Teach Abroad: An OCENET program which gives educators teaching opportunities around the world


 Ross Laing, International Education Coordinator, promoting OCENET’s Teach Abroad program at the OISE Teacher Recruitment Fair

During the past few months Greg Duggan, Director of Studies of YPLS, and Ross Laing, International Education Coordinator, attended several teacher recruitment fairs at universities throughout Ontario, including the University of Ottawa and Queens’ University, among others. At these fairs, Greg and Ross met hundreds of educators who were keen to learn about OCENET’s Teach Abroad program.

The teacher recruitment fairs are attended by educational agencies which recruit educators to teach internationally.
Over the past year OCENET has developed Teach Abroad, which assists in placing Canadian educators in teaching and administrative positions overseas.

Since teaching positions are increasingly scarce in Ontario, the Teach Abroad program provides opportunities for recent B.Ed. graduates who want to gain teaching experience and explore life and culture in another country. The program also attracts retired teachers and others who have educational qualifications.

Currently there are several positions available in Vietnam, China, South Korea and The Netherlands. Information regarding teaching positions is updated regularly on the website, and can be found at the following link:
