  CAN I WORK IN SOUTH AMERICA?
"I am a 53 year old female who is considering taking a TEFL course to become certified to teach English as a means of supporting myself in a Spanish speaking country for the coming winter. I do not have an undergraduate degree, however, have over 20 years business management experience in which I frequently was responsible for training personnel who reported to me. Can you tell me, honestly, if I were to become certified as a TEFL instructor WITHOUT an undergraduate degree, would I have the ability to work in Central America, or would their labor laws prevent hiring me for wages?"

FORMAL QUALIFICATIONS?
Q.
I am interested in teaching English in Italy, but cannot find any information on suitable courses for me. I understand that I need formal qualifications to be able to undertake a TEFL course, unfortunately I do not have this. Are there any courses available that do not require formal qualifications? - S.P.

A.
You are correct in assuming that most TEFL certification courses expect the applicant to have a degree or equivalent as, essentially, they are post graduate courses. However, just as Universities and colleges are usually open to consider matrure students who do not fall into this category, so do many of these course providers. Therefore, I suggest that you ask the organisation/s you are considering to check if they fall into this category. The TEFL.com International Courses' Directory is at http://tefl.com/courses
