I'm interested in taking a TEFL course. However, I currently work a full-time job so would only be available during evenings and weekends. Realistically, how long should it take to become qualified given my limited availability?
I have tried ringing my local adult education centre for more information however, it seems that there is nobody there over the summer.
Also, I have read that a degree is required / substantially increases your chances of gaining a job. Is this simply to prove that you have been educated so a certain level or are employers looking for degrees in specific subjects? I do have a degree but I do not believe it is particularly relevant to teaching English.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
