Waltham Forest is the perfect location for newly qualified teachers (NQTs).

A short walk from the tube station is a shopping centre, several supermarkets as well as Europe’s longest street market. The borough has easy accesses to the sports and leisure facilities at the Olympic Village in Stratford.
