Generally, the school that hires you will also sponsor your spouse/partner and your family. However, the school is not responsible for obtaining a work permit for your spouse/partner. There are some schools that are unable to consider candidates with non-teaching spouses due to visa restrictions.
Some international schools may be reluctant to hire educators with dependents left behind, as they are concerned about the candidate’s commitment to the contract.
A Partner Statement is required if you have a non-teaching spouse/dependent. In this statement, your spouse can share his/her background, explain what he/she will do with his/her time while you are employed by the school, or address why he/she will not accompany you.
