Here are some things to consider when choosing to teach abroad:
- The political and economic stability of the country
- Local customs, dress, culture, religious beliefs
- The teacher package (most packages include a base salary, return airfare, vacation time, health insurance, and accommodation. Some packages also include a tuition benefit for dependents and on-site travel and furniture costs)
- The curriculum (there are several overseas schools offering a Canadian curriculum—many are modified to include local language and culture/religion classes; be sure you are comfortable with the curriculum before signing a contract)
- Local Partners (some local partners are not trained educators and may have a different philosophy about education—it is important to understand the level of involvement of the private partner
- How does the overseas work affect your pension back home?
