We’re receiving numerous letters asking about international teaching contracts. What should be included and what to keep an eye out for are just a few of the questions at the top of the list. We direct your attention to our recent Contract Satisfaction Survey in which teachers discuss what they like and dislike about their contracts; and what they would include if they were the ones designing a contract. Originally posted in 2008, we feature this article today as it is most pertinent during recruiting season.
More than 100 teachers responded to our Contract Satisfaction Survey. Their responses are both candid and to the point and we feel there’s a lot of knowledge to be gleaned from reading what our colleagues have volunteered to share with us all.
We have posted the responses to the Contract Satisfaction Survey in their complete form, with a separate web page devoted to the answers to each question–this seemed like the most logical way to present such a wide variety of responses. Plus, in this format, you are free to draw your own conclusions as required by your individual situation.
