Teaching abroad is a chance to push yourself out of your comfort zone, gain experience, develop an understanding of different cultures and come out of it a wiser, interesting and well-rounded individual. People often talk about how travelling the world allows you to ‘ find yourself ’, this may or may not be true but most of us are not able to blow several thousand pounds of our parent’s trust fund money to finance drinking beer on various beaches for a year. Teaching abroad, however, will let you experience other cultures and explore new countrie, while also earning a decent income.


#1 You will be more employable when you return home

Head teachers are always on the lookout for teachers who have spent time working abroad. It shows that they are adaptable, committed and have developed some real life experience, which is always useful when inspiring students. This is especially important when applying for secondary teaching jobs, where a few exciting stories will really help you engage with your students. Signing up for a specialist education recruitment company like edustaff is a great place to start when you return home.

#2 You will gain a new perspective

Taking the plunge and moving to a new country can give you a new lease of life and working in a new part of the world will mean you gain a better understanding of the way other people live. You might also find that you prefer the way people live in the part of the world you move to and decide to stay, or perhaps you will leave with a greater respect for what you see as a harder way of life. Either way gaining an understanding in other cultures is sure to help you become a more well-rounded and accepting individual.


#3 See the world

Teaching abroad provides you with a fantastic chance to explore countries that would otherwise cost you a lot to get to. Many schools will pay for flights for their teachers so they can go home, which you can use to visit other countries instead. In addition, those who teach abroad will usually have more time off than teachers in the UK.


#4 Unique Way of Experiencing the Culture

Unlike travelling the world backpacking working abroad gives teachers the chance to live a double life, particularly for those of you taking primary teaching vacancies. One minute you will be taking the bus in the wrong direction or trying to mime Diarrhea to a chemist, the next you are taking charge of a class of eager children who are looking to you to learn English. It’s a unique feeling and one that doesn’t get boring as there are surprises on every corner and you are learning yourself easily as much as you are teaching others.


If you are still not convinced about what teaching abroad can offer you, you don’t have to take my word for it. Take a look at this blog and learn more about other people’s experiences teaching around the world.
