Re: contacting schools through SA and through their school e

For me, the golden rule is do whatever the school asks. I’d look at their Search page and also at their website to see how they prefer applications. If there are no specific instructions, I’d send a letter of application (with my resume) that clearly states you’re registered with Search.

How to impress on a school tour

Hi all, I'm hoping for some help from the collective wisdom of the board. I'm visiting a school in Singapore this week during vacation that I want to interview for shortly after when jobs are listed.

What would you do to create a positive impression with a recruiter on a school tour?

Aquatics Directors

Hey, I am considering switching career paths to become an Aquatics director and hoped to seek out collective wisdom. Without wanting to 'out' myself publicly, I believe I have the necessary background and qualifications so that is not what I need to know. My question is how common are the positions ...

Living and salary in Zurich

Does anyone have any idea of the standard of living in Zurich for a teacher with a trailing spouse? I'm looking at the elite tier schools where the salary comes in over 70,000+ swiss francs on search ( I have no clue what the actual salary would be). It doesn't seem like housing is included.... Woul...

Re: Beneficial to have multiple teaching certificates?

Thanks Psyguy. I have more than three years experience post certification and I'm just looking to add a U.S. licence. I'm at an elite tier school already but I'd like to open up the option of working in the big American curriculum schools which doesn't seem to be likely without being a U.S./Canadian...

Re: Beneficial to have multiple teaching certificates?

Thank National,

Doe you know which states accept non U.S. citizens who do not live in the U.S. for a licence? My understanding is that many states have a requirement that a non U.S. Citizen must teach in the state from be eligible.

Re: Beneficial to have multiple teaching certificates?

So, following on from teachingagain1945, is there a way for a non US citizen with QTS to get an American licence?

Re: Sinarmas World Academy, Jakarta

There has also been a huge amount of recent negative reviews of the goings on there on the paid section of the site. I'd pay the $30 to read them.
