The training and preparation you will experience while attending an ITTT course will see you becoming a desired teacher wherever you choose to teach.

After Teaching English Overseas

Figures illustrate that trained EFL/ESOL teachers tend to work abroad for one to three years. Following this, 80% return to their homeland to find a position.

Many prospective employers view positively those who have taught English overseas for more than a year. The experience and the skills you have learnt will be invaluable to you when you return home. While teaching English abroad you will have shown initiative and motivation, gained an understanding of working in a professional environment, experienced a different culture to your own and maybe learnt to converse in a new language. All these skills will certainly impress any prospective employer. The teaching profession is valued worldwide and many of our former graduates progress to study further in education by gaining the full teaching qualifications required for working in schools in their home country. They go on to teach English in state schools, community colleges or in language schools.

Around 20% of our TEFL/TESOL graduates progress to study and achieve additional qualifications for teaching English as a foreign language. Choices available include MA TEFL, MA TESOL and Dip TEFL. The Dip TEFL course involves further practical instruction, including observed teaching exercises, whereas the MA TEFL and MA TESOL focus more on theory. Should you wish to study one of these courses you will find further English teaching positions become available to you including Teacher Trainer, Materials Producer, Director of Studies, Language Centre Manager, Curriculum Designer and Assistant Director of Studies.

Universities worldwide offer great job opportunities for MA qualified teachers. Many businesses in rich oil producing countries also offer attractive salaries for teachers with an MA qualification. Whatever further qualifications you decide to study, you will find that teaching English abroad develops your professional and individual skills and can positively affect your employment prospects in the future.

TEFL/TESOL Job Opportunities Outlined For Each Continent

Asia

Asia provides an amazing variety of experiences and prospects for all trained TEFL/TESOL teachers. There is a huge requirement for qualified native English language teachers in many Asian countries. The salary you can expect for teaching English in Asia is rated as one the highest in the world as Asia is a strong marketplace for teachers.

The qualifications required for teaching jobs in each individual country does vary considerably. In addition to a university or college degree, a 4-week teaching instruction certificate is required by most developed countries including Taiwan, Korea and Japan.

Although countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and China usually offer a lower salary than some of the more developed countries, they often make up for this with the culture and lifestyle they offer.

Latin America

Central America and South America provide a huge diversity of teaching positions. The combination of the Latin appeal and the variety of culture creates an appealing destination for teachers. Generally, owing to the low living costs, salaries in this region are favourable. The majority of schools in this area do not have the funds to internationally publicise available positions so the majority of employing is done from within the countries themselves.

North America

Demand is high for English teachers in the USA. Unlike many countries, where it is common to teach at language schools and in business settings, in North America the emphasis is on Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). ESL courses are run at practically all colleges and universities throughout the main cities of North America, as well as at a range of charitable and governmental organisations.

Eastern Europe

In many areas of Central and Eastern Europe the change in the market economy has produced an increase in demand for teachers of the English language, mainly in the area of business. In nearly all Eastern European countries English teaching positions are available to both EU and non-EU citizens.

To see which countries have job opportunities available, please see the Teaching English Abroad section on our website.

Western Europe

Many teachers who are wary of culture changes choose Europe for their teaching positions as it provides attractive pay and good working conditions. However, when teaching in Europe, working conditions and salaries can vary greatly between countries. Being an EU state citizen will indeed make it easier for you to find a teaching post, however, it is not always an issue if you are not an EU citizen. For many years now, thousands of non-EU citizens have been enjoying teaching positions all over Europe.
