Be Prepared for Tough Interview Questions Credentials, enthusiasm and a burning desire to teach overseas describes nearly 100% of recruiting-fair candidates. So, how do you set yourself above the bar with so many high caliber candidates competing for the same positions? A Director’s gut feeling about how you’ll fit into and adapt to their school and geographical location certainly plays a big part in the decision-making process. For some hardship locations, a “good fit” may be more important than actual years of teaching experience and advanced degrees. But when it comes to competing for the most desirable schools, your answers to some unexpected interview questions can easily make or break the deal: Tell me about yourself. What’s your greatest contribution to your last school? If I walked into your classroom, what would I see? How will your past or current Director describe you when I dial them up? How would your students describe you? Teach me something right now! What’s the last article or book you read on teaching? Which educational journals do you subscribe to? Tell me about a conflict you resolved. Answering tough interview questions is something you definitely don’t want to do impromptu. Of course, if you’re thrown a curve ball you have to swing at it, but anticipating and honing your answers to possible interview questions is obviously the best way to prepare for a successful interview. You just might be Teacher of the Year material but if you can’t convince the interviewer of that, all is for naught. There are many international schools considered to be amongst the most progressive and well-respected schools in the world. But don’t be daunted by that. They need great teachers, and good schools will support their teachers to become part of their learning-focused ethos. So what do these schools look for when hiring new teachers? Here are the top 10 qualities that most international schools look for in the teachers they hire: Enthusiastic teachers who love working with young people Nothing compares with your passion for learning and teaching. So if you’re enthusiastic and committed to meeting the learning needs of each and every student, you’re half way there. Responsible teachers who do their research Finding the right school is important, for both you and your employer. Show that you have done your research, that you know the school, its focus, its philosophy. Demonstrate that you have thought seriously about the location, how you’ll respond to the move, and how you’ll cope with leaving home. Be prepared to explain why you want to move abroad. Teachers who are internationally minded You may be choosing to live and work in a location very different to your home country, and within a culture very different to your home culture. You will be working with students and families from many different countries and backgrounds, and with teachers and school staff who have very different training and experience to what you may be used to. You must be willing to accept and value differences, to respect the country you are living and working in and to be truly internationally minded, in and out of work. Flexible teachers who are able to adapt International schools vary dramatically – in location, size, student intake, staffing, curriculum, philosophy, and more. The best international teachers are willing and eager to adapt, and to embrace new circumstances and unexpected challenges. Teachers who have much to offer If you can teach a range of subjects or age groups, and have specialist skills, you’ll stand out from the crowd and be a real asset. Teachers who want to be fully involved in the life of the school International schools are more than just places of education. Many students and staff are expatriates and turn to the school as their ‘family’. It is the social hub and the source for extra-curricular activities; for the students, staff and their families. Schools are looking for teachers who are happy to get fully involved in school life and its community. Teachers who can lead extra-curricular activities Most after school activities for international school children happen through the school. This means that extra-curricular activities are an important aspect of international school life. Being able and willing to lead or support an extra-curricular activity is expected of international school teachers. It shows you have true commitment to the school, and more importantly to the children, outside of the classroom. Teachers who are loyal International schools are renowned for their short-term contracts, meaning that teachers can often move on to another school in another country after two years. However, international schools also value loyalty and often look for teachers who have commitment and staying power, who have extended their contracts in previous jobs and value the benefits that a more established teaching staff can bring. Teachers who can work with second or third language learners Many students at international schools speak English as a second or third language. This means adapting your teaching methods to help students fully engage in the learning. Teachers who have EASL or Mother Tongue training or good experience are valued. Teachers who want to develop professionally and are lifelong learners International schools offer great opportunities for both career and personal development and love teachers who show a desire to keep learning. Actively seeking professional development opportunities and sharing your learning and specialist experience with your colleagues is valued by schools, especially those that are isolated and where external training opportunities may be restricted. You don’t need all of these qualities to become a teacher at an international school, but having some of them will help, particularly enthusiasm and international mindedness, and don’t forget to work with TIC who will help you find the best job for you!
