I'm interested in teaching TEFL over the summer. I have more than ten years of experience teaching in a primary school. I also hope to be qualified as a proofreader by the summer. Would TEFL schools in the UK consider my experience to be good enough to teach TEFL or would they require I hold a TEFL qualification from an organisation like CELTA? I have a friend who taught TEFL in the past, and feels I would find TEFL easy compared to school teaching (and less stressful!). He also feels I could potentially become a good TEFL teacher in a short space of time, considering my extensive classroom experience. Would TEFL schools agree and offer work without a specific qualification?
Thanks for any insight!
