A fresh cohort of students training to become TEFL teachers has just begun their training at London language college St George International.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
This may be a good time to consider training as a TEFL teacher: with unemployment and living costs in the UK continuing to rise, there are many good reasons to have a career with international employment opportunities attached. While it is now too late to join October courses at St George International, further courses are run throughout the year.
Training to be a TEFL teacher opens up many doors. Qualified TEFL teachers are able to work all over the world, and in the UK. Their job is one of the most flexible and interesting going. TEFL teachers can work with either children or adults; in schools, colleges, workplaces and community settings; and are able to live and work alongside people from all over the world. The only requirements to undertake initial training are to be a native English speaker and to hold a BA or BSc degree.
St George International offers several different courses designed to meet the needs of different groups if TEFL teachers and potential teachers. Their courses are accredited by Trinity College. For those just starting out, with little or no experience, the TEFL Certificate course is the one to take. This provides a thorough grounding in TEFL teaching and enables its graduates to teach anywhere in the world. Those with two or more years experience should take the TEFL Diploma course. This is designed to help experienced teachers enhance their skills and progress to senior positions. They also offer a short (two week) refresher courses for established teachers in schools who need to brush up on their TEFL teaching skills; and a distance learning course for those who want to train as teachers of business English.
