Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Students' Union, Training Room 1


Are you interested in a career that allows you to travel and explore new countries? Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is a great option to do this! Open to all subject areas come along and find out what your options are. 

Have you considered a career in teaching but not sure you want to go straight in to a PGCE? TEFL gives you the opportunity to gain more experience while travelling and exploring along the way. At this workshop you will:

  • Get information you need to consider to begin a successful TEFL career.
  • Learn what skills and attributes make a global graduate and how you can market these to secure teaching work internationally.
  • Find out how to investigate the graduate labour market in different countries and key things to consider when thinking about living and working abroad.  

If you require communication or access support please contact Careers & Employment to discuss ways of organising this,
