The Older Teachers Thread

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by AlexanderBrandy, Feb 16, 2011.

  1. Cambodia could be an option. The visa rules are very lax. No age limit, no degrees even needed. Just pay 25 US dollars and you are good to go. The cost of living is low so it helps in terms of saving. However the pool of good international schools is narrow (about three or four really). I don't know whether those schools would be interested in her background, but I do know that her age and qualifications wouldn't be an obstacle.

    As long as you are under 60 when applying for the visa, there is often no problem in having it renewed, even if you go above 60 during the contract.

    Mrs A and I love Egypt, and are looking forward to their success!
  7. You need another Cheers order, old boy. Sounds like you're rifling through your present stock.

  8. Now why does every thread degenerate into something about Cairo/Egypt? Weren't you lot content with your own (almost) megathreads?
  9. Egypt, Cairo, revolution, rich people getting arrested, passion, passion, passion...
    Or should we just talk about old people? [​IMG]
    Anyway, Cairo came about because they do employ old fossils.
    I mean just look, Alfa is here...

  10. Referring to the original question, provided that you are not in China already[​IMG], there are many possibilities for older teachers who wish to continue even beyond 'retirement' age (whatever that's going to turn out to be!) She might not qualify for a 'top tier' school, but with a little shopping around, there are a number of prospects which would happily accept someone who knows what they're doing and has the experience to back it up. I have taught in China (and Taiwan) over the years in a couple of respectable establishments, and have friends, well over the age of 60, who continue to enjoy teaching the students and living in China, where the pay package will allow you to save for when you want, rather than are forced, to retire.
