Hello fellow teachers (and everyone this applies too)! I’ll try keep this to the point because I would love some guidance on my next steps with my career. Basically I have 3 offers (yes lucky) for Aug/Sep and they’ve all come about at once after not having much luck. I have 2 years full time teaching experience, 1 year part time (now) and loads of part time experience as an unqualified teacher (PE Specialist). So for September I have 3 options and need to make a decision pretty swiftly. I have 3 teaching offers that are in UK, Doha Qatar and Beijing China. What I need help with is comparison of salaries and countries because it’s obviously a big and possibly life changing decision. Doha – Qatar Salary: 17500 qar tax free (£44k) Accommodation: 3 months provided Flights allowance given and medical provided Direct to school job 2 year contract Working 07.30am-2.30/3.30pm I need to pay around £400 upfront before July to sort out document transfer etc. The school is new, international and right near the main city. The classes would be small and I have done a face to face interview for the job. ..................................................... Beijing – China Salary: 340000rmb (£38k) Accommodation: Allowance monthly of 6000rmb (£600) Flights and medical provided Job through agency 2 year contract Working 8am-5pm This is an established school, although I cannot find reviews anywhere for it. I got the job over Skype. The classes would be small and it is an international school. ...................................................... UK – England Salary: 33k Accommodation: not provided (just to compare to the others) Job direct to school Permanent contract Working 8.30am-4.30pm This is an established Indian (not sure whether that matters) independent school. There are mixed reviews online. The classes again would be small. I’ll add a couple more things, I do have a girlfriend but I’m not certain where it would go in the future, be hard nonetheless but its also a factor (she does want to return to her native country Romania at some point). I’m torn as to which is the best offer as well as which country to live in (I am from England). I have compared cost of living in the 3 countries. Im quite introverted, dont drink much or go out a lot, but do love a city (living in Canary Wharf/Greenwich was amazing) but want to make sure I take the best opportunity. I also suffer from Hay Fever (grass and tree pollen) and have no idea how it would be abroad. Any advice would be massively appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
