    I am thinking about applying for teaching jobs in Singapore and wanted to speak with someone who is or has taught in an international school in Singapore. All help appreciated.

    You'd better move fast if you're talking about next September. One top school has already begun interviewing and another one has closing dates coming soon.

    Does anyone know the typical working hours for a secondary teacher in Singapore? How many lessons plus co-curricular activities per week on average?

    Hi T0nyGT can you tell me the names of the 'top' schools please? I've only noticed one or two Singapore schools advertising on here over the last few weeks..

    Hi, I am a Deputy Headteacher also looking for a new challenge with my family in either Malaysia or Singapore. I have applied for a few positions recently and waiting for responses. I am only looking on TES, should I be checking any other sites? What are people's views on whether to choose Malaysia or Singapore??
    Many thanks

    Either is probably far preferable to the UK if you want a few pennies left at the end of each month, nice weather, civil(ish) people, hard working students etc etc. Malaysia is better if you want a large house, maybe with a pool, lots of space etc - sort of think suburban living. SIngapore is better for the city life, but is also strangely suburban (in comparison to HK, BKK, HCMC etc). Singapore - high wages, high rents, excellent transport system, expensive to have a car etc
    I lived in Malaysia, and would prefer not to go back. I would consider Singapore, but not in preference to BKK or HKG. Different horses different courses...,

    That's really interesting, why do you think that you would not go back to Malaysia?
