I know of other teachers who have transitioned from being language academy/EFL teachers into subject/homeroom teachers at accredited international schools, despite not having a teacher's qualification (save for TEFL certs). The director then encouraged them to get certified th...

Re: American or Brit Certification/Credential for non-citize

The leap into admin/leadership

Would anybody be able to advise what the switch into admin/leadership typically looks like on the international teaching scene?
