I am a qualified Primary teacher (PGCE 1995) with over 10 years UK teaching experience and my husband and I are thinking about moving to the Otago area. My husband is a museum educatior with a Masters Degree.
I have just submitted my EOI (think that we have 150 points) and so I am now starting to think about finding jobs and would welcome comments to do with how other UK teachers have found the move from teaching in the UK to NZ. Advice on the current job market, where to source jobs etc would be most welcome. Is a teacher's standard of living roughly the same, higher or lower than in the UK?
