What kinds of qualifications are schools seeking from teachers?
The minimum qualification acceptable to teach English in most countries is a 120-hour TESOL certificate
. If you are a native speaker of English and you hold a degree there are more opportunities available. As the profession is becoming more and more competitive, teachers wishing to advance their careers are usually expected to gain higher qualifications such as TESL Canada
, CELTA, Trinity CertTESOL, or equivalent.
