Re: Principal training in Canada?

Thanks for the feedback. Can you please share a link to the organization and/or process as it is documented? Any support to be "helpful" would be greatly appreciated. This is the closest I can find, and it is more focused on advocacy and development than certification. http://bcpvpa.bc.ca/ This is a...

Re: Principal training in Canada?

Getting the same pressure @shadowjack. I contacted a few districts/schools in the autumn to make initial contact, but they all said hiring for 2018-2019 wouldn't really start until the Spring, which leaves it awfully late for us to have no guarantee of a job, current school's signing date was mid-oc...

Re: Canada - foreign teacher

So just thought I would add my 2c to a pointless argument. What else to do while on a holiday right? It is good to know that some members of the forum have fully embraced the notion of "alternative facts" so whole-heartedly. I have provided a link to the NCEE, an organization that - education system...

Re: Administrative Certification

There definitely seems to be a need in most of the school's I have been applying to. The required qualifications typically list the need for both an advanced degree (preferably in leadership/administration) AND an administrators certificate. I think some reasonable schools will accept the PTC certif...

Re: Administrative Certification

Thanks for the advice folks, I am registered for the exam at a local office later in the year. I also plan on completing the PTC certification, but through applying to a range of schools some seem pretty hung up on a "certificate" rather than a degree. At any rate, hopefully this will tick the neces...

Re: Administrative Certification

Thanks for the information, hadn't heard of this route and was dreading having to do a full certificate program. Will look into it, thanks again!

Administrative Certification

I am hoping to get some advice on gaining either a state or provincial administrative certificate through an online program. I have been researching for awhile and have not been able to find anything appropriate. I am aware of the PTC and plan on attending and completing this over the next two years...

Re: Beijing Questions

Don't expect it to fall anytime soon. There is a desperate hope some new reforms and tax changes for landlords will help, but it hasn't made an effect on the ground. If you want to live in the city, you are going to be paying to live in the city. Even out in the burbs (where I live) prices are high....

Re: UWC Schools and Armenia

Well that exits me from a pointless conversation, and proves conclusively you have limited to no experience in anything close to a decent school in not only Asia but just about anywhere else in the world. I wouldn't hesitate to work in any UWC, you are guaranteed to be working with exceptional stude...

Re: UWC Schools and Armenia

Not sure where Psyguy is getting his information but the UWC program is highly respected on the international circuit and also highly exclusive in terms of student admission. The school in Singapore is massive with 2 campus' and over 4000 students, it was the school the Singapore government selected...

Re: Newly Certified P.E. Teacher

@bendetwile2 I understand the importance of first impressions, but you are underestimating the changing nature of the interviews and how fairs like Search Bangkok work. Most schools will have scouted for experience and references well ahead of the fair. My current school is asking for commitment and...

Re: Newly Certified P.E. Teacher

@shadowjack Just curious why you think there is a huge surplus of PE teachers? I make a habit of keeping up with vacancies even if I am not looking, and for the past few years PE has been one of the highest demand subjects in terms of number of vacancies, only a little behind the "core" group of E/M...

If by UAE public schools you mean the ADEC organization you will be working in a public school as such, but not as you would recognize it from your experience. Your role would be both consulting teacher, support teacher, subject teacher and ESOL teacher. The UAE curriculum is a little confused as th...
