Hi everyone! I'm a qualified TEFL teacher, and unfortunately I have a criminal conviction for drink driving (UK). Stupidest thing I've ever done in my life, was young and idiotic, but I learned my lesson and will keep my nose clean for the rest of my life!
Thing is after I finish university in summer 2014 I plan to travel and teach, but the visa situation could be a bit sticky because of this conviction!
However, by that time in the UK my conviction will be 'spent' and will not be shown on a basic CRB check.
So if anyone has any experience of this will this conviction hinder me travelling to places requiring background checks as it won't show up. If I need to hold my hands up and admit I was a naughty girl in my youth if they ask "have you ever been arrested" then so be it!
