Breaking into the overseas job market

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by jdp53, Jun 22, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I’m looking for information on the best
    route into the overseas international schools market. I’m a qualified EFL
    teacher (Cambridge DELTA) with 8+ years EFL teaching experience with the
    British Council in Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Italy. I made a career switch a
    while back so, for the last 10 years, I’ve been employed in IT project
    management (I have a B.Sc. Hon. in Computing & IT). I’d like to get back
    into teaching and would be grateful for any advice on PGCEs that would maximise
    my choice in the market. My first thought was to do a secondary PGCE in ICT or
    primary PGCE. I also have an honours degree in urban planning but I’m guessing
    this won’t be of much relevance.

    Any advice much

    I'm afraid that I am unqualified to give advice on either PGCEs, Career paths or Overseas Teaching.
    Appointments in UK are my area of expertise, and I wouldn't like to mislead you by claiming otherwise.
    Posting on the Career Clinic, or Prospective Student teachers or on Teaching Overseas might help you.
    Best wishes

    do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and often contribute to the
    Job Application Seminar Workshops. We look at application letters,
    executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people
    really appreciate.

    E-mail Julia on advice@tsleducation.com for how to book a meeting with me personally.

    Look forward to seeing you!

  3. Hi Theo,
    Yes, I thought as much. Unfortunately, it looks as though the other forums aren't responding to my post either.
    Thanks anyway.
