The Overseas Placement Service for Educators of the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) has been offering services since 1976. As part of the UNI Career Services, we connect certified educators to American international K-12 schools through year-round programs. Through our placement service, UNI has been a leading international recruiter for over forty years. Each year, more than 130 international schools from across 70 countries use our services to look for outstanding teachers and administrators.
Considered the longest-running international recruitment event around the globe, the initiative to create the Overseas Placement Service for Educators started when school headmasters and UNI Career Services staff discovered the need for more cost-effective and efficient recruitment strategies. Since then, we have held the year-round fair as well as developed credential files, fact sheets, referral services, and vacancy listings (among others) for an international market.
