Teaching Work Overseas

Teaching abroad is a great way to create a rewarding gap year experience for you and the local people of whatever country you’re planning to visit. Teaching abroad can have a direct, positive influence on the lives of children from under-privileged backgrounds and can help create a new generation of international business people.

To teach English as a foreign language you will need a TEFL qualification. Most reputable schools and colleges will not hire you without it and it can be easily obtained either online or in a classroom. The time it takes to complete a TEFL course depends on the position which you’re going to be looking for (For example a higher level teaching role will require more training and therefore will take you longer to complete). A TEFL course explains how to best conduct yourself in the classroom and refines your teaching skills. Once you are TEFL certified you are ready to teach in any country around the world to students who wish to improve their English language skills.

Teaching work abroad is relatively easy to obtain with the right qualifications. If you’re interested in teaching abroad on your gap year but feel you need to research a little more about it, then check out our great teaching advice articles.
