TEFL basics: Where to find a teaching job


As we move into 2022, and after two years of Covid and travel restrictions itchy feet need to be scratched, whether in terms of wanderlust or economic necessity. So, if you’re new to TEFL and wondering where to look for a job we’ve rounded up the ‘go-to’s’ in handy list.




A note about volunteering: while this may be the route for many people to get some on the job experience, check out your placement provider carefully. If you’re asked to pay for the experience then red flag it.


For other red flags in job postings and interviews see our employment and job advice blogs… and make sure your TEFL qualification will satisfy work visa requirements - see here…
