What's the best way to apply for TEFL jobs?

 

TEFL related jobs are available in cities, towns and beach resorts in dozens of countries spread right across the world, but what is the best way to secure the right position for you? Unfortunately there is no simple answer as it varies from one region to the next. Here we look at the main job hunting strategies that you can use to find and land that dream job teaching English abroad. Online Job Application If you are looking for a job outside the country you are currently in, then using online searches is a common option. There are many jobs boards online that post available positions from countries worldwide. The majority of these jobs will be in regions where the demand for teachers is so high that employers are happy to hire teachers without the need for a face-to-face interview. These are most likely to be found in Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Once you have found a job or several jobs that interest you simply fill in the application form online or send in your CV/resume and wait for a response. If successful the next step will probably be an interview via Skype or even telephone. The great benefit of this method is the security you get by having a job already in place before you leave your home country. On the downside there is always a risk in accepting a position without actually seeing where you will be working or meeting your fellow staff members. The best advice here is to ensure that the contract is very clear on important issues such as salary, working hours, contract length and issues involving early termination of your employment. In the worst case scenario that the job is not all you hoped it would be, you will at least be in a good position to look for new employment from within the country.


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This being my second time taking this course, I understand now to pay attention to the Tense system as this was what tripped me up during the final Unit for Lesson planning. I have noticed the importance of the grammar points of Form and usages. Usages is how and under what circumstances the tense or grammar point is used. I have made sure to make a note of \"Usages\".Unit 8 covers future tenses. There are 7 common future tenses: future simple, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuous, be going + infinitive, present simple, and present continuous. It was very good to be able to learn about the differences between the \"be going + infinitive\" tense and the present continuous tense and how to teach the difference.
