applying for jobs in Europe

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by zacky, Feb 26, 2011.

  1. I'm currently in my seventh year of teaching in an inner city London school. I have always wanted to teach abroad but wanted to build up my experience in the UK first and have been happy at my current school. I have recently been looking for jobs in Europe. I had an interview for one but I was unsuccessful. When I asked for feedback, I was told that my interview was strong but they had found someone more suitable for the way the school is developing at present.
    I keep looking for more jobs to apply for however a lot of them prefer candidates to have international experience. I have no knowledge of IB and did feel I'd messed up the interview I had by not researching enough as the questions were quite different from those of a London school interview.
    I would really appreciate any advice about additional things I should mention or questions I should ask to be a stronger candidate for international schools.
    Thanks,
