2017 UNI Overseas Placement Service for Educators:
686 registered candidates, 5 interviews per candidate on average.
141 international schools registered, representing more than 70 countries.
Over 1,000+ vacancies were posted in the UNI database system from more than 27 different teaching/administrative areas. Typically, there are more overall vacancies posted in the UNI system than there are educators to fill them.
Candidates who are single with no dependents or part of a certified married teaching team are most successful. Typically, over 95% of the successful candidates at UNI are in one of these categories. Candidates with dependents or non-teaching spouses should speak with the UNI staff before ordering registration materials.
Due to visa restrictions, many schools cannot hire teachers over 60 years of age. Teachers of this age should also contact the UNI office before ordering registration materials.
Many schools prefer to hire teachers with at least two years of relevant teaching experience. However, many international schools will hire new college graduates with the right qualifications. New teachers who are very FLEXIBLE about geographic location, have a strong academic background, and are committed to strong principles of teaching and learning are encouraged to register with our service. Over 63% of the new teachers participating in last year's UNI Overseas Placement Service secured employment. New teachers are encouraged to contact the UNI Staff before ordering registration materials.
