Hi,

Could anyone give us any infomation on collages as we hope to move to Cyprus next year.

Our daughter will be 16 and wants to study to become a primary school teacher.

Thanks

I presume your daughter eventually wants to become a primary school teacher in the UK? If so, you would have to pay to send her to an English-medium school to complete her AS/A levels in Cyprus and then send her to a teacher training college in the UK to do her B.Ed.

If you are thinking of her becoming a primary school teacher in Cyprus, then, unless she could gain command of Greek in an impossibly quick time, I'm afraid there is no chance. She would have to complete her 'apoloterion' (school leaving certificate) in the medium of Greek and gain a sufficiently high mark (out of 20) to get a place at a university or college in Cyprus or Greece. Unless she already has a Greek background, I would think this most unlikely.

If she gained a B.Ed. in the UK, then there is a possibility she could work in a private, English-medium primary school in Cyprus in the future, but such opportunities are not common, especially for someone newly qualified with little experience.

She will need to get her name on the waiting list - it's basically 'dead mens' shoes' so could easily be several years before she finds a post. I know someone who has been waiting at least 5 years.

If you are referring to the Cypriot government schools, then there is an official waiting list for all newly qualified teachers; anything up to 15 years depending on subject specialism. Some of those waiting for a government school post work in the private sector in the meantime. Others work in other fields until, out of the blue, there comes a government letter one day...

For the private (English-medium) schools, there are occasional opportunities, with some schools even advertising posts in the TES. For example, I know of a couple who were both offered posts in a Nicosia junior school last year; they eventually decided against accepting because of the dramatic drop in salary they would have suffered.

Hi,
Thanks for all the information I am sure it will come in useful, our daughter may consider another profession as teaching seems very difficult to get into in Cyprus. She wants to do all her studying in Cyprus and doesn't want to return back to England.

Thanks again
