I am currently Teaching in SE Asia in a well respected British International Secondary School since 2013. Due to my wife not being able to work in her profession in our country of residence we are looking at options for the future at the end of our current contract (2017) at which point we will have saved a good amount for a deposit for a house back in the UK. My question to you guys really is has British Education changed a great deal in the past 2 years? I spoke to a teacher recently from the UK and she informs me about the changes to levelling and observations. Are things on the up? or continuing the downward spiral I started to witness when I was teaching in there. Is the trend of data, data, data being reduced? Fear mentality still present? Performance related pay? Salary's being increased in line with inflation now? Just wanted to touch base with teachers back home and see how things are. My gut instinct is to stay away a while longer.
