Do you possess an appropriate certification/credential/qualification from an English speaking country?
Although we will consider candidates without a teaching license (but who have teaching experience), close to 70% of our schools will require candidates to have teaching certification. Additionally, schools will prefer that certification/qualification to have come from the U.S, Canada, UK, Australia or New Zealand. Much of this is the result of host country restrictions in obtaining a VISA/working permit. While not all schools require a valid teaching credential, many do; thus, having a teaching credential will enhance your competitiveness.
A teaching license is not always required but most of our affiliated academic institutions require a minimum number of years’ worth of teaching experience and a teaching certification preferably from English speaking countries such as the U.S, Canada, UK, Australia or New Zealand. This preference is almost heavily influenced by the VISA/working permit requirement set by the host country. Therefore, a strong teaching credential from the abovementioned English speaking countries will increase your competitiveness.
Are you open to working anywhere in the world?
Your geographical preference can increase/decrease the possibility of securing immediate employment. Putting a limitation to the countries you prefer to work for may slow down your application process and may also increase the likelihood of getting more applicants competing for the same position, making it more difficult to be hired. If you have no qualms being assigned to any part of the globe, it can lead to more job opportunities.
