Re: China closed

[quote=TheHuman post_id=58852 time=1588389093 user_id=250723] I heard it from several teachers who are in China now who heard it from someone they know that has ties with an immigration official.

Re: Masters in Education

This is all very useful everyone, thanks so much! I'd like to do a Masters because I'm interested but also for career reasons. The cost is attractive, but at the same time I don't want to be working for hundreds of hours on something that doesn't advance me as much as other MAs, either personally or...

Masters in Education

Has anybody had any experience with the MEd offered by University of the People?

https://www.uopeople.edu/programs/ed/de ... ation-med/

It seems to be accredited and is officially endorsed by the IB, but will it be taken seriously by employers?

Re: Cambridge exams

I did think that initially, but surely not! What's to stop schools saying, 'I don't have evidence but all the grades were good'? Even if schools are honest, then there's going to be so many evidence gaps that it becomes impossible to do it fairly. Imagine two schools: one with loads of evidence, one...

Cambridge exams

Cambridge have announced that they plan to award grades based on mock exams, assignments etc. - and want to see the physical evidence! How on earth can they think it's possible to get this from students, especially as they are scattered across the world? Even under normal circumstances this would be...

Re: China closed

You are assuming that every school is callous, and that it's clear they will just behave in the worst way. Most might, but not all, so for those that are more staff focused, then it is clearly more problematic than you outline. What is legally possible and what is morally fair are two different thin...

Re: China closed

The IT hasn't abandoned their position if they physically aren't allowed into the country anymore, and were never previously told that they must return, especially if the employer has been consistently sympathetic. Additionally, there's one flight per week to China now, and plenty of countries have ...

Re: China closed

Some fair points, but a few further observations: 1. Shuffling things around / getting new staff in the interim. Where does that leave teacher sout of the country who are currently doing live learning? Does this carry on or do schools just tell them to stop and not pay them? That is unclear and quit...

Re: China closed

Not sure I agree with some of that PsyGuy. Despite that quote you posted, that only applies to exceptional individuals, as confirmed by schools who themselves have been informed by government bodes, so most definitely not regular teachers at international schools. So, to all intents and purposes, te...

China has just announced a ban on all foreigners with visas and work permit. I wonder how this will affect the remainder of the school year and administrative processes and recruitment for next year!

Re: European adverts?

Hmm Spring is very late! Is there any reason for this? Does it apply to the more prestigious schools too? I have to hand my notice in by December, so looks like I'll be taking a gamble!

European adverts?

Hi

I'm interested in schools in Europe starting August 2020, particularly those in Germany, Netherlands and Belgium. However, I'm not seeing any vacancies for these countries - can anybody shed some lights on when the busiest time is for recruitment in these countries?

Thanks!
