the different types of teaching jobs for tefl and tesol certified teachers so basically the different types of schools

the opportunity to ask questions but yeah i always like to have a bit of a chat not only me talking i also like
to ask you guys questions and get some of your experience and feedback so that
would be great if we could do it like that all right then let's jump right in
uh the first type of school that you can work at as a teflor tesol certified
teacher and that is actually the most common type of school where most
teachers will be working at which is a private language school
a private language school and so typically private language schools they offer the most opportunities for efl teachers
globally there's a lot of private language schools everywhere and
teachers working at this type of school they also teach um students of all ages so
there can be private language schools specifically targeted for at children or at adults
it all really depends on the the private school it varies from school to school
also some countries will have um you know private language schools that are more targeted at children
etc so yeah and also uh teachers working
at private language schools you might be teaching anything from general english lessons to business english even or just
conversation lessons or even a test prep lessons for for example ielts or tefl
that is also very common requirements for a position at a private
language school obviously it varies from school to school so it is different also in different countries
but generally most of them want to see a tefl or a tesol certificate and
oftentimes a degree um oh it says often masters level no i
meant on bachelor's level you do not need a master's degree that is a typo in my slide here
i apologize a four year degree is typical but there are also private language
schools that do not even require a degree at all so it really depends on
the individual private school um some benefits and like information about vacation you will have um
typically less vacation days compared to like a public school which we're gonna talk about later
um but still um i think in korea when i was working at a private language school i had 10
days a year which was five days in the summer and five days in the winter that
is pretty typical but again it depends on the on the school and also on the country
um consider that in germany for example the minimum vacation
annual vacation is around 30 days so if you work in a private language
school in germany for example you will get 30 days because that's the the minimum
per law um so it really depends on where you're going but
public schools have more vacation typically than private language schools
but private language schools tend to have a higher salary compared to public schools
so you'll earn a little bit more than at a public school generally
and then i also put a little um competitiveness bar down here so as you can see the competitiveness is pretty
low because there are just so many private language schools everywhere um so pretty
much if you want to work in a private language school you can definitely find a job at one it is not very competitive
so that is the first one that we're covering and i have personal experience working at a private language school uh
maybe some of you do also if you have let me know
hey fauzon welcome good to see you how are you doing
yeah if you have experience working in a private language school i know that some of you might have experience because
this is just the most common school that efl teachers typically work at and you
can find private language schools in pretty much any city around the world
really so um if you're not sure how to find a job how to find a teaching job
your tefl t cell certified and now you're like now what how do i find a job check out my last week's live session
that's what i talked about last week how to find a job the different types of resources how to find a teaching job so
you find a lot of inspiration and resources and information there
all right good this is the first one then let's
move on to school type number two
which is a government-run school or a public school right so here typically at this type of school
english is taught as a separate subject in government schools
so many of you maybe are not from an english-speaking country so
i grew up in germany my mom is german my dad is american but i went to public school in germany
and there all the subjects are in german but we also learn english there and that is the
only subject that is taught in english so that's this case for example so english is taught as a separate subject
in government schools only one subject typically there are different schools you know that might offer
other subjects taught in english as well and here working if you're working for a
public school if government runs school you will be mostly responsible for
teaching speaking and listening skills but some um also are responsible for
more like reading or also grammar of course it again depends on the public
school but a lot of times it is more speaking and listening this is especially the case if you're
working for for example the jet program in japan or the epic program in korea which are
both government-run programs that place foreign teachers into public schools
there and so at those positions typically um there will be
native like korean or japanese english teachers at the school who teach
english in their language and explain the grammar and stuff in korean or japanese to the students and then you
would come in as a native speaker and take care of the speaking
part the conversation part listening part um so you're usually working with another
teacher from that country like together and yeah but like i said some schools
they also run programs where english is used to teach other subjects like math
or history it really depends on the school and i think it's also
something that we've seen because english is just getting more and more important
so more public schools are kind of changing and offering more stuff in english as well
um the requirements are typically a tefl certificate and a four-year university
degree again this depends from country to country and school school but this is what we see as the
standard pretty much around the world in terms of benefits and vacation you'll
see that at public schools you'll have you tend to have longer vacations
compared to a pub private school um because uh yeah school vacations
typically are longer um you know some have like in germany we have six weeks summer vacations that
would also be something that the teacher would get obviously so they are much longer than private language institutes
however if you're working at a public school you might only be the only foreign teacher
there um something to consider and you also have fewer teaching hours compared to
private language schools typically competitiveness i'm still not so bad
um compared to private language institutes a little bit more competitive just because some countries don't have
the funds or the financial support from the government to hire
foreign teachers into every public school so only a handful
of public schools would be able to hire foreign teachers so that's why it is a little bit more competitive but also not
too bad so as long as you have a tefl certificate and um for your university
degree in most cases you are good all right i have a question here from fauzon i'm going to look at
he says linda where i come from we have three phases at university licensed three years plus masters two
years then doctoral formation starting from three years plus so my question is
how are they called there so i guess the license three years oh it's a little bit
different okay so typically a four-year degree is a bachelor's degree
so i guess that would be kind of what your license is um
then there's also associates associates which is two years so the associate's
degree is two years and then the bachelor's degree is four years and i think masters is also two years
there might be some masters that are three years i'm not sure um depends and then yeah doctoral the
phd level depends i think what kind of doctorate you're getting
but typically uh yeah university degree is a bachelor's degree a four-year
degree typically
all right good so we covered private language schools
and we covered government-run schools okay sure i'm going to write it down so
bachelor's that's the only one that's different bachelor's degree four years i'm just going to write it in
the comments for you
here a bachelor's degree this seems to be uh
what your license is and then the other one was the associate's degree which is two years
all of them but the other ones are the same the masters is the same the phd is
the same so only those two are different
this one and this one
okay all right good so this was the
government-run school the public school let's have a look at our third
type of school where efl teachers can work at which is a private school so now
you're going to know you're going to say like we just covered that so the first one we covered was a private language
school or a private language institute then we had the public school the
government-run schools and now private schools which is basically
um the same as the public school but not government run
but from a company run by a company so they would typically also like a
private elementary school a private middle school a private high school that's what that means
so they generally have the same curriculum as the government schools because they need to be on the same
level however the difference is that typically they have like a fully fully bilingual
subject in english and the students native language so there's more english
involved typically in these private schools not always but typically and some even have all instruction in
english except for native language lessons so um
there's also for example a private elementary school here in my city where i live in in korea
and i used to work at a english-speaking kindergarten and so kindergarten was in the morning and then in the afternoon we
got um we got elementary classes and most of those kids coming to
our english private school were actually kids from this private elementary school that was
also pretty much bilingual in english that's why that's a little bit sort of the
difference requirements for that again is a tefl certificate and a four-year bachelor's
degree pretty much um [Music] and so
it depends though from school to school i always have to say that you know every school has their own requirements for
their teachers it's not always the same but these are typically uh the requirements that we see
we deal with a lot of different job offers every day so that's typically
what we see in there um benefits and vacations also typically longer vacations per year because they
also tend to have the same amount of vacation like a public school
which is usually a lot there however because they have more english
instruction more english subjects you will have more teaching hours typically but also higher salaries compared to
public school because usually public schools are free right and private schools cost money
so um you also tend to get a higher salary working at a private school
for example competitiveness is a little bit higher because there are not that many
um private schools there are many of course but compared to public schools or private language schools there aren't as
many private elementary schools private middle schools etc so that's why the competitiveness is a little bit higher
here all right other question here from fauzon he says i completed license
master and i have six years in doctoral formation i wish i completed soon wow
you have a lot of um training you a lot of education
that's great so you're definitely qualified so don't worry i wish you good luck with that
what what's your major is it english very cool nice
all right good so we covered three types of schools we still have
many to cover so um let's jump in as a reminder we had private language
schools government run public schools private schools now and now let's look at
kindergartens kindergartens and i worked at a english-speaking kindergarten so that is
actually very common as well to work at a kindergarten parents around the world they really
want to expose their children to foreign languages as early as possible especially in places like asia
so um you'll see that there's a high demand for english teachers in kindergartens around the world there are
many many kindergartens english-speaking kindergartens or kindergartens that have
english that offer english education so that's why this is very very common
requirements are kind of the same you'll need a teflor tesol certificate and typically a bachelor's degree a
four-year university degree but some also hire people who have no degree so it's not always required
you'll have fewer vacations here because kindergartens tend to not have
public long vacations so you will have less compared to a public school or private
elementary middle high school and there will be more play time involved
usually so the curriculums at kindergartens usually are more
play like game based play based so there's a lot of play time involved a
lot of like arts and crafts that you do with the kids and games so it's a different kind of teaching
compared to you know you're in a classroom and you're teaching grammar it's a different kind of teaching which
is also very fun but it's not for everyone so it's you need to consider that um
