“Obtaining your certification tells potential employers that you are prepared and serious about teaching, and you are taking your employment with their school seriously”
As the desire to learn English has increased, so too has the profile of the people who teach it. The number of qualified and experienced English teachers has grown with this rise in demand. As a result, a much higher proportion of job-seekers than ever before are certified to teach ESL, and language schools around the world are becoming more selective when hiring instructors.
If you decide to relocate overseas to teach ESL, you have to be fully prepared to do so, and one of the easiest ways to ensure that you are prepared is to get your certification. Not only does this make finding teaching jobs much easier, but certification also gives you peace of mind.
