Welcome to the TIC weekly blog, where you will find some of the latest news and advice from Teachers International Consultancy.
Free Seminar on International Education in London
Making the move to an international school can be one of the most exciting yet challenging prospects of a teacher’s career. This is why Teachers International Consultancy is pleased to announce that we will be holding a free seminar for all qualified and training teachers. The seminar will be held at the Hilton London Paddington Hotel on the 17th November 2012, and will offer a great insight into the opportunities that teaching in an international school can offer. Drawing on TIC’s 25 years of experience, the seminar will cover everything you need to know about teaching overseas. These include:
• Finding and getting the right position in the right school
• Salaries, benefits and contracts explained
• The pitfalls and problems to be aware of
• Moving overseas with a family
• And much more…
The seminar will be led by TIC Director, Andrew Wigford, who has been involved with every aspect of international education for over 30 years; as a teacher, Headteacher and recruiting consultant. There will also be an opportunity for qualified teachers to arrange a one-on-one meeting with a member of the TIC recruitment team to discuss your career – subject to availability (limited places available so sign up now!)
International School Community: a great resource for international educators
If you’re curious about teaching overseas or are preparing to make the move, the International School Community website has featured a great 10 part article on how to get ready for life in a new country. The Ten Commandments of Relocating Overseas feature covers a range of topics, from the best ways to research the country before you move, to how to adapt to different cultures.
The International School Community website has an incredible range of information, advice and opinions on international education. The website is designed to both inform experienced teachers and to give them a platform to share their own stories and advice. It regularly has articles giving guidance on recruitment and relocation, and even has a different blog featured every month from international teachers. It is a fantastic resource for anyone considering a career, or is currently involved, in international education.
