* Experienced teachers are being lured to far-flung parts of the globe in a bid to escape bad behaviour and find a better work-life balance, claims an international teacher supply agency.
Some of the most popular destinations over the past few months have been Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Korea, according to Andrew Wigfield, founder of Teachers International Consultancy, based in Penarth.
Husband and wife Susanna and Paul Joseph, from Pontypridd, south Wales, left teaching jobs in the valleys to experiment with a new life at the Al Khor International School in Qatar.
Paul said: "I wish we'd done this earlier. We have the sort of lifestyle that we could only dream about in Wales. We have both decided to stay."
