I am sure this question has been asked many times before, however I am still very new to this. I am currently doing my teacher training in secondary science. As you can image the question of jobs is now starting to arise. I am at a point in my life where working abroad for a few years is a real possibility. I am looking at British Schools in the Middle East, particularly in Qatar. So my questions are: 1. Is this a bad idea as an NQT? 2. Are the benefits of working abroad as good as everyone says they are? 3. Am I risking working away for a while having an impact on my career when I want to move back to the UK? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
