A TEFL without the 16 hours classroom experience isn’t really worth anything anyway.

You could always roll it up and use it as a pretend telescope.

i did a basic online TEFL

I then worked on my TEFL experience…............. Taught/Voluntarily taught English in a school in main land Europe…

Later…taught English running a summer camp in main land Europe..even featured in the papers wink

Eventually, I hope to governess / Teach English as a nanny/governess in Russia for a while… one way to avoid a 25 yr mortgage!

A TEFL certificate is mainly for teaching abroad. Schools can have different requirements and preferences.

It does not replace a degree though which you need to legally teach abroad most of the time.

I don’t know what kind of jobs you are looking at, but the schools that require teaching licenses are often international schools, some public schools (like in Taiwan).
