@geoguy Currently, yes you can take the MEGA for Professional Knowledge: Secondary exam remotely, including OS. You need to renew it every three years to maintain validity, but if you allow it to lapse you dont have to do anything but apply for reinstatement. You need only apply to renew it and pay ...

Compared to the work of getting one when youre not in country its very likely easier to get one before you leave. BC probably isnt going to care very much outside of the CAN CRB.

Zero, it was a school where salary was zero for the first term. You got housing, and some other minor allowances but you were essentially a volunteer intern/apprentice. If after the first term they liked you they offered you a contract with salary for the remaining 20 months, but there was still no ...

Regardless of how @Sid feels if your recruiter/leaders knew of something they were under obligation to discuss it with you, so either your other sources are wrong or your recruiter isnt being forthcoming with you. I expect its the latter. They either allowed themselves to be ignorant and negligent i...

Thats way too long of a list. Most Iss are not with a premium agency. If you just focus on only the ISC data there are over 12K ISs, and SA Schrole have less than 10% of that and thats just ISC. I concur with @Heliotrope in that you should be able to apply to an IS directly from its web portal, and ...

I dont know who is saying you can save a lot of coin? I cant find that reference in the post. While I dont distinguish boarding ISs from other day ISs or other ISs in general, what I did state is that you can make 6 figures, and I stated that because its true. I realize there are different position ...

It depends on where youre retiring and what the medical care situation and cost is. Ideally 1M but you could find scenarios where half that (500K) would be doable. @Sid ISR didnt edit your post, the filters just caught your term as a potentially offensive word. If you want to type ana1ysis substitut...

@mike.mcmillen24 There are two exams for MA, the MTEL subject matter exam for PE and the MTEL in communication literacy. Degree majors dont matter so much for assessment based pathways, they can in some instances (IE. UT AEL Secondary credentials) but for the most part passing the requisite exam is ...

@geoguy They kind of had to. They would have cut their own throats if they didnt. Why do induction when you dont have to. No, only the MO option has a specific doctoral route. The MA route is available to anyone who has a bachelors/first degree and passes the credentialing exams. Yes, absolutely, it...

Yes. You cant technically legally work without a work permit for the employer your providing services to. If your work permit has been canceled youre not permitted to work. I understand the situation youre probably in. Your moving jobs and your new employer needs to obtain a new permit for you befor...

Truly horrific train wreck ISs dont exist for very long. If no one will work there, than the IS doesnt have faculty and doesnt ultimately have students. This means that while there are ISs that a majority of ITs find toxic, there is a minority group of ITs who can function or even thrive in such ISs...

Thats absolute bunk. There are ITs teaching in tier 1&2 ISs who went through skills route pathways such as TeachNow or have a PGCEi. There are fewer of them and it often takes longer and its more challenging but it happens.
