    Are you thinking of moving away from home for a new job? It may not be as daunting as you think and could be the fresh start you are looking, whether it’s a new adventure somewhere in the UK or further afield.

    Would you be happy to try somewhere new?

    Would somewhere up north ignite your interest or would you prefer the attractions down south?

    Or have you already made the leap and enjoying working and living in another part of Britain or abroad, if so, let us know and share your experience and top tips for making the move.

    Do you agree with these teachers that it was the best decision you ever made?

    If you are still deciding on making a move then maybe you need to assess the reasons why you have itchy feet and consider what benefits a new opportunity in another area could be in store for you:

    Hi I moved to Kuwait three years ago to teach in a British international school, without knowing anybody on the continent. I chose it as it paid the most of any jobs on the international jobs page! I had been teaching in London for a few years and disillusioned with the prospect of having to house share into my thirties. There have been many ups and downs but overall it was the best decision I ever made as I was able to purchase a house in my home town (unthinkable while working in the UK) and ask met my boyfriend. I also (unfortunately perhaps) became used to having six luxury holidays a year! I would recommend it if you feel stuck. Happy to answer any questions about the process.
