Two days ago I received an email from my Teach Away representative. I have my interview date. So wait #1 is over. Wait #2: It can be up to 6 weeks before I know if I have the job or not but at least the interview is coming up with ADEC. I’m anxious to get that part over.
I will try to be as helpful and clear as possible as to what the expectations are. What I mean is, I read many blogs but they never really answer all of my questions. I will keep the questions in mind that I had and have and try to answer as many as possible so my readers will be as knowledgable as I wish I was. You can find my answers to many questions under blog “things you may have wandered”.
Here are a list of things I had to gather for the interview:
4 passport style photos- color, head & shoulder, white background, does not have to be the same as your actual passport
Intro statement- teach away will email this to you in an attachment. You will need to print it, complete it, sign it and ensure the info matches your passport
3 color copies of your actual passport picture. copy your passport with a color printer.
Resume- 1copy including teaching experience, and dates.
1 reference letter from a principal or supervisor.
records of employment verifying your teaching experience- must be on letterhead from the school.
Health form- this will be emailed to you. Print it and complete it.
If you will be traveling with children you will need additional things like… Passports for each of them, birth certificates, signed consent from the other parent.
Oh and Authentication that’s complicated and expensive. Alot of your forms need this. You will need to send or take them to the state capital, then Wash D.C, then Embassy to prove they are true. I have not completed this yet but expect to spend about 500.00 (non refundable) on this.
So the waiting continues…
