  HOPE FOR OVER 50 AND NO DEGREE?
"I live in Victoria British Columbia and I have just registered in a TEFL teaching course. There seem to be some problems and I can't seem to get proper answers from anyone and I am hoping you can set me straight. It seems that my past education does not qualify me for teaching in very many countries, and also my age seems to be a real deterrent. Please set me straight if you can. I am now 58 years of age and when I finish the course in summer of 2001 I will be 59. I have no University degree so this was the only course I could register into. It seems that almost every country I have tried to seek information from says that I must have a university degree along with this certificate. Those few countries that did seem to say I was okay with the TEFL appear to be looking for people no older that 30-35 years of age. I would like to teach in one of these countries in order of preference, Asia, Africa (Botswana) Thailand or South America. All I ask of you is that you please supply me with as much information as possible as to where I may be able to get employment teaching English with my age and qualifications taken into consideration. I am presently living in Canada and have done so for some 30 years. I am born in England and hold dual citizenship. "

Gone are the days when any native English speaker seeking a life of travel and adventure could pursue a successful career as a Teacher of English as a Foreign/Second Language without experience or qualifications. Almost all employers now seek teachers with a TEFL/TESL qualification plus experience, in addition to a first degree. Many even insist on an MA Linguistics/TEFL/TESL postgraduate qualification.

With an average of 63 applications for each EFL/ESL post advertised, it is now more important than ever before for the TEFL/TESL professional to participate in a recognised course and gain a qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language.

The TEFL Professional Network guide to Teacher Development Programmes is organised according to country/location. Simply select the country/location in which you wish to study, from the Course Locations menu on this page, and hit "go!". Remember that several organisations are also offering Teacher Development Programmes via the Internet. E-mail and snailmail links to these programmes may also be accessed from the locations menu.

Institutions providing Teacher Development Programmes may submit their details for inclusion in our guide. Simply click here and complete the application.