however you also get higher salaries typically here than a public school
so but there's also a little bit more work involved and you know the younger
the students the more like additional tasks you have to do typically it's not
only teaching them english but you also need to teach them other things like
manners and how to be good humans basically so
there's a lot of that and yeah competitiveness i forgot to
mention also very low uh because there are so many kindergartens it's a huge demand so if
you like working with young children and you're not the kind of teacher who just wants to use a textbook all the
time and teach grammar patterns then maybe teaching at a kindergarten would be a great
um thing for you all right so we have falzon asking if i
complete my phd would you hook me up with a teaching job there where in korea
or where do you want to teach sure as an itt course graduate you have
access to lifetime job support so we will help you to find a job wherever you
want that is part of our deal when you get a course with us hey jay jay is asking is the praxis e
s o l esau certificate equivalent to a t cell certificate do you mean the in
class in class versus online certificate so yeah typically nowadays um the
in-class certificate and the online certificate are accepted just the same they're the same
level especially now after even the pandemic everything is online so
employers really don't make a difference anymore there are some that do prefer in
class but it's rare pretty much nowadays everyone has an online certificate
and the good thing about the certificate is that it doesn't say online tefl or online tesol on the
certificate so it just says the hours for example 120 hour tefl certificate it
doesn't say that it comes from an online course so yeah
okay so that was the kindergartens again very common lots of demand low competitiveness and
it's just a fun work environment as well working with younger children
let's have a look at the next one
yep universities so you'll also see a couple of um job offers
looking for tefl tesol certified instructors teachers for universities
many university students they are actually required to study english as part of their degree
and certain courses are often offered entirely in english targeted at international students and
also foreign language majors also here in the city where i live in we
have an international university which also hires foreign teachers so i know
some people who are working there as english teachers um and typically the requirements that
we see for those kinds of positions are a little bit higher than the other schools so still you will need a tefl or
a tesol certificate and then a degree often a master's degree not always um
but certainly it's preferred having a master's degree and then also preferred if it's in
english so it can be in english in english literature uh t sol tefl anything that is
definitely bonus but it's not um a hundred percent required again it
depends on the individual university what kind of person they want to hire and their requirements
and also we see that usually university universities want or expect several
years of teaching experience prior so um this is something that you could go for
after you've already taught a couple of years and then you're like okay i'm looking for that next step
i want to work for university now and then you could you're qualified to do so
benefits and vacations as you might imagine you'll have long vacations every year semester breaks are pretty long
typically and you'll have um lot of vacation
you'll also typically have few teaching hours from the university teachers that i know they really don't have a lot of
teaching hours per week it's pretty chill and the salaries obviously are higher
compared to public or private schools so you'll earn more have not that much work and a lot of
vacation so as you can imagine these jobs are very competitive that's why the
competitive meter down here is pretty high um
also because it those kinds of positions are not as common you cannot find them
as much online you can find them but compared to private language schools they are not um that abundant
and if they are the competitiveness is quite high so make sure you do have a couple of years
experience you do have a master's in tesol that would be
a huge plus for getting a university job also i know that in korea for example um
it varies also the location so if you're targeting like targeting a smaller city
with the university your chances are higher with um you know fewer re cri
requirements than if you want to go to like a university in seoul obviously so
uh also keep that in mind okay yeah so that was universities
um [Music] yeah let me move on to the next one as always if you have any questions
throughout this live if you didn't understand anything if you want me to repeat something feel free to just add a comment i would
appreciate that good next up we have international schools so
the curriculum at international schools is fully in english most of the time
and some international schools they also have a specific efl english as a foreign
language department where students are sort of brought up to speak before they enter mainstream
classes so if somebody a student wants to join wants to attend this international
school but their english level isn't up to par yet they would then go to this
efl department maybe for six months or a year and get special teflor tesol training to
be brought up to the same level as the other students so that he then or they can then join mainstream classes
afterwards so there's opportunities in both departments you could work in the regular
uh department different subjects like a regular school typically um you would
see like there be like an international school that's based off of like an american curriculum or canadian or
british so it really depends on the international school um and then they would also have the
individual efl departments in their school often times requirements are pretty high for
international schools so you will get a tefl or a tesol certificate you would
also need a degree oftentimes it is a master's degree
also having to do with either the subject that you want to teach or english tefl teasol
again years of experience is preferred usually required and oftentimes they
also want you to have a teaching license from your home country so for example if this if it's an american international
school they won't want you they have an american teaching license to be an actual teacher
from america to work there because their
curriculum is based off the american school model so they want you to be aware and familiar with that so some
international schools do that but there are also some other ones that have fewer less requirements that are
