Is there a dress code?

  • Many schools have a dress code for teachers. The code itself will depend not only on your school but on the country. For the majority of schools, a dress code will mean casual but conservative dress. However, for some schools this might mean a suit and tie.
  • It is best to take your cue from other teachers working at your school. You may find the rules within the school a little more lax than in the dress code itself.
  • If you are volunteering then you are often encouraged to dress in a casual manner to ensure a comfortable classroom for the students.
