Getting work in an international school?

Hello,

My boyfriend has been offered a job at T.E.A.M marketing in Luzern, where we intend to move next year. I will be studying my teaching degree through distance from Australia but would LOVE to get some hands on experience at an international school possibly as a teachers aid. Can anyone suggest how I should go about this? As well as some possible schools to look at?

I eagerly await your advice....

Re: Getting work in an international school?

It is very difficult to get a non qualified job in Switzerland without being a Swiss or EU-national (see Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.).

I wouldn't say your desired course of action is a non-starter, but close.

Bear in mind that unless you are given a work permit you cannot reside in Switzerland other than as a tourist for three months at a time.

I know, but that is why I am giving myself 6 months to try and find a way around it!

Would I automatically get residency if my boyfriend and I were married?

It's not six months in a row, but 90 days over a 180 days period. So three months on, three off.

Yes.

Sorry you misunderstood me, we are not moving from Australia for another 6 months so I am starting my research for getting a job now to see what I can come up with!

Go and do an English TEFL or CELTA course, if you can find work experience in an International School in Australia then this will boost your chances. Look at the IBO website - www.ibo.org and buzz words like PYP. Maybe you stay in Australia longer to get some experience.
