"I am 62, have a BA Hons.degree, Teaching Certificate + Diploma in TESOL from a UK teacher training college.I am hoping to buy a flat/house in Spain/Mallorca shortly. I have many years teaching experience in Sierra Leone as well as in Britain. For the last nine years I have worked as a Section 11 teacher in inner London dealing with children whose first language is not English.The Diploma course was rigorous and I gained an A grade but did not have a teaching component. (I have taught all ages - in Sierra Leone I taught adults and secondary). Could I find a ESOL post there do you think (preferably with young children) or would I be considered too old? Is there any country otherwise where I might be considered?"

Online certificate
It says on some job ads that any on-line certificates or distance learning will not be counted towards certification unless they contain a substantial classroom component. Does this mean if you have completed an online course that you will still have to do the classroom course?

What it probably means is that, if you did not have observed & assessed teaching practice in a classrrom situation included in your certificate course, then it will not count. Some online courses do include a teaching practice component. Others do not.
