  NON-NATIVE SPEAKER TEACHERS ABROAD
"I'm a Russian Teacher of English, graduated from Teachers Training University in Russia. I'm interested in working abroad in TEFL.. My teaching experience is about 14 years and with Russians. I know exactly that TEFL teachers are in demand the world over. What should I do to start my career in TEFL abroad? Most of Schools consider natives. But is there any chance for non-natives to have a chance? Could you recommend me any school that could be interested in non-natives? "

GOING BACK TO THE UK
Q.
I've been teaching outside Britain for over 11 years now and am really keen to get a well-paid permanent job teaching EFL back in England. Problem is, how do I go about it? Even though I am diploma qualified and have lots of varied experience the problem always arises that employers always want to interview. Trouble is that 1. I can't just take time off and fly thousands of miles for a job I might not get anyway and 2. I can' risk giving up my job and going back to the UK on a job hunt! Any suggestions?

A.
I understand your predicament and I am sure any sensible employer would too. However, obviously you have to bridge that gap that an interview would fill. My suggestion would be to put together a professional portfolio of your work which supports your c.v. and demonstrates the breadth and depth of your knowledge, ability and experience. It should also include video samples (not hours and hours) of your teaching. Once you have this together, you can either post it by normal mail or have it digitised and sent electronically to prospective employers.
