  IS THE DIPLOMA MARKETABLE IN THE US?
"I'm from the U.S. and I'm about to finish my second year teaching in Bydgoszcz, Poland, doing mostly business classes. My school has mentioned the possibility of paying for me to do the RSA/Cambridge Diploma course next summer and, while I know the course would be helpful as far as my teaching skills are concerned, I have a couple of concerns. First, how marketable will I be in the States if I have the Diploma certificate? Secondly, is the Diploma the best training for someone who wants to specialize in business teaching? If not, is there another training course that would better suit me?"

Teaching & retirement
Q.
I would very much appreciate your advice.I am 47 years old and shortly retiring early from the civil service. I do not have a degree but I am considering enrolling on a one month CELTA course. I live in Devon (Totnes), UK and eventually would like to divide my time between here and Spain. What are the realistic prospects of employment both locally and in Spain in these circumstances?

A.
Before investing in any career change it can be worthwhile finding out about and experiencing as much of the prospective profession as possible. You are probably better placed than most to find out about the local TEFL market and, in doing so, you may be able to speak to existing teachers and perhaps even observe a class or two. With regard to Spain. It is possible for newly qualified teachers to obtain a teaching position, depending on the place and the market. However, they have set academic years and term times which would probably require you to spend from at least October to June, in Spain.
