Hello! I've seen a few posts on here with lots of advice and help for trailing spouses heading abroad with their partner and I was looking for some more specific advice regarding our situation and whether it is plausible or we need to have a big old re-think!! My boyfriend is a fully qualified teacher and has good experience even though he is only a few years qualified. (I doubt he would struggle to get employed) but he has his heart set on Dubai mainly for the money and benefits or other middle eastern countries. I've read a lot of blogs that have suggested it would be increasingly difficult for me to go with him. As I would be a trailing spouse (girlfriend- not married!) I am quite worried about how/if/where I would fit in out there!? I am an unqualified teacher but I have a BaHons degree in dance and drama and 2 years experience as a HLTA, cover supervisor teaching PE and dance etc... and also experience with early years education. What do you think? Would I perhaps find an international school who would be willing to offer me work alongside? Or would I just have an un-feesable visa battle on my hands along with the many other complications of cohabitation etc?? Any advice from ME countries or teachers with trailing spouses would be greatly appreciated! There is so many conflicting information out there I'm a little lost! I also like the look of Thailand and Asia! Would we have any better luck searching for work and living there together ? Thanks!
