What Certification Do You Need to Teach English Abroad?

When it comes to teaching English abroad, there are three different certifications you can obtain. In this post, we'll be focusing on the following three certifications and which one you need to be an English teacher overseas:

  • TEFL - Teaching English as a Foreign Language
  • TESOLTeachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages
  • CELTACertificate in English Language Teaching to Adults

 

  • At least 100 hours of training and coursework (equivalent to a full-time 4-week  intensive course),
  • At least 6 hours of live practice teaching (practicum) with actual ESL students (not role-playing!),
  • The course is taught by experienced university-level instructors (many holding at least an MA in teaching English as a foreign language or linguistics, a DELTA or extensive professional training and English teaching experience),
  • The course employs a curriculum that is accredited and externally monitored by an independent, credible organization in the field.



please note

As the Government gets stricter on illegal workers, it is important to make sure you have the right qualifications. 


Although online courses are still accepted by the Immigration Department as part of the work permit process, it is unlikely this will continue. 


It is highly advisable and sensible to take a course which has an in-class component (such as a CELTA or TrinityTESOL. This will help you to become a more confident and competent teacher, and also to work in most countries around the world.

Employers around the world ask for CELTA. It’s the practical English language teaching qualification that gives you the essential knowledge, hands-on teaching experience and classroom confidence to qualify as a teacher of English as a Second Language (ESL).

 
 

CELTA is great for recent graduates, people who are changing career, or teachers who want to gain a formal qualification and may want to progress to qualifications such as Delta.
