Maureen Lacey, Senior Recruitment Consultant at Gabbitas, recently appeared in an article in Independent Education Today, a leading educational publication, giving advice to teachers considering working in a school abroad.
42% of all international schools teach the British curriculum, creating a demand for British teachers overseas. Maureen’s advice was to help those interested in teaching abroad to consider all the important factors. It included “Think about the country you would want to live and work in”; “If you have children, is the timing right so that moving to a new school won't disrupt their education”; and “Question whether the contract is local or international”.
