Changing specialisim abroad

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by RobertsResources, Nov 15, 2011.

  1. That's also the issue, I have a degree from Liverpool University in Computer and Multimedia Systems!

    Perce' is correct.
    Many international schools like their PE teachers to teach across the Key Stages, too; how is your Year 2 'Team Games', Year 6 gymnastics or your Year 11 basketball, volleyball, rugby (the kids will know an awful lot!)?
    I have headed two PE departments overseas and worked with geographers, chemists, maths and English teachers who 'helped' in the PE department; they were all shit! [​IMG] ...joke...sort of.
    But! We did have to work the timetable around what they could specialise in.
    Top tier schools will not employ a non-specialist, simply because there are plenty around, but second tiers might. *** schools employ staff without teaching degrees; how many in their PE Departments will be PE trained? Only the HODs, I suspect.
    Another poster is right as well. A good maths teacher happy to help out in PE would be a pretty valuable commodity anywhere. The world could be your oysterrrrrrrrrr.


     
  3. Wow - no *** allowed. The soundalike is banned as well. Soon Al Jolson won't be allowed!
    'C-h-ewyfat' schools.
