channel islands - not exactly overseas but near enough!

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by anon1369, May 19, 2011.

  1. I have posted this on personal but thought it might be worth a try posting here too. I live in England so the Channel Islands are not exactly an exotic far away location but I would live advice about taking a job over there.
    There is a job going in my subject in Guernsey which I am thinking of
    applying for. I was going to just apply for it and see how things go
    from there. However, after carrying out some research I'm having doubts
    as to whether or not it's a good idea.
    I am an NQT and they have an accepted induction programme so thats not a problem.
    is more than over here - around £25,000 - excellent you may think! That
    is until I started looking at accomodation! I understand housing falls
    into 2 categories and I can only rent houses on the 'open market'. The
    cheapest <u>1 bed flat</u> I could find was &pound;1300 per month! Infact the cheapest property on one estate agent was &pound;43,000 pa - nearly double my salary! [​IMG] Then there is bills and furnishings to think about.
    I would hope that MrCC could come with me - but this might be a problem
    as there are restrictions regarding employment etc. If MrCC can't come
    with me then I would have to pay all rent and bills myself which I am
    sure would bankrupt me!
    So, any advice from anyone who can help would be much appreciated. Particularly those who have 'moved' there for work.
    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    "near enough" or "far enough"?
