As I search for my next position, I promised to let other teachers know my processes at each stage. At the moment, I have narrowed down the countries in which I would really like to work, would be an excellent fit for my family, and which I aspire to live. Within these countries, I have closely looked at the schools. My first point of call is always the mission statement and ethos. Then the message from the director. Following this, I check the curriculum offered, any community/well-being initiatives and where available, data on the students and faculty.
This week I will write some prospective applications. At this point, I feel my job search has real direction. However I didn’t just decide upon certain countries and schools by chance or on a whimsy. My info graphic should hopefully give other aspiring international teachers ideas on what to do after joining agencies and creating a great CV.
