UJ- Thanks for the advice...I am feeling doubtful about the whole situation, so guess I'll be looking elsewhere for a job. Thanks a bunch, you are the only one I have gotten some real answers from- I appreciate it!!! Skye

I hold a Masters Degree in Linguistics/TESL and have been teaching at the college level for twenty years (though not always ESL). I'm planning a sabbatical, and am looking for an opportunity to teach in Europe for one year only, perhaps at a language institute for adults. My wife and children will be accompanying me.

How likely is it that I could find a suitable situation in the UK?


Many thanks,
Michael Akard

Akardm

There is now a points based system, if you are not a citizen of the European Union and want to work in the UK.

This is explained here:

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/workingintheuk/

For teachers (Tier 2)

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/workingintheuk/tier2/

Calculating points for Tier 2

http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/en/howtoapply/infs/inf26pbsskilledworker#22878556

EXAMPLE

Attributes --------------------------------------- Your points
Qualifications (Master's)-------------------------------15
Earnings (Min 20,000)-------------------------------10
Sponsorship (Employer)-------------------------------25
Total (50 points required)------------------------------50

Hello Akardm

Under Tier 2, you need a sponsor and 50 points but

under Tier 1, you don't need a sponsor. However, you do need 100 points to get into the UK.

Here's how:

Attributes ..................................................... Your points
Age (over 40) ............................................................. 0
Qualification . (Master's)...........................................35
Previous earnings (over 75,000) .........................45
Total (80 points required) -----------------------------80

English language---------------------------- Your points
English Skills----------------------------------------------10
Total (10 points required)------------------------------10

Maintenance-------------------------------------Your points
2,800 -------------------------------------------------------10
Total (10 points required)------------------------------10

Grand Total ...............................................................100

Calculate your own points here:
