TES Connect - an invaluable teacher resource
We blog a lot about different resources to help teachers plan their move overseas. Over and over again, I find myself recommending to Canadian and American teachers interested in teaching in London to check out TES Connect.
The TES - or Times Educational Supplement - is a newspaper dedicated to teachers & education. Their website is packed with useful information for all teachers. The community is a place where you can discuss issues and post your questions and is the place I recommend for you. You can also see jobs posted by schools across the UK. If you're keen to apply, please read this post first.
You can also sign up to receive e-newsletters which highlight a variety of topics discussed on the site such as:
What do you do when they say NO!
How do you deal with pupils who just refuse to do what they're told?
Advice on how to deal with a TA who is difficult to manage.
How do you seat your class?
Teachers compare their favoured classroom layouts.
Job application howlers
The daft things applicants do that drive the appointments committee crazy.