not that strict so it really depends on the school and their own model
benefits and vacation yeah typically they you would also get long vacations every year
and the salaries here at international schools is usually the highest
um compared to all the other schools we covered so far so that's why
working for an international school is super super competitive you can see the competitiveness bar down there uh it's
red it's super competitive it's not really easy to get in
it's not impossible um it's just yeah they have expectations and there
are not that many international schools around that are actively always hiring so that's why it's very competitive and
because the the pay is so good the prestige um the vacations
typically are very good so that's why everybody kind of wants to work there
and this is something that you can pursue after a couple of years of teaching english abroad you're like okay
and now i'm gonna get my masters um [Music] and then this is something i want to
pursue then maybe you also would need to go back get your teaching license and then you can work at any international
school around the world yeah so yeah that's international schools
let's have a look at what is next
so that was all the different types of schools now we're going to look at
um other sort of workplaces and this is working directly for companies so some
companies they actually hire their own english teachers to develop courses and
teach english classes to their staff and most of these jobs they also entail
additional responsibilities outside of teaching english so because you are kind of also an employee at the company you
would give english classes to the native people the the
local employees to brush up their english to teach them english for business purposes but then you would
also have additional responsibilities like maybe you know inter interpreting
when there's business meetings or you would have to go to business trips to other companies act as a yeah mediator
interpreter translator so these can all be different additional responsibilities
that you might have it really depends on the company of course on the contract what they also
need at the company so but that's typically what we see requirements really depend on the
company but typically it would be a tefl certificate a tesol certificate um a
university degree in most cases and then also usually work experience in the
field so if the company you're working for is like uh for example for example a
a tech company i don't know um then they would also prefer somebody who also worked in this field so that you know
what you're talking about right and you know how to best prep your colleagues and co-workers in that
field and what kind of special vocabulary and english language they need to know for this job so yeah yeah
juliana says that is a cool job it is a cool job it's kind of it's really cool i agree
i would like to do that so benefits and vacation um yeah i mean with vacation you would
obviously be employed like the other employees so you would have the same
like vacation days as the other people so it depends on the country that you work in what they have
um this type of job also usually usually gets a higher pay
um compared to like uh private language schools for example because you also have these additional
jobs you also have fewer teaching hours and like i said the other additional
responsibilities so this kind of job is very um very varied you do a lot of different
things you work with a lot of different people and this could be a great alternative
for people who are kind of sick of teaching i know after a couple of years many people feel this way they don't
want to teach anymore so maybe then they can transition to something like this
um competitiveness is relatively high um i would say medium
um this type of work depends on also the country um i know that this is very common for
example in latin america mexico where they have close ties with the u.s
there this type of job is very common in asia you can also find this i
actually know someone who is doing this i think for samsung in seoul
one of those i think was samsung um but it's not that common
depends so um yeah that's why competitiveness is a little bit on the higher side because these kinds of jobs
are not as abundant as working for a language school for example but they are
out there and that's why i recommend you checking out last week's live session
where i talked about the different resources on finding teaching jobs because this kind of position would
require looking into a little bit more of the resources like linkedin or
facebook groups that i talked about and then you can find these advertised jobs there
okay good let's have a look at the next one which is private classes so this is basically
private tutoring so the teacher finds their own students to teach
you can set the price of your classes and you can teach at home the student's home a public space like a cafe a
library um anywhere and requirements obviously they are up
to the students so the student makes the decision if they hire you as their
private tutor or not so it depends obviously the more uh req the more um credentials background
you have the better so tefl t is always great to have experience
um that's great for having private benefits vacation is really up to you so
you define how much you work how much you earn how much you charge for your tutoring
and i put down here um visa regulations so typically this is something uh that
you can only do either in your home country or when you already have
a uh long-term kind of resident visa for a different country right so i live in
south korea i have a long-term uh like residence permit
so then i can do this kind of job however if you're only like on a tourist visa then technically it would be
illegal to do so so you do check that out what the regulations are
um what i know from my own experience a lot of people are doing this that are in my
position they you know live abroad um they have a teaching background now they
have this long-term visa so um they take on a lot of different
jobs right so maybe we teach they teach part-time at like a kindergarten and
then the other half of the time they have private students because their visa allows them to do that
obviously this is not going to fit for everybody but maybe you can you know start doing that in
your home country as well teach another language it doesn't have to be english maybe i know juliana here she um teaches
chinese so that's also somewhere to start and this is also teaching experience right so when somebody talks
about teaching experience it doesn't only have to be english right you also get teaching experience from
teaching other things other languages instruments hobbies doesn't matter
