My family (husband and two young children) and I are currently looking into moving away from the UK based on myself getting a primary teaching post... somewhere! With limited savings we are currently looking at places which might include good relocation packages (yet we are not really considering the middle east or china as options for us!). One query we do have though is that even in schools that do provide flights, housing allowance etc. what sort of savings might we need to have in order to relocate? I realise this may very much depend on where we are relocating to but basically wondering things like, do some relocation packages provide money up front to cover costs of flights or deposits for accommodation or do we pay for those things ourselves and then claim back? I have taught in an international school in Spain before but I was already living there at the time so don't have experience of the relocation part of things. So any advice or info on relocating, especially with a family in tow, will be greatly appreciated.
