Spanish qualifications
Q.
I am a 24 years old native Spanish holding a Bachelor of Arts in English Language, Literature and Culture(obtained in 2007 in Spain) and a 120 hours teaching certificate (called C.A.P), of which 40 hours are in English teaching plus 32 hours practice in a Spanish second-level school (both observation and practice). I am currently doing a nine months internship in a language school in Ireland as a EFL teacher, finishing in few weeks. I am pursuing to gain more experience and qualifications and an English speaking country seems the best place to me. However, I do not know if with my CV at the moment and the experience gained here and that I had back home will be enough to be considered as a candidate for any teaching position. I have been told to do the CELTA certificate before applying to any position. I have also been told that I may have few problems since my qualifications have been awarded by a Spanish university and not an Irish or UK one. I am just getting bits and pieces of information here and there...any recommendation? May I have any chance with my background? Any answer very much appreciated.

A.
It seems a good decision to gain more experience in English-speaking countries and prospective employers should see that you are serious about forwarding your TEFL career. It might be worth enquiring with the British Council to see if they have official equivalences for CAP and your degree. By being a native Spanish speaker, you also have another skill to offer schools, in particular, those with Spanish-speaking clients.
