Good Morning and a Happy New Year, I am hoping I might be able to get some advice regards teaching overseas. I came later on to teaching (am aged 37) and as such have only been employed as a Humanities teacher for 3 years (am in my forth year now). I applied for an international position whilst I was doing my NQT year but was unsuccessful. I have two small children aged 3 & 5. My questions are these: 1. When is the main time of year for international positions to be advertised? 2. Are job fairs a better place to find positions as you can meet employers face to face? 3. Will I be at a disadvantage due to having children? (I know that employers wouldn't say this but I can understand why young single teachers with no responsibility may seem more attractive) 4. Is having 3 years experience sufficient or would employers be looking for more than this? I very much appreciate any advice people are able to give. Thank you in advance for your time.
