Filipino Teachers Leaving for Overseas

My graduate school classmates had recently graduated from our program and with their new academic upgrade, the opportunity can only become wider and more.

An overseas employment agency had recruited Filipino teachers for IT teaching in Ethiopia  and in spite of the distance, a great number of Filipino teachers could only welcome the opportunity when compensation and other employment packages are to be considered.

With the dismal employment condition of Filipino teachers in the country, it is not surprising that they leave their families and nation for better pay and opportunities.

According to Public Services Labor Independent Confederation (PSLINK) in 2009, Filipino teachers head for the United States, which would need two million teachers in the coming decade, and Arab countries, which would need at least 450,000 teachers.

Other top destinations for Filipino teachers include Qatar and Japan.
