teaching at SIS or similar

Hello Folks,

I'm wondering if anyone has had experience working as a teacher for an International school in Switzerland? I notice SIS Zug and Zurich has lots of opens atm. I would love to know a little more about how things work - contracts, wages, relief teaching ect..
Your help is appreciated, Thanks

Re: teaching at SIS or similar

I would say ymmv. It will very much depend upon your background, experience and expectation.

First: are you a qualified teacher? Second: are these openings in subjects you are able to teach?

In my experience teaching at a private international school... it was great but very different to what I had been used to in the UK. My contract and its renewal depended upon how many takers for my subjects.

It's like any teaching role I suppose: apply, interview, see if you're a fit and if so, hope you get tge job.

There do seem to be a lot of folk chasing not a lot of roles though so schools can afford to be, understandably, very choosy.

Good luck.
