List of schools that hire without Schrole-ISS or Search?

Hey everyone, I am currently back in my home country, but I flirt with the idea of going back internationally. Paying for an account and making profiles for more than a flirtation is not worth it. I just want to put feelers out, but I'm not seriously considering going back abroad at this time. I'm c...

Re: How long is your commute?

This is such an interesting debate to see. I'm currently in my home country, but when I was abroad I preferred to be within walking distance to where I work or 5-10 minutes by car/bike. I now draw the line at 45 minutes by car. Up to an hour by transit. I like having the time to listen to a podcast....

Re: TES Community forums are now gone

In terms of where people will move to... I wonder if reddit will become more popular. There already is an International Teachers subreddit on there. I actually think reddit is perfect for international teachers to talk and I'm surprised more don't use it. It has anonymity and it's too big of a compa...

Re: Competitiveness in 2020

I agree with everything you said. I never thought that IE is finished and host nationals will be a key driver of IE in the future. I was just saying that I think Tier 1/2 schools (that primarily cater to expats) will struggle with enrolment during Covid and the post-Covid transition. However, it mig...

Re: Cover letter length

I have a follow-up question to this. How do you cut everything down to one page for resume? I've never been able to do it.

Re: Competitiveness in 2020

Also, school enrolment (particularly in schools with expats) will probably be lower in IE than it's ever been. It might stay low as well. Most multinational companies post-Covid have realized that much of the work high-paid expats do can be done from the main office, or they can hire someone local t...

Making decisions on schools based on Covid?

Are any of you making decisions about schools to go to based on Covid? For example, it seems that many of the Gulf States (e.g. UAE, Qatar) and some East Asian nations (e.g. SK, Mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore) have dealt with Covid pretty successfully (especially compared to places like Europe an...

Re: Moving from China to Europe - advice???

While I agree it's possible to save money in Europe, I think many of you are severely understating the ability to budget as a major factor. I don't think budgeting is a skill that most international teachers possess. In the most 3rd tier of schools in China you don't really need to know how to budge...

Re: ISS, Search or both? Bangkok 2020

I'll just add my two cents on the issue. I think that Search definitely has a higher ceiling when it comes to school tiers, but it also has a lower floor. With ISS-Schrole I've got a bit more of a guarantee that I won't end up at a school that's a mess. I'm pretty new in my career (5 years) so I don...

Re: Tech Free

None. This tech free movement isn't gaining enough traction for it to become a big influence.

Kids as young as 6 are already being exposed to coding concepts. Coding during primary age is more likely to become mainstream (if it isn't already).
