      Good thread, KW.

      I'm about to leave right now to go meet with some people that are building a new school in North Jakarta (or maybe West Jakarta). It sounds like they're looking to staff up for the 2011-2012 school year 'cause I think the school is set to open in August. I don't know much yet (my old principal left to go help start up this school, she's the one who asked me to come in today) but if it's promising, I'll post the details here.

      NB: Monday is one of my days off, so I'm not skipping work to go talk to a potential new employer! I'm a good employee, I swear!

              Good thread KW. I knew about the Medan one and think I'll look into the one in Yogja too. Isn't that quite a small international school or is it getting bigger does anyone know?

                    Bandung is quite a decent sized and professional school.

                    The Yogja one is not in the same league, but that's not to say that it is not any good.

                        Does anyone know anything about Dyatmika School? I'd never heard of it until I saw it on TES.

                            I'd keep an eye on, they occasionally have openings for teachers posted.

                              The meeting I had today seemed promising. I don't know anything about their staffing needs or salary/compensation package yet. Since they're a brand new school, there are no former/current employees to ask about the working conditions or payment rates.

                              We submitted our compensation request with their formal application package (Rp. 20-25 juta per month, free un-shared housing, transport as necessary, multi-entry visa, all school holidays as paid vacation time, annual plane ticket reimbursement of $1,500, annual bonus of one month salary at Christmas, health care, fully-paid immigration/tax/etc...) and there were no raised eyebrows or sighs of disbelief, so I'm thinking that's probably right around what they're willing to pay their expat teachers. (Or perhaps they were willing to pay more and I just undercut myself!)

                              I still want to know more about their academic plans and school structure, so it'll be a while before I'm willing to give it the SamanthaB seal of approval. (Plus, they haven't even made a formal offer of employment.) If I find out that they're looking to hire more expatriate teachers, and I think they're a school that's going to be on the up-and-up, I'll be sure to post it here.
