Having taught in the UK for 14 years, I am beginning to seriously consider a change of scenery to an overseas position. Something has been advertised in a school in Europe, which is a promoted post (ie likely to be offered on a permanent basis). It is in a large international school which I had heard of, and I did work with a colleague some years ago (no longer in touch) who had worked there. I have every reason to believe it is regarded as a "premier division" school! As seems to be the norm, there is no salary or t&cs attached to this post, just an invitation to send a CV and covering letter. At what stage do I ask about salary? I suspect it may be lower than UK pay scales (although the additional responsibility may help). That's not a problem, but I do need to know that I can live independently on what is being paid. I don't want to waste time applying if the salary is peanuts, but I'm not sure what the protocol is to enquire? I'm not sure it's going to look good if my first contact with the school is "How much would you pay me?". Also, at what point do I see the t&cs, to make sure there's nothing odd in there that they aren't declaring? Is it just a leap of blind faith, or are there suitable ways of finding out?
