoy living here.
