Graduate Profiles

Name: Kevin Rabbitt

“I graduated from Trinity College with a bachelor’s of science degree in pharmacy and went on to get my master's degree in pharmacy from Royal College of Surgeons in 2011. I went to work as a community pharmacist for 3 years in Galway after completing my studies and then I had an inkling that I wanted to do something different while in my 20s. That’s when I was drawn to SABIS®.

I liked that I was able to move into a completely different field from my work experience with ease as there was intensive training provided for new teachers. The life experience that I have now from being able to teach young students is something that will stay with me forever. You get so much experience and responsibility right from the start, along with support, of course. I enjoyed the camaraderie with the new teachers that you travel with in your first year. Everyone is helpful and tries to guide you to the best of their abilities.

There is real opportunity for professional growth with SABIS®. I can see it in my own career and in careers of my colleagues and, now, friends. I have been able to move within the company to an HR administrative position after one year of teaching. My advice to new graduates thinking of teaching as a career is: 'Come and see what it's like firsthand. You won't regret it!'“

Name: Andrea Walsh

"After graduating with BA in Economics & Geography from NUI Galway in 2013, I took an Economics & Business studies teaching post with the international schools of Choueifat in Sharjah, UAE in 2014. As the secondary teaching qualification process had become more tedious and expensive in Ireland, I was delighted to have the opportunity to teach before fully investing in a career in education.

The school do their utmost when training inexperienced teachers. After an intensive fortnight in August, I was confident entering into my first class that September. The Heads of department are extremely hands-on and the teacher training continued throughout the duration of the year. There was always someone willing to offer helpful advice, and the school's rigorous points system leaves little room for teacher error.

During my second year with the school I decided to complete a Post-graduate certificate in Education through the University of Sunderland and the school was extremely accommodating to me throughout my studies. This course will allow me to teach in Ireland, when I eventually decide to return home.

This year I will be progressing into a management position as an academic quality controller. A position which a teacher in Ireland would unlikely be entrusted with, after only two short years of teaching. The opportunities for advancement are exceptional within the company.

I recommend working with SABIS to any graduate who is interested in gaining teaching experience whilst living in the Middle East.Myself and many of colleagues have taken the opportunity to travel during our lengthy paid holidays, with tourist destinations in Asia and Africa only being a short distance away. The company allowed me to gain relevant experience, complete my teaching qualification and to progress into a management role, whilst enjoying a comfortable and interesting lifestyle. "
