Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in but here goes... I'm a fully qualified teacher, I taught for 3 years in England and have spent the past one and a half years teaching in S.E.Asia. I'm now considering what to do in September. Part of me wants to return to England but I have two reservations- career and social aspects. Career- Has teaching abroad had a negative effect on your CV? Or do employers look on it favourably? Or does it depend how it's worded? When returning, did you feel 'out of touch'? And how did you handle the increased workload? As for the social aspect- I am slightly worried that I will find it hard to make friends again, in my experience, the expat community out here as been quite welcoming! I'm also worried that I may find England cold/boring (I'm used to going abroad for every school holiday!). I know this is quite a lot to ask but any experiences you can share (positive or negative) would be really interesting. Thank you!
