Hello TNL

Good to hear from you. Looking forward to a new challenge, its going to be one long, hard slog until the end of the academic year but we are both so excited we are sure it will fly by.

If you manage to find anything out about accommodation/school/parents... then please let us know and we look forward to getting to know you over the next few months.

Andy and Julie.

HELP!!

There are SO many old threads on this subject!!!

To the teachers that moved out for the academic year 2014-2015 - how are you finding the accommodation? Is it what you expected?

To the teachers with children - do they provide 3 bedroomed apartments if you have 2 children? Do they provide free schooling for your children?

Is it possible to live without a car?!!

I'm applying for jobs starting September 2015, but have SO many questions and can't find recent answers to my questions!!

Vicki

Hi Vicki,

You can usually get school places for up to two children, although this will depend on the school that you apply to. Some may offer a percentage of each child's place.

It depends upon the age of your children as to whether you will get 3 bedrooms, children under a certain age (I think it might be 12) are usually expected to share a room.

You can get around the city with a car, many people do, but it depends on where you are living in relation to your school and where you want to visit that will impact this decision. Often some one in the group of new starters will get a car and folks share a ride and split the fuel bill. If you have children though this probably won't be an option for you.

I don't live in school accommodation as I am on a local contract not an international one, but am aware of the systems!

Good luck finding your answers, it can be a trying time but it was worth it for our family!

Dear all,
I may be a teacher at Silicon Oasis pretty soon. It is good to see staff are friendly on the posts. Reassuring that people are willing to help.

Are there parks in the Silicon Oasis / Business Bay area?

Questions on accommodations for teachers joining Bradenton Prep. Does anyone know where families of 3 are housed? I'll be starting in Sept. 2015 and I'm curious of the current teachers opinions of working there and curious about the accomodations.

Anyone?

Hi there!

I'm sorry to butt in on this thread but I've been looking around on the forums for info about what schools to apply to and what are the best skills to have in your pocket(i.e. swimming instructor etc.) to secure a teaching position with a decent salary?

I will have a CELTA and Bachelors in German by the end of the summer and I'm starting to send out cvs now. Is it better to apply directly to schools? What room is there for negotiation with regards to salary and what could I expect with no previous teaching experience.

My apologies to interrupt again, and thank you should you reply

Are there any Teachers out there with young families who have experienced the move (or about to) who could offer some advice on certain things (accommodation visas lifestyle etc)?

If so please message me.

Thanks in advance
