switching to an International school
« on: November 03, 2014, 09:43:14 am »
Has anyone made the switch from a public school in Korea to an International school (anywhere)? I just wondered what process you went through and if public school teaching was enough (as a certified teacher).
Thanks!

I am commenting to also hear about this, I want to switch from public to international as well.
I am a certified high school language arts teacher.

If you're a certified teacher, Google international schools in the area you'd like to work and see if they have openings for what you'd like to teach.  Many schools post vacancies on their websites and you can apply directly.  You could also sign up with recruiters who specialize in international schools, they usually like to meet you face to face at various recruiting fairs they have around the world and can usually place you then and there.

If you're not certified, get certified and see above.

I am considering switching as well but International schools aren't really a big thing here in Korea. Of the few that are here in Korea (almost all of which are in Seoul) most are Christian affiliated and require a statement of faith along with teaching certifications from abroad. Just an FYI.

Can I make the statement of faith in the form of modern dance?

There seems to be a few down by Busan way, there are many Western ex-pat families near Geoje Island/Busan/Ulsan due to the ship building industry.
