    I was informed two weeks ago that my 1 year contract is not going to be renewed for next year. I have a really difficult year 10 group and had a bad observation with them. I try my best with them and I have asked for support with this group but the school did not really do anything to help. They said my contract is not being renewed as I did not have a good enough relationship with this group.

    I feel so upset, I don't even feel like continuing this year... :(

    I was very sorry to read about the unfair way that you have been treated, ams00, but maybe this could be a blessing in disguise. You should make the move into teaching in international schools as soon as possible. Having taught in different countries around the world for nearly twenty years, I would say that teaching in an international school is nearly always much better and more fun than teaching in the UK. If you are fed up with rude and badly-behaved students in the UK, then you will just love teaching polite and hard-working Chinese students.

    You can send me one of those TES Conversation things, if you would like my advice and guidance about how to get a job overseas. You might also find it helpful to read my blog bulgariawithnoodles.blogspot.com

    I do sympathise. Put your energies into finding a more supportive school! Good luck.

    Hi hippo, I'm interested in doing freelance teaching to Chinese students. Any advice?
    I'm actively searching for Chinese students, but it is hard to find them. Do you know any website or marketplace?
