Qualifications

Teachers wishing to apply for these openings should be native English speaking and hold any of the following TEFL qualifications: RSA/ Cambridge or Trinity College London Certificate, or equivalent; or, RSA/ Cambridge Diploma or Trinity College Licentiate Diploma; or, PGCE with TEFLA/ TESOL University degree or equivalent.

Applicants with relevant university diplomas (English, journalism, linguistics, etc.) or relevant EFL experience may waiver TEFL or TESOL qualifications.

Qualifications are important but they are only one of the elements that make a successful teacher. Just as important are:

* Personality:
Much an EFL teacher's success results from his or her ability to be flexible, open-minded and outgoing. Equally important is a keen interest in other peoples and cultures and an empathy for the needs of students.

* Commitment:
You will never be an exceptional teacher until you understand and accept the concept that teaching is an investment in your future; thus, it requires your time and energy. A willingness to work hard and see the job as a significant step in a long-term career, either in or outside EFL is essential. So, too, is a willingness to give of oneself and one's skills to people who are depending upon them. No less important is a willingness to learn from one's students as well as to teach them.
