With September just around the corner, we have our busiest season of the year upon us. New and experienced teachers are looking for teaching jobs abroad, and our inbox is inundated with their CVs and cover letters.
One of the first stages to teaching abroad is to examine what kinds of teaching jobs are out there and get to know the keywords and terminology before applying, so that you sound like you've done the research & are prepared for teaching in a new country. Besides reading the award-winning, Guide to Teaching in London: A Survival Guide for Canadians, another great idea is to look at the current job openings in our London schools.
Classroom Ltd is now posting all of the current jobs on facebook, where they know most of the teachers spend heaps of time (myself included, as much as I try to limit my time on facebook, I do find myself getting sucked in much more than I expect!). Just like the page & check out the job feed as often as you like. You will see terms like KS1, KS2, A Levels, Maths (instead of Math), Humanities (English & Geography). Keep reading this blog & the ebook and you'll have a handle on the new terms in no time.
