Don’t scoff. I only ask because I am seriously looking at taking a job in the Gulf. You might remember, if not – KEEP UP, that I have recently finished my PGCE, but I can’t find a job in the UK, well at least not where I would like to work. So having looked on the TES website at the list of job on there (like I said very few in the UK) I noticed one or two in the Gulf. This morning, I have spoken to a lovely lady who works at putting UK qualified teachers in touch with schools in Kuwait, Oman and other far flung destinations. So what do I do? Do I take the chance to go out for a year (10 months actually) and get my NQT year under my belt in a British school in the middle east. Or do I bite the bullet, tighten my belt and stick it out in Blighty until something comes along?
