Hi there, ive been doing so much research on TEFL/CELTA courses that my head feels like its going to explode!
Right, ill try and keep this short. Basically I was looking at doing an online TEFL course but the more I look into it the more I want to do the CELTA course as I would like to be able to teach english in english speaking countries in the future. This is going to be a career change for me, not just for a year or two. The only problem I have is that I dont have a great educational background but I do have a good employment background and have great life experience (travel etc). I'm also very good in all aspects of the english language. So, here are my questions...
1: Am I able to do the CELTA with a 'not so great' educational background? If so, any suggestions on courses etc?
2: If not, if I did a TEFL course to begin with and gained lots of teaching experience abroad (getting references etc along the way) would I be able to work up to doing the CELTA??
This is something I really want to do and I'm kicking myself now for not getting better qualifications in my younger years!! Im 34 years old. Please shed some light on this subject!
