LONDON, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A common dream that many people share is to travel and see the world, but fulfilling this dream can often be stressful. The introduction of Edvectus is a game changer for one group of people, teachers, as they now have a simpler way to find the right teaching job abroad, one that enables them to save money and travel while simultaneously boosting their professional skills.

Teachers working abroad often save 1/3 to 1/2 of their salaries due to school-provided benefits such as round trip airfare, free housing, and low tax rates. To find the right job, Edvectus candidates are interviewed and personally matched with the most suitable job, enabling them to see the world and experience a new culture in a much deeper fashion than a simple holiday trip. Edvectus has international offices staffed mainly by ex-teachers who are dedicated to find the optimal worldwide teaching opportunities both at international schools and in government programs, and teachers are never charged fees for these services. 

The Edvectus' Learning Portal helps teachers to understand what it is like to teach in a different country and offers valuable advice regarding the job seeking and relocation experience. The portal helps individuals achieve a fast and streamlined transition into international teaching and fully explores key international teaching benefits while unmasking misconceptions that can be costly personally and professionally.

The portal also offers 500 carefully selected articles, utilities, websites and documents chosen by the Edvectus team. Teachers can also access discounted services, get tips on Skype interviews and CV writing, learn about international curricula and tackle international teaching myths.

Managing Director Diane Jacoutot explained, "Teaching overseas is an excellent way to enhance your teaching skills. When you return home it shows prospective employers that you are flexible, capable, culturally-sensitive and confident."

Vance, a teacher placed in Oman commented, "Edvectus did the heavy lifting of finding the right match for my qualifications, my preferences, my personality, and my family's needs and goals."

Teachers are currently in high demand in many countries. For example, the number of international schools in the UAE has grown by 60% within 5 years, with no signs of slowing down. Most international schools require western-trained teachers who are certified to teach in their home countries.

Jacoutot noted, "These are schools of aspiration for expatriate and host country parents, and finding the right teachers for the right context is key. But it requires in-depth knowledge of the educational landscape on both sides."
