Job-hunting in International Schools in Europe

    Unlike the UK, you won't find the paranoia about a pedophile hiding in every hedge. So, most schools won't waste your time with lengthy application forms, where you have to document how much time you spent on the john in every job you have ever had. They will expect a CV and letter of application. Also, a fair number will be happy to conduct a Skype video interview.

    Other than that, you will not find many differences, and your recent experience in a demanding school with aspirational parents will help. If you have any experience with youngsters whose first language is not English, be sure to mention it.
    Then again, perhaps David is behind the times. If there is any area of Europe which will have been at pains to catch up on paranoia-UK-style, that area is probably Benelux. But as you already know, there is also much that is good about 'UK best practice'. Really.
