Re: 32K - Average Salary for International Teachers?

Goodness. [quote=PsyGuy post_id=60938 time=1614931267 user_id=68047] @Sid Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. I do not have to prove or provide you with support for my claims.

Re: PE Teachers and schools that only locally hire

Huge swathes of schools rely on local PE teachers. As a married couple with a non-PE half, you have a better chance than a single PE teacher. Some schools will look at an int'l PE teacher as part of a couple since the expense isn't that much more. But the extra cost is real (flights, insurance, hous...

Re: Charterhouse Asia

Expanding, or franchising? Too many schools have licensed others to use their names. The franchises end up with completely separate operations, leaders, policies, curriculum, students.... Can one really replicate a long-standing, well-financed school for mother tongue English speakers of predominant...

Re: 32K - Average Salary for International Teachers?

Oh PG, such a reach. So you found “data points relevant to a global average of mean salaries” for other professions. Bully for you. But that is not the same thing as a source for a global average, neither for those professions, nor for international teachers. One cannot simply add together the numbe...

Re: Ghosted

I doubt you'll get a real answer. Those of us who always "take care of business", or claim to, will simply say that we do. Two of us already have. Those who do not are unlikely to pop up and explain themselves. The only real explanations are some combination of laziness, reluctance to deli...

Re: Should we pull out of China move?

All of which may be true, but your first post about Qatar had nothing to do with the pandemic. Your thinking seems quite muddy, and your ethics quite selfish. There are those on this board who will encourage you to think of no one but yourself and family, and damned be any school that falls an inch ...

Re: 32K - Average Salary for International Teachers?

PG's in a tough spot. Not only does he have to come up with a source for his claim, he has to come up with a source that says the average is 32K. Even the sources he offers for other professions don't do what he says they do: They don't offer a worldwide average salary. All they do is list the avera...

Re: Should we pull out of China move?

Then pull out now.
International life isn’t for everyone, and this level of doubt suggests it’s not for you.
Nothing has changed, since you signed, except your mind.

Re: Teaching in China

The country might increase or decrease obstacles. That’s true across the world. What matters in this case is how the school handles that. Are teachers supported? Still on payroll? Given timely updates, acknowledging what the school does and does not know, does and does not control? Our school, in a ...

Re: Reference

There is no norm, other than the norm that schools have been upping their requirements for child protection reasons.
This is a major reason I use an agency. All my references are on file going back yonks.

Re: Applying to Dubai

Dubai can be a gamble. Some love it, some hate it. And the sparkly establishments (we shouldn't mention specific names) come in various flavors, some of which are better suited for certain personalities. I myself quite enjoyed the ME, in the right school and the right country. Others hate it, even i...

Re: Should we pull out of China move?

How did that school do getting teachers in for August 2020? If they did well and treated people with respect, expect the same in 2021.