国际学校孩子入学可不是一件简单的是,Hen多孩子最开始都通过了笔试,但是在面试上败下Zhen来,很多明星子女想要入读国际学校据说都Yao走后门。国际学校面试究竟面试什么?又You哪些技巧呢?今天带大家轻松闯面试关。 An时报名 很多家长因为没有及时报名而错过Guo际学校的笔试和面试。建议家长先去各大国际Xue校官网看看、打个电话咨询一下,您也可以关Zhu专业国际学校网址,如中国国际教育网(http://www.ieduchina.com/)Huo拨打:400-900-8516进行电话咨询。Fu责任点儿的家长还可以去学校转一转、Zai找上三五个在校学生聊聊感受。深入国际学校Nei部去。 每个学校对于报名时间都有Zi己的规定,有些比较好的学校报名也十Fen火爆,千万不要觉得现在准备太早,据了解,很多Ma妈都是提前至少一年开始准备的。以今年9月的招Sheng为例:哈罗是去年年底就结束了报名;海淀外国语Shi今年1月初开始报名,而且是排队式,据说Dang天中午就报满了;乐成是2月底结束第一Pi报名;艾毅、青苗等是3月中旬结束第一批报Ming。 各学校的报名时间每年都可能根据Zhao生人数或其他安排有所调整,建议各位家长选好了Xue校后,最好在前一年的四季度就开始关注各Xue校官网陆续推出的次年秋季入学报名,以免错过Zui佳时间。 如果你是希望孩子明年8、9Yue入学的话,目前开始准备应该比较合适。即Bian是后年才入学的家长,现在多了解一些情况,Ti前去学校咨询一下也绝对是有帮助的。 Ren真填表 目前大多数国际/双语Xue校都采取网上报名的方式。有些要求比Jiao简单,中文填写基本资料即可,有些则十分复杂,Xu要全英文填写,要求提供的资料也比 Jiao多,其中要求较高的学校除了孩子和家庭的Xiang关资料外,还需要提供孩子之前学校的推荐信Deng材料。建议家长不要怕麻烦,认真填写报名表Ge。 如果你以为学校对网上填写的资料只Hui看个大概齐,就直接按照报名顺序通知面试,那Ke就大错特错了。这样的学校大多不太靠谱!想Jin入竞争激烈的好学校,至少面临着10+:1的Ru学比例。学校会通过你填写的每一项内容和所提Gong附件判断孩子和家庭是否合适,很有可Neng在填写资料阶段筛选掉高达50%的候选人。 Zuo好自荐 这是一个让学校的招生人员对你De孩子和家庭加深印象和了解的绝佳方式,也是很多Jia长没有做或不知道该怎么做的。做好这一步,Jiu很有可能令孩子和家庭从数以千计的候Xuan人中脱颖而出,https://zuciwang.com/zhuanti/永远忘不了的一句话600.html从而令学校将你的面试安Pai提前或放入优先考虑名单中。 关注通知 You些学校是一轮面试,有些是两到三轮面试。面Shi的形式如果不确定,其实是可以在电话里和Zhao生部的人询问沟通的,比如面试分为几轮、是否需Yao全英文面试、需要做些什么准备等等。 Zhe些也并不是什么机密,很多学校招生部的人还是很NiceDe,至少目前我碰到过的还都非常不错。如果Zhen的碰到招生部俯视看人的那种,各位家长Ye要对这所学校是否适合多加考虑了。毕竟Yi所学校的文化会影响到在其中的每一个人,Zhe些观察学校的时机和细节都是我们不容错过的。 Chong分准备 由于涉及入学阶段不同,需Yao准备的面试内容也不同。对于比较小的孩子来Shuo,其实更多的是通过各种形式看孩子的行Wei和状态,以及家庭呈现出来的整体情况。对于Nian龄大一些的孩子来说,可能还涉及SAT考Shi、现场问答互动等这些 环节。 A.Yu言方面。学习用英文打招呼,掌握了很Duo颜色、水果、动物、图形等常用英文单词和一些常Yong短语,并能用英文回答问题,包括: 1.What's your name? 2.How old are you? 3.What colour is it? 4.What's your favourite fruit? 5.What‘s this? 6.Which is bigger/smaller? 7.Can you draw a circle/triangle? 8.Do you like it? …… B.Xing为方面。其实孩子的行为规范主要依赖于家庭环Jing的熏陶和日常培养,临时抱佛脚肯定是不行De,这也是体现家庭整体素质的重要方面。Zhe一点我和Kerdi爸爸在平时对孩子De教育中还是非常注重的,比如文明礼貌、日Chang礼仪、生活习惯等,Kerdi都做的比较好。Yin此这方面我毫不担心,也没有再格外强化。 C.Qing绪方面。无论是大孩子还是小孩子,甚至是Wo们成人,面对陌生人时都难免会有紧张情绪。因Ci,家长要尽量帮助孩子在面试现场可以Zheng常发挥, 面试礼仪 终于到最Hou一步了,细节决定成败。面试当天的礼Yi无论是服装、谈吐还是各个细节,孩子和家长Du需要多加注意。 过于隆重。国Ji学校的老师很多穿的也挺休闲,如果你穿的过于Long重,易给 别人造成压迫感,产生不好De影响。 过于随意。穿着https://zuciwang.com/zhuanti/永远炙热什么意思.html可以休闲,但不Neng随意,夹脚拖鞋之类的还是算了吧。 Guo于花俏。太花俏了容易令人眼花缭乱,分散Zhu意力。而且,毕竟一个人的审美也是和素Zhi环境挂钩的。 过于暴露。这点Jiu不用我说原因了,你懂的。 过于Zhan示。可以穿名牌,但满身大LOGO那种就Suan了,服装只是点缀。 综上所诉,服Zhuang方面给你的建议是:简洁舒适,礼仪谈吐方面给你De建议是:落落大方,做到这两点就够了。 Ru果您和孩子把上面这些工作都做到位了,Ke以说面试的成功率已经很高了。面试时候到Di问了什么,并没有那么的重要,一切准备工作Zuo到位了,必然可以从容面对。
