A Few Myths and Facts That You Need To Know About
International Teaching Jobs
2
  • A career in international education can be one of
    the most rewarding experience a teacher can ever
    have. As a qualified teacher from Canada,
    teaching abroad will provide you with a handful
    of benefits including the opportunity to develop
    new skills and to develop your own educational
    practices. But before you finally decide to work
    abroad, check first these few myths and facts
    about international teaching jobs.
  • If you are an education graduate who is training
    or planning to practice your profession after
    taking the licensure examination, you have lots
    of options and teaching opportunities at hand.
    You can either teach at one of the schools in
    your local community or try your luck abroad.
    Teaching overseas at any international schools
    around the world can be a great option for those
    who are looking for a uniquely rewarding
    experience and a sense of adventure, both
    personally and professionally.

  • But before you finally decide on taking an
    international education career, it pays to know
    these common misconceptions first. Here are a few
    myths and facts about international teaching jobs.

4
Special qualifications
  • Myth You need to have special qualifications in
    order to qualify for a teaching career abroad.
  • Fact A special qualification requirement is not
    always needed. Even a "Teachers of English to
    speakers of other languages" or Tesol
    qualification is not required most of the time.
    For instance, if you will be teaching in an
    English-speaking international school, as a
    qualified teacher from Canada you will no longer
    be asked to undergo certain special qualification
    tests. However, if you are going to countries
    that do not usually use English as one of their
    major languages like for instance Italy, France,
    and Japan, learning more about the different
    communities, cultures, and language of the host
    country is very important.

5
Campuses and facilities
  • Myth If you choose a career in international
    education, expect to have your classes held
    inside a native hut, a cabin, or a decrepit
    building with facilities and equipment that are
    all out-of-date.
  • Fact Most of the international schools that are
    hiring qualified teachers from other countries
    have beautiful campuses with state of the art
    equipment and facilities, sophisticated playing
    fields and auditoriums, and high-end libraries
    and classrooms.

6
Gravity of work
  • Myth The work of an international school teacher
    is so easy and light.
  • Fact Being in another country is not easy.
    Living in a foreign land means that you will have
    to mingle with new people and different
    personalities, learn and get used to new culture
    and traditions, deal with new laws and policies,
    and adapt to a new environment. When it comes to
    the gravity of work, it greatly depends on your
    job description. Regardless of where you are,
    work will always be work.

7
Financial Matters
  • Myth
  • Teaching in an international school will provide
    you with a greener pasture and a more hefty
    income.

8
  • Fact The international contracts and
    compensation packages available today are no
    longer as competitive and as high as during the
    past few years. But this greatly depends on what
    country you will be going to. Although very rare,
    there are still some international schools that
    offer competitive financial packages with
    excellent benefits like traveling allowances from
    your country of origin to the host country and
    vice versa, housing or accommodation allowances,
    professional development funds, and comprehensive
    health care insurance.
  • There are also schools in some countries that
    offer tax-free compensations. This enables
    teachers to save more money than the amount they
    can earn at home. But again, you can rarely meet
    this kind of opportunity today so better do your
    research first before making decisions.
