  • 28th Annual TORF - January 29-31, 2016 January 2016

    Teachers' Overseas Recruiting Fair

    TORF Logo

    Educate. Inspire. Grow. In 1986 the Faculty of Education had its first foray into inviting teachers from other countries to recruit Canadian teachers for overseas schools. TORF was formalized in 1989, and we have placed thousands of teachers in schools in hundreds of countries since then. TORF is the recruiting fair of choice in Canada for many international schools, all of which are independent, accredited schools.

    28th Annual TORF - January 29-31, 2016

    TORF provides an on-site, three-day venue that allows teachers to have face-to-face interviews with international school administrators, and to sign contracts. We have impressive placement statistics and offer candidate support that is equal to none.‚Äč

    We are renowned for our collegial and cooperative atmosphere and for our personal touch. Our planning committee consists of Queen’s faculty, staff, students and alumni, who are all committed to international education. Our attention to detail and on-site support are designed to help teachers make important decisions. As a not-for-profit educational organization, we also provide valuable professional development opportunities for teachers throughout the TORF weekend.

    In addition to TORF, we also maintain a registry of teachers interested in international opportunities, the International Teacher Placement Service. This service operates on a year-round basis and is open to teachers with certification in North America, to schools that attend TORF, and to accredited, international schools not included at TORF. After TORF, schools that did not attend TORF may register to have access to our candidate database. More details to come later this year.

    Mission

    To provide a collegial and supportive environment in which outstanding, innovative educators are partnered with leading international schools to create inspiring opportunities for personal, professional and organizational growth. TORF is organized by educators for educators.
