Dreaming of a brand-new career with tons of freedom? We've got just the ticket...

Brought to you by The TEFL Institute of Ireland

Be your own boss, work your own hours and set your own rates. What more could you ask for?

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has led many people to re-evaluate their working life and to think about what they want from their career.

For example, millions of people around the world have realised the benefits of being able to work from home, of being able to work hours that best suit their schedule and revelling in the added freedom that comes with it.

Are you looking for a new start or thinking of a career change?

Are flexibility and freedom are high up on your list of priorities?

Then a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification could be right up your street.

While actually relocating to teach English in an another country is a difficult prospect at the moment, teaching English online is the fastest-growing area of TEFL certification and it’s not hard to see why.

You can do it from the comfort of your own home, choose your own hours and set your own rates, earning up to €30 per hour teaching students from all around the world without having to leave the house.

And it’s not as if there’s a shortage of willing students out there either.

In total, there are 1.5 billion English-language learners worldwide. It is by a distance the world’s most commonly studied language and approximately 375 million people speak it as their second language.

Even better, as far as Ireland is concerned, because of our reputation around the globe, Irish teachers are in high demand on online teaching platforms worldwide.

You don’t need to have a teaching background either. No degree or previous teaching experience to teach English abroad is required and with a TEFL certification from the TEFL Institute of Ireland, you could be qualified and earning money within four weeks.

That qualification will last you a lifetime and it will always be of use, whether through hard times when you need something to fall back on, or if you want to earn some money in some far-flung location when it is eventually OK for us to travel the world again.

The TEFL Institute of Ireland offer the chance for people from the ages of 17 upwards to become fully qualified with a reputable and trusted accredited provider.

TEFL can be confusing and hard to understand, with so many providers offering different options. At the TEFL Institute, they have over 20 years’ experience and will make the process as simple as possible.

The TEFL Institute of Ireland are also the only Irish-based provider to offer the Government Regulated 180-Hour Level 5 TEFL course - RQF: 601/5234/5, which is the equivalent of a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) course.

The webinar is being held at 3pm on Friday, 21 August. Make sure to reserve your spot here as places are limited.
