Get the Work Flexibility of Your Dreams with TEFL!

flexible working

 

An estimated 14.1 million people in Britain want flexibility in their working hours

Do you dream of a job that allows you to control your own timetable? Where you can take a mid-morning yoga class, avoid the rush hour or spend the afternoon on the beach? Where you get to choose the hours that you work, around the other important aspects of your life?

Flexibility is said to be the future of how we work but in reality jobs with flexible hours are far and few between. Many people are looking for a way to improve their quality of life by gaining control over their working hours, but the options for achieving this are currently very limited. One of the best ways to get more work flexibility in your life is by becoming an English language teacher. As an English language teacher you have the power to choose your hours, work from home, freelance on multiple jobs and fit in everything else that is important to you.

Improve the Quality of Your Life: Jobs with Flexible Hours

When you start working as an English teacher, regardless of where in the world you are, you will be able to consider different types of flexible working options and choose one that feels right for you. From working from home to working part-time, from job-sharing to freelancing, you will gain total control over your schedule by doing the job when it suits you, without jeopardising your work-life balance.

Nowadays, whether you want to work from the beach or your bedroom, technology makes it easier to work from anywhere. The TEFL industry is at the forefront of embracing this opportunity as flexible working arrangements benefit both parties – the employees and the companies. Many jobs in the Education and Training sector, due to seasonal demand and the nature of the work, require people that can commit to a flexible working solution.

Many English teachers now combine a variety of jobs in a freelance capacity to support their lifestyle. Examples of this are: teaching online across continents and time zones, examining for short periods in other countries, marking exams online, delivering private tuition online and face to face, teaching pre-sessional courses at universities, hosting and teaching students in their homes.

The opportunities are endless and taking a TEFL Course to become a certified teacher is a great choice if you are looking for a better work-life balance, looking to improve your well-being, or looking for a career change. It even gives you the option of moving abroad to pursue that goal of working from the beach!

How to choose the right TEFL Course?

It’s important to have the right certificate that will allow you to pursue your dream job. Within the TEFL industry there are several certificates you can pursue but only a few will give you an official certification that is recognised internationally. It’s important to gain the right qualification if you want to give yourself the best chance of being hired for the most desirable roles.

The two internationally recognised English teacher training qualifications are the Cambridge CELTA and the Trinity CertTESOL. There are just a few differences between these two qualifications – “Cambridge CELTA and Trinity TESOL, What’s the Difference?” Both are accredited by highly respected institutions: CertTESOL by Trinity College London and CELTA by University of Cambridge English Language Assessment.

Where can you take a TESOL or CELTA Course in 2018?

You can take these courses anywhere in the world, from a dreamy destination to the city of London, from Barcelona to Buenos Aires, Athens to Prague. With Cactus you can choose from more than 90 different locations. Cactus only works with high quality, accredited institutions. A CELTA or TESOL course of 120-plus hours with teaching practice will provide you the toolkit you need to start teaching.
