They typically require teaching credentials from your home country and at least two years' experience teaching your subject area, and often strongly prefer a master's and 5+ years' experience.

To teach non-science/math subjects at all levels....you'll need at least a teaching license from your home country and 2 years experience (this is the bare minimum).

Restrictions are less stringent if you are looking to teach science/math at higher levels (high school, AP-level). They prefer to have those with teaching credentials and experience, but will sometimes take those with strong background degrees (i.e. maths, chemistry, physics, biology), especially MSc and PhD holders.

The top and second tier international schools are (usually) picky and elitist...and rightly so. But lower tier schools tend to use the above criteria.

Try looking at the schools' sites.

there is a pretty large forum on the internationalschool sreview website.  Very similar to waygook with quite a lot of newbie questions and questions about regions and particular schools.  They also have a paysite area that gives detailed reviews on individual schools along with their benefits/pay scales.  It is worth a look at.
