Teach Abroad Scholarship

In response to the rise in Graduate unemployment and the continuing weakness in the
domestic graduate job market, we have developed a Graduate TEFL Programme. TEFL is the acronym for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and there is a tremendous global demand for trained TEFL teachers.

As a Social Enterprise, our profits are re-invested back into providing employment and
training opportunities, and we are therefore able to offer a number of Full Scholarships onto the Programme (which usually costs £529.00) each year. Although primarily aimed at unemployed Graduates, Undergraduates are also eligible to apply for a scholarship and Final Year students in particular are encouraged to apply.

In order to be considered for the next round of Scholarships, please send your CV and
Cover Letter ASAP.

Our Programme consists of two key strands:

  1.  A 150 hour distance-learning Diploma TEFL Course; giving participants the skills,
    confidence, and qualifications to get their ideal teaching job abroad.
  2. A Job Advisory Service providing expert support to ensure participants find work and choose the most appropriate position for them personally. We work with quality Schools and Agencies throughout the world to make sure our students get the pick of some of the best English Language teaching jobs around. If you would rather find your own position, our Job Advisory Service will help you focus your search and provide bespoke advice concerning your applications to ensure you get the job you want.

The specific duties and remuneration you can expect when teaching abroad obviously varies depending on a range of factors, for example: location, size of school, type of school (private or state), age of students etc. One of the key roles of our Job Placement Service is to help you decide what would suit you best.
