The benefits of teaching abroad
There are a number of obvious benefits to teaching overseas including the opportunity to explore other cultures, countries and climates. The reality is also that many teachers who move abroad find that they are better off financially as a result of the move. While salaries and packages of benefits vary from country to country and school to school they often include:
- Tax free or low tax salaries;
- Additional payments for additional responsibilities;
- Free of charge housing or housing allowances;
- Flight allowances for trips home;
- Medical cover and end of contract bonuses.
What makes a great international teacher?
Outstanding international teachers have a global outlook on life and this is evidenced through their teaching. They must possess cultural sensitivity, personal resilience and the willingness to adapt to new situations and environments. Those open minded teachers who are willing to embrace their new environments, their new culture and who jump in with both feet are most likely to succeed.
