Ready for an in­ter­na­tional school ad­ven­ture?

Teach like you’re at home, but travel the world at the same time!

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS -

DO you have the travel bug or yearn for ad­ven­ture in un­known parts of the world?

Are you at a place in your life where you want to ex­pe­ri­ence more than the same daily rou­tine?

Do you have a great sense of hu­mour, flex­i­bil­ity and the abil­ity to cope with any sit­u­a­tion?

Do you feel se­cure in your teach­ing prac­tice?

If you can hon­estly answer yes to th­ese ques­tions, then you are well placed to have a suc­cess­ful and re­ward­ing time at an in­ter­na­tional school. Search As­so­ciates work with over 700 ac­cred­ited, well-re­sourced schools in 161 coun­tries.

Re­lo­cat­ing over­seas is an ex­pe­ri­ence that changes your life, in both ex­pected and in sur­pris­ing ways, but it’s not for the faint hearted.

THINK ABOUT WHAT IS IM­POR­TANT TO YOU — YOUR DEAL-BREAK­ERS.

Do you want the ex­pe­ri­ence for a chance to make some ex­tra dol­lars? In­ter­na­tional schools usu­ally of­fer free rental, med­i­cal in­sur­ance, and flights home giv­ing you the added ben­e­fit of rent­ing out your house.

Do you want to travel around Europe or Asia or the Mid­dle East? Think about how many plane trips you will need to get to dif­fer­ent coun­tries, es­pe­cially if you are trav­el­ling with chil­dren.

Is weather im­por­tant to you? If you can’t see your­self liv­ing in hu­mid­ity or ex­treme weather con­di­tions, re­think where you might be will­ing to go.

Is it an is­sue whether the school is ‘for profit’ or ‘non-profit’?

Do you need a large ex­pat com­mu­nity in an es­tab­lished city or would a small school in a de­vel­op­ing coun­try suit you bet­ter?

Your views on ac­cess to hospitals, clean air, sav­ings po­ten­tial etc. are also worth con­sid­er­ing.
