Ready for an international school adventure?
Teach like you’re at home, but travel the world at the same time!
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.
Find an organisation with a proven track record of placing teachers in quality schools.
