Ahmed Rawahi an Omani citizen and David Woolls a British citizen have known each other for more than a decade through the banking and finance industry.
David has worked with teachers for many years looking after their offshore investments. Whilst meeting teachers all over the world and listening to the problems teachers have with job fairs, school politics, the packages offered etc felt the need to put together a web site which would be exclusive to expatriate teachers and potential expatriate teachers all over the world.
To provide a platform where information sharing will give inside information of where to apply for a position, in which school, in which Country, with the best employment packages available.
To provide a service whereby expatriate teachers can share their experiences good and bad whilst helping other potential expatriate teachers in choosing where to apply for a position and where to avoid.
