If you’ve ever thought about teaching overseas but were not sure where to start, we recommend that you attend the upcoming Search Associates International teaching seminars and interviews.

One on one meetings are provided for interested teachers following the seminar. These meetings are informal and provide an opportunity to explore your educational and professional background.

Nick Kendell, who has worked internationally as a teacher, a Principal and now a recruiter, will then be better placed to give a candid appraisal of your chances of gaining overseas employment and advise you of the best way to move forward to an exciting and fulfilling career.

Why come to a seminar and interview?
- Nick outlines the qualities successful international teachers possess, shares tips about interviewing over Skype and succeeding at job fairs.
- Review your current CV with Nick who will assess it from the perspective of a recruiter and help you present it in the best format for international schools.
- Learn what opportunities exist for experienced teachers overseas and discover what schools abroad really want.
- Take the mystery out of the process of applying for international schools. In 2002, there were around 1,000,000 international school students and it is predicted that the number of students in international schools will reach six million in another ten years and that the number of international schools will increase from 6,000 today to 10,000. All schools registered with Search Associates have been through an accreditation process and have been thoroughly assessed for suitability.
- Search Associates helps you find the school that is the right 'fit' for you.
- Working and living abroad is an exciting opportunity, but it is a big step to take and we aim to help teachers get a feel for what it is really like –the challenges as well as the opportunities.

- How to use our database (with access to over 600 schools). Nick looks at information supplied by the schools, such as curriculum, demographics of staff and student population, working days, holiday information, sample salary, and location listed for different schools.
- Job Fairs - what to expect and how to be successful - interviewing, what to bring, etc.
- Binding contracts- what to expect.
- CV Preparation
- Qualifications needed to succeed.
- How to navigate the on-line application form and present your information.

Can I attend a seminar without having started an application? You do not have to have anything prepared in order to come to a seminar. It is useful, however, to have a CV that we can look at together, as international schools like to read condensed versions. We also recommend starting an application as early as possible, in order to give referees plenty of time to write their references.

I'm not ready to leave yet - should I attend the seminar? You are very welcome to come to the seminar and listen to the presentation. You do not have to meet with Nick after the seminar. This can take place over Skype, whenever you are ready.

If you are unable to attend an interview and would like to see a free snapshot of Nick's seminar, please email - nkendell@searchassociates.com
