    My husband and I are seriously looking into relocating to Canada (West coast) and I wondered if anyone had any advice about how to start looking for and applying for teaching posts out there - preferably and international/British curriculum school. We have two small children (6 and 3) so that adds to the mix! Any advice would be much appreciated as we want to get the ball rolling asap. TIA

    Talk on the different forums is that it is very difficult to get jobs in Canada. Apparently there are many Canadian teachers working overseas as jobs are almost non existent in Canada.Not sure about the international schools or Brit Curr schools. Try searching the Overseas Forum as info has been posted there.

    On a serious note, yea I have heard it's almost impossible :(. The person I replaced at my current school (8 years ago) moved to Canada and according to those that still keep in contact with them, they still have no teaching job!

    Getting a teaching job is difficult. I'm not sure if all boards of education have the same process but I'll give you an example. First you have to get on the occasional teachers list but that list is not always open to new applicants. Now you can apply for jobs without being on the list but those who are or are already employed by the board have priority for jobs. If you were to be hired in front of them, the principal would have to prove you were the better candidate.

    I've searched a lot on this subject, it seems very difficult to get a job in a state run school but is there any information on independent schools?
