TIC Weekly Blog - 15th November 2012

Welcome to the TIC weekly blog. This week we’ve been hearing from teachers, informing teachers and getting ready to advise teachers!

 

From Coventry to Qatar

This week we heard back from one of our teachers who we recently placed; Carey Kalym. Carey was finding it hard to get a permanent teaching job within her local area, so she decided to look further a field. Being inspired by family members who lived in the Middle East, she contacted TIC and is now teaching at Compass International School, Al Khor in Qatar. “I have enjoyed the first few months of living and teaching out here”, Carey says. “I would really recommend it!”

While still teaching in Coventry, Carey had started her hunt for international teaching jobs online. “I had been searching the internet and came across the TIC advert for teachers in Qatar,” she says. “I got in touch with TIC the very same day. They were brilliant. Always there if I needed information and gave me everything I could need for getting ready for my interview. I knew I could get in touch if I needed anything. I would definitely recommend TIC,” Carey adds. “They give helpful advice and will answer any queries you have.”

TIC featured in Guardian Teacher Network e-newsletter

TIC was very happy to be featured in the Guardian Teacher Network’s e-newsletter this month. The newsletter goes out to over 100,000 teachers, and the response we’ve had so far has been brilliant! We always like to inform teachers about the opportunities that are available in international schools, and we’re very thankful to the Guardian Teacher Network for helping us to reach their many subscribers. We look forward to working with some of these teachers and helping them off on their adventure of working internationally!

It’s not too late to join us this weekend

The TIC team is gearing up for this weekend’s London seminar! On Saturday 17th November, TIC will be hosting a free seminar for qualified and training teachers in the Hilton London Paddington Hotel – offering all the advice you’ll need for making the decision on an international teaching move.

We’ve been very pleased with the number of sign-ups so far. It really shows how teaching internationally is becoming a desirable career move for teachers, and hope that we inspire those still training to consider working overseas after a few years of teaching. If you’d still like to sign-up and you’re reading this before 17th November, simply email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to register your interest.

A new addition to the TIC team

During this week our TIC marketing team has been joined by Andrea Griffiths on work experience. Andrea will be helping to organise our teacher case studies, as well as writing for our newsletter. We hope she will enjoy her week with us, and maybe even join us again soon!
