Teach Abroad Scholarship In response to the rise in Graduate unemployment and the continuing weakness in the graduate job market, ELC has developed a Graduate TESOL Programme. TESOL (also known as TEFL) is the acronym for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and there is a tremendous global demand for trained TESOL 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. 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: A 120-150 hour distance-learning Diploma TESOL Course; giving participants the skills, confidence, and qualifications necessary for TEFL work abroad. A Job Advisory Service providing expert support to help 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 opportunity to apply for the pick of some of the best English Language teaching jobs around. 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. Remuneration will always be considerably higher than the UK Minimum wage. One of the key roles of our Job Advisory Service is to help you decide what position would suit you best. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch by email at:email@example.com Basic Requirements: English as a first language or equivalent Graduate or Undergraduate Good communication skills Enthusiasm about living and working abroad Applications will be judged on their own merits and we do not wish to be overly prescriptive in terms of what we are looking for. Essentially, we want to know why you want to teach abroad and why you believe you should receive a Scholarship place. Enthusiasm and commitment are more important than previous teaching experience (though that may also be taken into account), and we would like to encourage as many people as possible from all disciplines to apply.
