Re: Top Schools In Europe

No sweeping statements. I said I know someone who was able to to save well while teaching at the Luxembourg school although commuting from France, and there's nothing false about that. She was happy enough there. This was a few years ago though, maybe even a decade, so apparently it has changed a lo...

Re: Top Schools In Europe

There's also a very good post on the paid forum, that lists all the international schools most teachers agree on are Tier 1.

Re: Beginning Of The End for China Foreign Teachers?

I agree that Taiwan is not part of China, but I wouldn't say that in China, and def not in a classroom there. If I had no other offers, I would accept a job in China if the school was one of the three I once shortlisted even if I had to take that course. Too bad lot of the higher paying jobs are in ...

You state it's about the pay rise, so just pick one that will accepted by all schools, such as a 'Masters of Education', a MA in your field or a Leadership MA.

Re: Inclusivity

Have seen similar things. It def takes a commitment from the school, which is easier when it's a tier 1 school with a wait list such as the one Heliotrope works at. Lower tier schools that are struggling to keep enrolment at capacity will be quicker to give in to pressure from parents. Have also see...