all of that is teaching experience which can help you later on then for finding other teaching positions basically
and here competitiveness bar i put very low because literally you can find private students anywhere um you can put
that up on your local like community board or wherever you are word of mouth
um spread the word that you're looking for someone to tutor and you will usually
always find somebody so this is another option that a lot of people are doing also to supplement their income
if you work at like a a public school for example uh where the
pay is lower than a private school and you have less teaching hours you have more vacation you have more free
time a lot of teachers are then doing some private tutoring in their free time for example
all right i think there's there's two more i believe let's have a look
yes volunteer teach is next okay so volunteering is a great way to
gain experience while studying or also before looking for paid positions to get
experience right and also to experience something really fun and rewarding
so this can be anything from teaching new arrivals or like refugees in your
home country to teaching monks for example in nepalese monasteries so there's really a
wide range of volunteer teaching opportunities around the world especially in
latin america in africa in the middle east in asia literally all around the
world you can find these kinds of positions um the requirements they're often
literally no requirements because people are just happy that you want to do this and they take anyone they can get who
really wants to help the cause but obviously if you want to volunteer teach english you need to be at least
fluent in english benefits vacation i mean as you can expect
typically there's no pay and the contract that you usually have is for a certain period of time which is also
great because most teaching contracts are actually for a year or even two years so if you don't have that much
time or you don't want to commit to that much time volunteer teaching can be a great
opportunity to go abroad and teach for just a short amount of time so there's
volunteer opportunities for like a year for a month sorry four weeks six weeks eight weeks three months those
are like short-term teaching opportunities you can typically find with volunteer teaching
however good and reliable volunteer programs they often cost money
um so it's well you don't get paid but usually you want to go through a
good program and they do cost money because they place you there they give you a room to stay in etc so it's not
actually free most of the time um you have to pay a little bit of money
for that for this experience but it can be really rewarding you can
gain valuable experience not only teaching experience but also for you
personally um so i think that's a great thing for somebody
um to do for certain competitiveness again very low because
there are so many programs so many people who need um you know this type of
assistance so if you really want to go abroad to volunteer teach you always find
somewhere um so competitiveness is very low
okay i think we are yeah i think this is the last one now
so teaching online obviously also an opportunity something
to think about um especially these days um and we did many previous live sessions specifically
about teaching english online because it's just become it's there's been a huge boom basically
um yeah the demand for online english teaching has been booming in past years especially
um due to covet and not only but more and more people are having access to
internet um in remote locations but they don't have access to native english teachers
for example so with the internet they now have access to these teachers and that has been creating this boom
teaching online allows you to work from anywhere and at any time you want so this is also something that's super
attractive for people they can make their own hours their own schedule they can travel while still
working on the go so this has been something that's very um attractive for many people
requirements are typically the same now like for teaching abroad so a tefl or a
t-cell certificate a four-year degree typically even sometimes teaching experience always
preferred always a plus um so that's great with benefits and vacation
it's all up to you you define how much you work when you take a break how much
you charge how much you earn typically you can also define that so um this is really up to you you have all the power
in your hands with teaching online basically if you want to learn more about teaching english online go ahead
and check out our previous our playlist full full of previous live sessions
again lots of information specifically about teaching english online not only from me but also my colleague lisa who
is a russian english teacher and she taught english in china and now she's
back in russia and she's been teaching english online she has a very successful teaching english online
set up i would say she has a lot of experience lots of students she's yeah she's great and she shares a lot of that
stuff here on our platform so do check her out competitiveness is very low because
there are so many different teaching platforms out there nowadays so if you really want to teach english online
typically you would find a platform to join there are many opportunities
so do that juliana says my county has a lot of communi community-based volunteering
services yeah so even you don't even need to go abroad to volunteer you can also do this in your community so um
great absolutely good stuff all right
yeah so this was the last one and now i would like to know from you which type of school or workplace
do you like the most from all the ones we covered so we covered public government-run schools we covered
private language institutes we covered private schools so private elementary school private middle school high school
what have you we covered kindergartens we covered universities we covered international
schools we covered working directly with a company we covered what was after that i need to
go back yeah we covered private classes so private tutoring then we covered
volunteer teaching and then we covered teaching online so which of those
attracts you the most and why which one of those would you like to try out and why
i personally i've tried out working um for kindergarten
and a private elementary school which has both been fun but i think yeah i would really like to
try out working more like the corporate area and i have taught business english
at companies before but that was like just like uh i was not
employed there at the company it was more um like a service and i went there once a week or
sometimes twice a week which was really fun so um maybe that something would be something
that i would be interested in but how about you let me know
