Qualified TEFL certificate without experience.

Unread post by Estrauss42 » 12 May 2016, 17:33

A little over a year ago I completed an online 120 hour TEFL course with the intention of travelling abroad, my circumstances changed and sadly never done anything with it. I am now in a position to revisit the idea, but am lacking the confidence that my knowledge is up to scratch to meet the required performance needs. Are there any refresher courses out there ? Or am i better off paying the $500 and doing the course all over again?

Any suggestions whatsoever would be greatly appreciated.

Have you thought of volunteering? That might be a good place to start gaining experience.

I believe the best option in these cases is to find a program that guarantees you a job opportunity after taking the course. There are academies abroad that offer a student VISA, a place to stay and a job opportunity once you get the certification.

This school in Madrid offers this kind of program in case you want to check it out:

Good luck! :D :D :D
