TIC attends the ECIS conference for the seventh year running!

The TIC team flew out to Nice in France on the 21st November to attend the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) conference. This was a fantastic opportunity for TIC to gain new contacts, and to catch up with those we already have a relationship with.

During our time out there, TIC met up with the International School of London Group to discuss recruitment for their schools in 2013. TIC Director Andrew Wigford also helped to launch the new International Primary Curriculum book with editors Mary Hayden and Jeff Thompson. Andrew has written a chapter for the book that discusses recruiting teachers for IPC schools.

TIC is pleased to announce that our golf competition was a massive success! However the winner did not come to collect their bottle of Champagne, so we still have it!

TIC joins forces with new International School of Vietnam

TIC has now become the preferred recruiter for the brand new International School of Vietnam located in Hanoi, Vietnam. The school will open its doors in August 2013. Teaching jobs will be advertised on the TIC website very soon. Look out in the TIC January Newsletter for an interview with the new Principal of the school, Jason Kirwin.

TIC December Newsletter out next week!

Keep an eye out for the new TIC newsletter, which will be out next week. It is a great way to catch up with TIC announcements.

This month’s newsletter features an interview with Harrow International School Bangkok Headteacher Mick Farley. Mick explains what Harrow Bangkok can offer new recruits, and what they can offer to Harrow. Also two teachers describe how their move to Kazakhstan has opened up new opportunities in career development.

Also in the newsletter, TIC Director Andrew Wigford will give an account of his visit to several international schools and conferences in several countries during November, and you will be able to meet the newest members of the TIC team! All this, plus the latest vacancies and advice.
