If applying as a couple and both passed the screenings, would they be assigned to the same school?

Hi Dan,

It's very unlikely that two ALTs are in the same exact school under most cases, whether a couple or not. In most cases where couples apply, if both are successful independently in the application process, their requests are usually that they are placed in the same general area. This can mean that they are teaching in different education boards in adjoining towns, or in different schools in the same town. We would of course place a couple in a convenient location for both to live and work comfortably.
