Teachers get inside-track on international job hunting

High numbers turn out for TIC Recruitment’s Teaching Overseas seminar

Over 70 teachers attended TIC’s recent Teaching Overseas seminar in London. The level of interest and enquiries we received demonstrates the growing number of British teachers considering their options abroad.

The event was split into two sessions to accomodate numbers. Each session included a group presentationsand individual consultations with the attendees. We were surprised to find that most teachers were already aware of international schools – very different from when TIC started ten years ago! This meant we were able to spend more time advising where to look for jobs and how to apply.

There are now over 8,000 international schools around the world and most people at the seminar said that with so many options available, advice and support from TIC’s international school experts is crucial to help make an informed choice. The most common questions from teachers were about salaries and contracts. Some teachers were also interested to know whether they could take their families and what benefits would be provided.

Ten years of recruiting for some of the very best international schools in the world means TIC’s team has a wide range of expert knowledge, experience and connections to draw from. We wanted everyone who attended to know that TIC's help is always there for them. We give our advice and support to teachers throughout their entire contract, not just while they're job hunting.

Feedback from attending teachers was overwhelmingly positive. "I found this really uselful," says teacher Amy. "It has made me very excited about the prospect of moving abroad!"

Attendee Nataly was attracted to the seminar after reading TIC's philosophy on our website. She found the seminar "was excellent and very balanced."

Teacher Ravinder found the seminar very useful and suggested we should hold more events and seminars for UK teachers considering moving overseas. After this year's success, we expect to be holding many more events in 2016!
