Take your teaching career abroad with the help of experts TIC Recruitment

Teaching overseas…it may have been a bit of a dream until now, but here’s a chance to take the first positive step towards making your dream a reality.

TIC’s International Teaching Careers Day, taking place in London this November, will tell you all the crucial things you need to know about teaching overseas and how to take the right steps to finding the right job for you. It’s free, highly informative, and could be your first step to realising your dream!

We know all the questions teachers ask

TIC knows that teachers have many questions and concerns when they first start thinking about moving overseas. Questions such as: Is it really for me? What help and support will I get along the way?  How do I find a good school? Is support available to me once I’m overseas?  All of these questions and many more will be answered during the International Teaching Careers Day.

There will be an informative presentation which will include live Skypes with Headteachers of international schools, and you’ll have plenty of chance to ask the questions that matter to you.

There will be a public Q&A session where you’ll also hear questions other people have - that you might not have even thought about.  You can also book a 30-minute one-to-one session with a TIC recruitment expert where you’ll be able to ask questions privately, talk about your own career plans, receive advice about preparing your CV for international job applications, and find out about the right international schools for you.

TIC’s Careers Days are always extremely popular so book your place now. There are two sessions that you can choose from at the London International Teaching Careers Day on Saturday November 26th; morning or afternoon. The presentations are completely free for qualified or training teachers considering international teaching options now or in the future.

One-to-one sessions are just £35 per person.

So start turning your dream into reality – just like teacher Claire Woodhouse.

International teaching gave me the chance to improve my teaching skills   

Claire Woodhouse is a teacher from Stoke Poges in Buckinghamshire, England who is using her experience working at an international school to develop professionally. TIC helped Claire find her teaching job at ACS Doha International School in Qatar where she teaches English and Drama.

“I decided to move to an international school to improve my teaching skills by learning another school's education system,” Claire explains. “I also felt in need of an adventure. I wanted to challenge myself by living and working in a completely different environment – to see if I could do it!”

You can read more about Claire’s experience teaching overseas in our Teachers' Stories section. BEFORE YOU DO… register now for the TIC International Teaching Careers Day and start turning your dream into reality. We hope to see you there!
