Teaching at an International School

Teaching is a noble profession, but the new age teaching has more to do than just chalk and talk. Teaching at an international school is different from teaching at indigenous private schools. Subject knowledge is not the only thing that counts.

It is also important to bring in creative inputs and keep track of the latest developments in the subject to deliver the best and the most recent to the students. Teaching at an international school can be challenging and at the same time very rewarding. If you want to get information about international schools then you can visit this website.

The qualifications to teach at an IB school would be the same as other private schools may ask of you. But it is preferable to know at least one foreign language and get a TEFL certificate. This will make you eligible to teach english as a second language that most international schools offer.

If you do not have a TEFL certificate,but have other qualifications and relevant experience to match, it should suffice. You may also need to be acquainted with different accents of English to help expat students understand better. You may also be required to teach using electronic teaching aids in class. Be prepared to do that.

There are several perks that you as a teacher and person can get by working at international schools. Firstly, the salary is generally higher than what you get at an indigenous private school.

These schools generally have workshops that hone your teaching skills and help expand your knowledge about the subject. You can be a part of the PTAs or other associations in schools and grow personally as well as help the students. Most importantly, you get to spend time at a splendid campus that is characteristic of all international schools.
