Future teachers learn about international education from Search team

Education students and graduates interested in a career in teaching will learn about the fantastic opportunities offered by international schools at a seminar presented later this month by two Search Associates representatives.

Senior Associate Michael Williams and his Executive Assistant Vince Pecchia will give students at the Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon an introduction to teaching and working in international schools, including tips on how to successfully navigate an international teaching job search.

With a wealth of international school administrative experience, Michael  outlines career opportunities in the international education scene and explains the challenges and pitfalls of the recruitment process.

Michael said: 

“This is a great opportunity for Search to talk to the next generation ofinternational school teachers and staff about what it’s really like to teach,work and live abroad, what they can expect when they are ready to startapplying for their first job and to give them some useful advice on how tonegotiate the process.”

He added: 

“The idea of working abroad can seem both exciting but daunting to new teachers, so it is important to answer any questions they might have. It’s also a great chance for Search Associates to keep in touch with new teachers coming through to see what issues matter to them.”

International Teaching for Licensed Educators is being held on Tuesday, October 30 at 5pm at the Lewis and Clark College.
