I think a word of caution is timely at this point of the Corona Virus epidemic, economic collapse and the recruitment season. Schools and companies abroad really have no idea in the best of times how many students will be arriving in September and many (especially the Middle East) are not immune from withdrawing contracts at the last second (you'll get an email with a "Sorry" in it), leaving you in serious financial problems and jobless. The Virus has really thrown predictions into turmoil like never before. When a school makes you an offer, or gives you a contract, you need to be really sure you understand that it can be withdrawn right at the last moment in July or August, long after you've resigned form your safe if semi-horrible UK job. You could easily find yourself with no UK job and no International job to go to. This is especially true in countries in the Middle East but elsewhere, too. You will have no paddles to go up any creek, you'll be very unlikely to be able to do anything except post your indignation on a forum and you could be hit very hard financially. Remember - contracts in the Middle East and other places are worth nothing until you are actually there, teaching, in your apartment and are getting paid. Just accept any offers of contracts from International schools with your eyes very wide open, assume they will withdraw the offer at the very last moment, have a few quid in the bank in case things go pear-shaped and keep in mind that the Virus will play hell with student numbers in international schools in September.
