What is maximum period for GET teaching at same school
« on: February 03, 2016, 10:58:25 am »
Does anyone know what the official policy is on the maximum period a GET can teach at the same school and is the onus on the GET to find another position should her/ his time be up?

In the case of Korean teachers, they can teach up to 4 years maximum

5 years AFAIK. You don't have to find a new position, you can transfer within the same district/city.

It is possible to stay for more than 5 years but your school basically has to campaign to the MOE/POE to do so.

On my 7th year currently at the same two schools. Don't think any campaign was made by either school.

There is no limit for GETs.  Korean teachers must move after 5 years at the same school.

4 years is the limit in my city for KTs. Perhaps depends on individual MOEs/POEs.

*Insofar as I know* there are no particular rules regarding NETs and length of stay at their schools. I'm on my 6th year at the same place (4 years at level 1+) and nobody has mentioned that they had to go through any extra hoops to renew me this last year.   :undecided:

***I'm in Gyeongsangbuk-do. Might be that rules are different elsewhere.

It all depends on your MOE/POE/School. There is no national law about it.

No rules for that as far as I know, but when you start being "too expensive" (2.3 +), all of a sudden they might want a "new teacher"
