Information about Teaching Overseas for someone in the research stage

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by monkini, Dec 9, 2011.

  1. Hi guys.
    As my title suggests I'm looking for information about going into teaching abroad. I am a qualified general science teacher (Chemistry specialist) and teacher of psychology. I'm just in the process of completing my dissertation for my MA in Education as we speak, should be done by summer. I've been teaching since 2008 and have 1 years experience as assistant HOD.
    My husband and I have been wanting to move abroad for the last 5 years (we'll I live in the US for a couple of years and never wanted to come back...stupid visas), the last 2 and a bit he's been doing his PhD. He should be done this time next year though, which is why I feel it's time I seriously started looking into thinigs.
    Just wondering if anyone can offer me any general advice about any websites with good information, pitfalls when looking at places etc. I'm open to all English speaking countries and European countries, I'm more hesitant with regard to others (it's the unknown factor). I am also only interested in English speaking schools, namely because I don't speak any other languages...yet!
    I realise this is a really vague request, but I am a little overwhelmed with where to start and reading through TES has confused me more if anything. I was going to ask about benefits eg sick pay, maternity pay/leave, take home pay after tax in relation to cost of living....but I realise I need to have a country/area/school in mind to get theses sorts of specifics.
    Thanks in advance for any useful feedback, both positive and negative with regards to our future decision.
