I am 50+ years old, taught 3 years, substitute taught 15 years. Can any one point me in the right direction for information about teaching in s
Singapore. Should I or should I not make the move? Thanks

MoE (Ministry of Education) would be an obvious place to start your enquiries.

I looked into the MoE website, and that of International Schools. I was looking for help in how to start the process of finding employment when I currently live in the US.. Do I need to contact each school separately? What seems to be the best approach? Any help would be appreciated.

There are a few routes you can take to land an international teaching position. I would check out http://www.tieonline.com and internationalschoolsreview.com. You can post your resume and search for jobs on TIEonline. The other site is to search schools and try to get a feel for what the teaching conditions are like.

I would also suggest a hiring fair like SEARCH or UNI's in the winter. I know a lot of people that have landed jobs at those.

Good luck!

I can put you in touch with the Ministry of Education Foreign Recruitment Unit if that's any use? I reckon they'd be the people to ask!

Actually, as it's a government ministry, you should put the link here in the open board for all to see. That way, we can accomplish what we intent to do. Give answers. If one person keeps the answer to themselves, then it deprives those who follow.......

OK, I just didn't really want to put the guy's email address all over the internet...

I'm sure a quick google would tell you much the same. He seems to be a friendly chap and I'm sure he'd be willing to answer any questions you might have or point you in the right direction.

I've just been placed in a MOE school through him as my initial point of contact.

I have removed his name & email. I meant do you have a hyperlink that you used before getting his direct access? To make initial contact with him? - mod
