  QUALIFIED, LOOKING FOR EXPERIENCE
"I am a TESOL accredited teacher (founder of NALATIE), authorized by both the Canadian and American government. I have also just obtained my Bachelor of Arts from the Dept. of English from a well known University in Montreal, Canada. I will also be undergoing a course soon on how to teach TOEFL. I have some experience privately tutoring and teaching ESL, but seek to cultivate and expand my experience. My question is this: Are there many opportunities to go abroad and do some kind of a teaching internship, some kind of teacher training, or teacher's aide program, preferably within South or Central America? I am primarily looking for experience right now. Considering my above mentioned credentials, could you give me some advice and help? It would be so greatly appreciated. A. "

STAY OR MOVE ON?
Q.
I am in a quandary as to whether to stay within a large TEFL organisation and hope for promotion in time or whether to go for a job with Director of Studies responsibility in a small, relatively little known school. What would you advise ?

A.
It rather depends on your own priorities and needs. Either way, it sounds like you want to stay within the profession for some years to come. While the DOS job may immediately give you more in the way of salary and a change of job content plus a challenge, the larger organisation may provide in-house professional development with greater career opportunities in the long run. I would suggest that you ask your line manager what, if any, development opportunities they can provide and what future prospects for promotion might exist. Only then, can you make an informed decision as to what is best for you at the moment.
