Dress Code

Postby Green Machine » Sun Aug 27, 2017 4:54 am

Hi Everyone,

I'll be arriving in PP this week and I'm trying to condense my worldly possessions into 30kg for the flight.

Although I'm hoping to work exclusively online, I may need to find legitimate teaching work. I have previously worked for a couple of years in Thai High School, where the dress code was quite strict. Therefore, I'm wondering how formal the teaching attire is in a state school in LOW. I don't want to pack a load of shirts and formal trousers unless they're absolutely necessary.

Also, in Thailand, there were quite a lot of cram schools. They were far more informal and gave opportunities to teach small groups of students for 3 or 4 hours each evening. Do places like that exist in Cambodia? Is it easy to find employment? (FYI - I'm a 50 year old Brit with a couple of years classroom experience, a bachelors degree and TEFL qualified.)

What's LOW? If you're talking about state schools here they don't employ foreigners.
