Celta but no degree

Unread postby Richiewales » 10 Jun 2009, 11:12

Hello. I am considering doing a celta course in kiev. I am currently doing an online TEFL course, just to brush up my English I'm just wondering if it is worth my while/money to do a 4 week celta course. I know it will greatly improve my chances of getting a job but I have no degree. Does this matter?? I mean if I go for a job with a CELTA behind me but no degree how will the school look at this??

Many thanks for your time

Hi! If you look through this forum, you'll find some views on this topic. I don't know enough but I found something here (then couldn't find it again!)

I have a degree and taught in Greece. Without a degree, I couldn't have got a job - I don't have a TEFL qualification. I mention Greece because of my own experience but it varies from country to country. I hear that in the East, you may not get a visa without a degree if you're going for a teaching post.

Don't despair - decide on your destination and then research the country's requirements - and again, look through this forum!!

Good Luck! Eltheza
