What are your favorite places in England to live and work with a lower cost of living than London?

I'm asking for my boyfriend who is applying to teach primary school in England from January 2012 to July 2012. He's interested in teaching in the UK to get some experience teaching (its difficult to find work teaching in Canada at the moment), but is having trouble deciding where to apply for jobs.
Any recommendations of places to consider or regions to avoid?
From the research he's done so far he's considered Southwest England, Birmingham, the Midlands, and Kent/East Sussex. Also open to other suggestions.
Things that are important in his decision:
- Would like to be within 3 hour public transportation ride to Heathrow or Manchester airport (international connections to come see me in Norway)
- Lower cost of living is preferable, London looks to be too expensive
- Small to mid sized city
