Welcome to TIC's second weekly blog! This is a great place to get some of the latest news from TIC. Whether you're a possible applicant, a recruiter, a teacher we've helped place or just someone who's interested in international education, we hope that this is the best way to keep informed!
Series of Webinars to Help Teachers Across the World
Teachers International Consultancy is pleased to announce that we will be continuing our successful run of free, informative webinars. Webinars are an incredibly easy and convenient way for us to speak with many people across the world at the same time. A webinar is simply a seminar that is accessed on your computer. All participants log-in at a scheduled time and are then able to watch a live interactive presentation. There is also a participation panel on your screen so you can speak and interact with fellow participants and the webinar presenter, allowing questions to be answered instantly.
Our webinars are hosted by our recruitment experts Andrew Wigford and Gemma McSweeney. They provide the perfect opportunity for anyone curious about international education to get professional advice easily and totally free of charge. The upcoming TIC webinars are:

All you ever wanted to know about International Schools but too afraid to ask - Wednesday, 10th Octpber, 5pm (British Summer Time)
Applying for jobs, preparing your CV and personal statement - Wednesday, 17th October, 5pm (British Summer Time)
Hearing Back from Our Teachers
We've started to receive some amazing feedback from the teachers we have placed over the past year! It's been incredibly rewarding to hear about people's experiences, how they have been settling in and how they've been learning so much. Whether it be growing as a professional or becoming immersed in a new culture, people's stories have been brilliant to hear. We'd like to thank everyone who has taken time out of their busy schedules to let us know how things are going. Here are just a couple of comments:
"The best thing is taking that first step; a leap of faith and meeting some great people, great children and parents, and exploring teaching on a whole new level." - This was sent to us Diestene Williams who TIC helped to move from Lewisham in London to teach at the British School of New York.
"Living here has allowed me to grow as a person. I've got to know myself better, and I've met some amazing people, who I hope will be friends for life. It's allowed me to travel Egypt and experience new things as well. The teaching has also been great, my class are lovely. I've loved it all!" - This was from Jenny Cleaver who moved from Warwickshire in England to El Gouna in Egypt thanks to help from TIC.
