Teaching in Kenya...

    Afternoon all, I've scrolled through past posts about living and working in Kenya but wondered if anyone who is CURRENTLY or has RECENTLY worked in Kenya could shed some light on what it's like at the moment? I"m particularly interested in the school outside of Nairobi that goes by the name of a Scottish Saint.The move would entail both my partner and myself getting teaching jobs at the school and our 2 children (aged 8 and 10) moving with us. I'm not overly worried about the safety element as I grew up in Africa (elsewhere) myself but more about whether the education would be good for our kids/ what life is like out there from a social perspective/ pay? Thanks so much for any info :)

    I moved here with young family last year. Best thing we have ever done. We love it! Work life balance compared to the uk is so much better. Took a pay cut to come here but have more money in the bank at the end of the month.

    Our kids have settled in very well, making friends and having amazing new experiences.

    Hi 1lessonatatime, thanks for your reply. If you had a moment to tell me more, I'd b hugely appreciative. How old are your kids? Did you find the logistics a nightmare? Any other advice?? Thanks

    Hi,

    I did not know either, so I contacted TES and apparently you cannot do it. If you let me know what you would like to know, I can do my best to give you an overview of what its like to live there, cost of living, salaries, schools (without mentioning names) etc. I was there fore 6 years, it is a greta country but there are things to consider based on if you have a family, location of school, cost of living etc.
