I WANT TO GO OVERSEAS ONLY FOR A YEAR. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
The typical contract for teachers is two years. Intern contracts are usually for one year. The school’s investment is high, both in financial expense and time, in bringing a teacher overseas. Schools need professional staff who are fully focused on the school and the students. A two-year commitment is reasonable and goes by quickly. Occasionally, a school might be willing to sign a teacher for a year or less (for example, if the teacher is finishing the year for another teacher); however, two years is the norm.
