Do all my references have to be teaching related?

All your employment references do not need to be related to teaching.

However, you may only request administrative or teaching references through Teach Away’s confidential “Request a Reference” tool.

This could be from either:

  • A current/recent supervisor
  • A current/recent co-worker
  • The parent of a student

We’ll send them an automated and confidential questionnaire once you click “Request Reference.”

To include student and/or general work references (not related to education) in your Teach Away profile, you can upload reference letters in PDF or .docx format within the “Documents” section of your profile.
