International schools want more teachers! Find your new role at TIC’s Virtual Recruitment Fair!

Published on 14th November, 2018 by Wendy Hartrey. Published in For Candidates / TIC News

Yesterday, the TES published an article written by international school Headteacher, Mark Steed about the teacher recruitment crisis in the UK, and worldwide. The article discussed how increasingly difficult it is for schools to find qualified British teachers. As a result, they are in great demand. This is especially the case in international schools, which value UK-trained teachers highly.

Are you interested in teaching overseas?

Teaching overseas has never been a more attractive option and roughly 15,000 teachers are leaving the UK each year for opportunities at international schools abroad.  Not only can it sometimes provide significant financial benefits as Mark Steed highlights, but moving to an international school is also considered to be particularly valuable for personal and professional development.

Who is recruiting?

More and more international schools are increasing their recruitment. This is partly because the number of British curriculum schools overseas is expanding. Within the next five years, ISC Research estimates that international schools will need to recruit 181,000 more staff, and 429,000 in the next ten years so opportunities for qualified teachers with some experience of reputable curricula (like the National Curriculum of England, International Baccalaureate, or American Curriculum) are extensive.

How can you find a suitable teaching position at an international school?
