Any suggestions for short term internships

Unread post by Lound1944 »

I'm a recently qualified TEFL teacher, since finishing my combined course I've been searching for a short term internship, between 4-6 weeks (possibly a little longer), to build on my confidence and knowledge as I'm no where near comfortable enough to jump in at the deep end and take classes, I've seen endless advertisements for 4-12 month internships but nothing on a short term basis. There was one company but they only accept CELTA and TESOL candidates, which to me makes no sense. Does anyone have any suggestions for short term internships?

The only TEFL internships that I'm aware of are run by TEFL Course providers who see it as a way to lure trainees into buying their courses.

It would be good if TEFL course providers can have its own high quality evening language schools that also provide internships to trainee teachers or for teachers who wish to return to TEFL after a long break.

If you are living in Asia or planning on travelling to Asia, perhaps you can try Destination TEFL Siem Reap - which offers a TEFL Extension program. I am not sure how good it is or rather how professional it is because I have not participated in it yet. I am only planning on joining this program in Aug 2024.

TEFL training providers should open respectable eveninggeometry dash language schools where trainee teachers and instructors returning from a break can complete internships.

Please note - further to my post as above, I have now cancelled my plans with the said organisation in Asia. I am considering another TEFL organisation which may be able to assist me to further my interest in teaching English in Asia.
