Qualified professionals from the UK seeking to engage in teaching overseas contracts and positions has increased in number across the 21st Century to the extent that it is regarded as a quite commonplace occurrence. Whilst this is highly advantageous and of considerable mutual benefit to both qualified British teachers and to schools around the world, those intending on engaging in it need to be prepared for possibly testing, turbulent transitional times. Astute Education are an organization that are aware of and appreciate this, which has inspired us to be at the forefront of providing all the support and assistance possible for those following and enhancing their careers by teaching overseas.
It may seem like it is stating the obvious, but moving to a different country to teach in can truly be like moving to a different world. Those engaging in teaching overseas have to truly be ready to accept -and embrace – that every single part and element of their life, right down to minor items in grocery stores, will be substantially and visibly different to what they know and have come to regard as being quite commonplace in the UK. No one is going to suggest there is an easy or straightforward way in which one can adjust or adapt to living and working in another country. It can, at the least, be made easier with the right and appropriate level of support, which is exactly what Astute Education offers to those teaching overseas, 24 hours a week, every day of the week.
Whilst the differences in another country can be something of a challenge to get used to, understanding and accepting them is a major part of the learning and experience one attains when teaching overseas. Classroom cultures around the world are just as different and varied as all other elements of society. As much as you will bring the highly sought after expertise and knowledge of UK teaching skills to a different part of the world, so too you will be able to learn and embrace the best of the ways of a different approach to life.
