"We have been told by our employer that our pay will be performance related as of the next academic year. He has not told us how our performance will be measured and I don't see how something so personal as teaching can be. "

NEW AND UNDER PREPARED
Q.
I am a recently qualified teacher about to take up my first post abroad and feel totally under prepared for the experience. HELP!

A.
It is not clear whether you feel under prepared for your forthcoming teaching duties or for the experience of living and working abroad. If it is the latter, it will help to do as much research on the place and people before you arrive - from the essentials like how to get money our of your bank and how to find somewhere to live to the less crucial but still helpful information on the local customs, language etc. If it's the teaching you are worried about, this is possibly just first night nerves, if your training course was worthwhile. It's helpful to get to know the other staff as soon as possible, chat to them about the students and their idiocyncracies, how they deal with them, what materials they use etc. People are usually glad to be of help and understand what it's like to be the new boy/girl.
