Need advice!

Unread postby Millie » 23 Jul 2006, 16:33

Hiya, I've just finished my A levels and am looking to take the TEFL course sometimes this year. I have loads of questions that I keep asking and I never seem to get decent answers. Can anyone help me?

1.I'm aware that the two most distingushed of courses are the TESOL and Cert, but are there particular schools (Like Oxbridge Uni for degrees)which are more recognised than others?

2.Also, how hard is to to get on the ladder of TEFL? I have been browsing jobs, and most require at least two years experience of teaching, which I obviously don't have. Is there anyway of getting around this, any tips or jobs to start off with?

Cheers for your help!

Take the course and then go knocking on doors! Only a small percentage of tefl jobs are advertised.
