Teaching abroad for a few months?

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by MrJames1892, May 6, 2020.

    I was thinking of potentially teaching abroad for a few months this calendar year anytime from June to December.
    Obviously, I understand that with the current situation this may not be possible.
    However, if it was possible to do you know of any good schemes that would allow me for a few months?
    I will have just passed my undergraduate primary education course and I will be a QTS.
    What countries would people advise me to go and teach in for a few months?
    Are there any schemes that pay for my travel or accommodation etc?
    Thank you for reading this!

    Most international schools require at least a two year commitment. There is a website called Teachers on the Move that hires for sub positions in international schools. No idea what they are like.

    Why for only "a few months", MrJames1892? If teaching overseas is better than teaching in the UK, then why not go overseas and stay overseas?

    On the other hand, if you have really decided to make your career in the UK, then you might as well stay in the UK and get on with it.

    The question is: would employers invest some thousands of pounds in airfares and accommodation for an inexperienced temp?

    I would advise you to complete your NQT year first.

    If its for the experience then you can probably find a bunch of places you can volunteer abroad and pay for the experience.

    If you want to be paid to do it, you're probably not worth the effort of a school to pay for any contribution for such a short time.

    Not the best time to be moving abroad. Ive heard something about a virus and borders being closed..

    Seriously though, do your NQT year and a further two years experience after that if possible. Then you might get a good job abroad.

    Some points:

    1 The OP made the post way back on 6 May
    2 He hasn't replied once (in fact it's his only post on TES)
    3 He hasn't logged in since the date of his one and only post on 6 May.
    4 Lastly, it's a such an incredibly daft question that it doesn't even deserve a reply :D

    Do they have a hundred sock puppet accounts asking about moving to Dubai or Singapore?
