Hey everybody! I’m back! I’m in my new apartment, my internet is up, I’m back on twitter and blogging, and I have lots of exciting stuff to come!! For now, I’m going to take a break from my usual posting schedule (if you haven’t noticed, I’ve taken quite the break from blogging in general!) I’ll still be blogging, but randomly for a bit until I get back into a routine, then I’ll re-establish my posting schedule. But, for today, I’d like to share a guest post on opportunities for teachers once they complete their TEFL training.
Knowing the Employment Prospects after Completing a TEFL Course
A good number of people must be unaware of the term TEFL. If you also belong to this category of people, then you need not worry. I have a discussed some vital information further in this article that may be of great help to you. TEFL basically stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Sometimes it is also referred to as EFL. There are certain schools and colleges in the present day that carry out special English language courses for training TEFL teachers while there are some others that offer services for teaching foreign students in English language.
There is quite a scope for a person who is well trained in teaching English as a foreign language. A person who has completed a TEFL course or any similar kind of certification can find a number of available jobs. If you also have completed a similar course and are wondering about the job opportunities then the information below will be of great help to you. There are plentiful options available for you out there and you can find a suitable one matching your qualifications easily.
Pre-School teaching can be quite rewarding as you are working to improve the English skills of children in a professional manner. The children of this age can absorb new things easily, which makes it an ideal time for them learn. If you have a good amount of energy to deal with children and creativity to make learning English more interesting, then working as a pre-school teacher is an ideal working option for you after completing TEFL course.
Higher Education Teaching
If you are looking for something more advanced and challenging, then teaching the higher class students can be perfect for you. You may require a professional degree from an acclaimed university in order to start your career in this venture. If you have the matching requirements, then teaching groups in relatively large class setting, giving thesis guidance, or one on one English lecture and a number of others options can form a part of your career.
Language Learning Centers Teaching
Citizens of countries that do not have English as their mother tongue are stepping ahead and taking measures to whet their English skills. As a result, a great number of learning centers are being set up abroad. After completing TEFL course you can start giving lessons to businessmen and people of different age groups. This is one of the most challenging, rewarding and respected jobs in this profession.
So, these are some popular career opportunities available after completing TEFL studies.
