Teaching Overseas

Teachers have moved between Australia and other countries for many years. This has been via exchange, as a new experience, to teach English to non-English speakers, or even as part of a working holiday. There are education systems, other agencies and international programs, that make this a possibility. Each groups seeks to make the experience a professionally and personally enjoyable, rewarding experience.

As with any activity, always check the bona fides of any company or organisation you use. Be as knowledgeable as you can when considering teaching in a culture entirely different to your own. In addition to other factors [accommodation, food, language, …], you may be expected to operate under conditions and/or in ways [techniques, procedures] that are not what you expect or feel comfortable with. Careful preparation/investigation can only result in a more enjoyable, secure and fulfilling experience both professionally and personally.

This page gives access to many of these groups. Most target particular world areas and/or subjects. There is an emphasis on links for the Asia/Pacific region, North America and the UK. Specific areas such as TEFL, TESL and TESOL are included. So too are the Teacher Exchange programs which operate in several states.

While many options are listed, no specific recommendations are given, except for the exchange process where we had a very positive experience in both respects.

Teacher Exchange

Teacher Exchange Programs operate in multiple states and territories, often in several formats. These are especially good if you don’t want to give up your current position; can [by agreement] swap accommodation, even transport; and usually have additional support throughout the whole experience, even though there may be variations between different programs. For states and territories not included below, we can only suggest checking with education departments and even unions.

We highly recommend this process based on our own experience.
