Dingwall, United Kingdom, June 30, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- David Cameron’s plans to cut housing benefits for the under 25’s makes teaching English abroad an even more attractive option for young people today. If young people can’t get a job in the UK, why not teach English abroad in China, South Korea or even Kazakhstan?
Young people from all over the UK are struggling to find employment. Some may find themselves burdened by debt or their student loan. In the last quarter of 2011, unemployment in the 16-24 age group stood at over one million, the highest it has been since 1986*. David Cameron’s recent plan to cut housing benefits for those under 25 could mean as many as 380,000 young people will be affected*, leading to an even more difficult economic environment for this particular age group. TEFL Scotland courses now offer disenfranchised young people, without qualifications, the opportunity to escape poverty and work abroad.
So how do they take the first step to teaching English abroad?
TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) courses are not regulated and there is no single accrediting body working to ensure the quality of TEFL courses. This could make it difficult for customers to differentiate between the many different TEFL course providers and can mean those on low incomes make poor choices on cost alone.
TEFL Scotland provides customers with quality assurance through a number of accrediting educational bodies, and their courses have successfully achieved accreditation from the ODLQC, Investors in People and the NCFE as well as being a SQA approved centre.
TEFL Scotland can provide anyone who is unsure of their future, whether long-term or short-term, with an exciting opportunity to travel and live abroad whilst earning money. The wide recognition of TEFL Scotland through multiple accreditations, especially their recent NCFE accreditation, is firm assurance that your course is of the highest quality and value.
One of the founders of TEFL Scotland is delighted to now offer the NCFE certificate of achievement on course completion:
“Receiving NCFE accreditation for our courses is further testament to the quality course provision we strive to provide.” -Joe Hallwood
Whether young, old, in possession of a degree or not, a TEFL course could change your life, providing you with new skills and valuable, paid work experience. With affordable options, endless opportunities abroad and exclusive access to the TEFL Job Centre, the perfect career break, gap year, graduate venture or life change, is well within your reach!
Many of TEFL Scotland’s graduates go on to work abroad. Here are some of their current vacancies:
Teach English in China and earn a salary of 6000-12000 RMB per month, get free accommodation and even Mandarin lessons.
2. South Korea
Employers are hiring native English speakers now for fantastic TEFL jobs in South Korea. Good salaries and great benefits make South Korea the place to go if you want to experience a new culture and save money.
More and more TEFL jobs are becoming available in Kazakhstan. Demand is high and so are salaries in this interesting destination.
