You will find the following user video guide on applying for Jobs helpful - remember, you can only apply to jobs once you have a 70% completed profile!
Applying for international school jobs via Teacherhorizons significantly improves your chances of securing that dream position for the following reasons:
Increased detail of information about you: the profile has been designed to give heads exactly the information they need in the order they want it. Compared to the traditional model – Teacherhorizons provides schools with all references, a 10 minute video interview, a photo, supporting documentation and a Teacherhorizons CV. This greatly reduces the risk to them by taking someone on with limited knowledge of the candidate.
Increased exposure: heads can get inundated with boring CVs – schools are much more likely to take note of you in this fresh and modern format.
Easily comparable: Teacherhorizons has been designed to ensure that the best candidates get the best jobs – Teacherhorizons CVs are easily comparable and allow heads to spot talent quickly.
Importance of values: The Teaching Philosophy Statement stresses the importance of values. Schools will want to know this and see if it fits in with their ethos and vision for the future.
Control over the application process: Teacherhorizons gives you control over the process by setting your security at the right level for you.
Saves time: by matching suitable schools and candidates, Teacherhorizons not only provides one application process for all schools but also makes you less likely to apply to schools that wouldn’t be interested in your profile.
