TIC Weekly Blog - 9th November 2012

Welcome to TIC's weekly blog. This week we've been very pleased to hear back from a number of our teachers who we’ve placed in international schools in the past year.

Keeping in touch

We always stay in contact with the teachers we place to make sure that they're enjoying everything international education can offer them. We've been getting some fantastic feedback from our teachers - on both the service we provide and on how their placements are going. Here are some quotes from some of the people we spoke to this week:

"I can’t believe how quickly I got a job from applying! I now have money in the bank and a chance to develop my career. I have a lot to thank TIC for." - Ian Wigley, Primary Teacher, The Hague, The Netherlands

“I would absolutely recommend TIC to a colleague. They were extremely professional and proficient.” - Chantal Benani, French Teacher, Bangkok, Thailand

"The atmosphere, attitudes and enthusiasm of all the staff and children is infectious. It makes you happy to come to school every day, knowing that the children want to learn." - Carey Kalym, Primary Teacher, Doha, Qatar

Our teachers in the press

The experiences that our teachers have while working overseas are incredibly varied, which shows just how exciting international teaching can be. Their stories are regularly featured in publications and websites. We're very pleased that a number of TIC teachers have been featured on the Easy Expats website; all with a different story to tell and advice to give for those considering a career teaching in an international school. We'd like to thank Jenny Cleaver, Conal Atkins and Lawrence Diver who have all given their time to tell people their stories. If you'd like to read the article, just click here.

Also the International School Community website has featured an article about teacher Gerry Young. Gerry was a teacher in Scotland who, with the help of TIC, moved out to Mauritius with his wife to teach in an international school. They have since moved to Bangkok to continue their adventure where Gerry is now teaching at Harrow International School. Gerry’s story is a fascinating insight into the international school experience and we'd like to thank the International School Community website for their continued support of our teacher’s stories.
