  Is a CRB check necessary to teach overseas?
"I recently applied to teach English in Korea. Despite the fact that I hold a TESOL qualification and am a qualified secondary school teacher I was told that I would not be accepted due to having a criminal record. I committed a public order offense which occurred nine years ago when I was 19 but have no other convictions. Please could you let me know whether all countries have a zero tolerance policy on criminal records as I can't seem to locate this information on the internet. If this is not the case, please could you let me know which countries I would be eligible to work in."

WORK PLACEMENT
Q.
As a student of the University of Limerick in Ireland, a period of cooperative education/work placement forms an integral part of my degree. Being also a student of Spanish I intend to spend this coming semester, commencing in February/ March 2001, teaching English in Spain. Although, I can opt to have my University arrange a placement for me, this option restricts the level of personal choice allowed. I have recently completed a short introductory course in TEFL, which was hosted by my home University, however I can't help wondering if this will be enough to secure a reasonably good position should I choose to find my own. Even though I am open to suggestions, of all destinations in Spain, Seville springs to mind. If you could point me in the right direction at all it would be greatly appreciated. My degree is that of BA European Studies, namely law, history, Spanish, and German, and I am also taking Japanese as part of the Business degree.

A.
Going to Spain in the middle of the academic year will probably reduce your employment options as the main staff intake takes place in September/ October and there may be some (not usually much) in January after the Christmas break. Therefore, it may be safer to opt for your University arranged placement. That way the host organisation will also have accepted you for your current level of training, which they will almost certainly take into consideration.
