TEFL Jobs in Australia
The TESOL profession in Australia enjoys a constant influx of students from Asia wishing to take intensive English courses. Added to this, there are numerous governmental programs aimed at helping the indigenous Aboriginal community gain the English skills they need to integrate into a more modern society.
This being said, the TESOL profession in Australia is highly regulated and standards are high in both private and public sectors. The national pay scale for ESL teachers is AUD 18,000-30,000 per year.
British, Irish and Canadian citizens under 31 years of age might like the possibility of a working in Australia on a holiday visa. This is a 12-month, non-renewable visa that allows you to work in any one job for a maximum of three months. This could prove convenient for any teacher-traveler who would like short-term contracts while traveling around Australia.
