Unemployed graduates who want to teach or work abroad will be able to take advantage of a new scheme from the British Council. 14/03/2011
The Council will subsidise 100 young people who want to pursue careers in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), by allowing them to study a one month Trinity Cert TESOL or Cambridge CELTA course at a UK training provider.
After the course, students will be provided with two days of extra training by the British Council and will be able to work as a teacher abroad.
The programme is designed to help young graduates who may be struggling to find work in the face of the recession, or who may be looking for new career opportunities. Priority for the 2011 intake will be given to graduates who are not currently employed and who finished their studies within the last two years.
‘In many regions around the world there is a huge and growing demand for English language teaching and a need for quality teachers to meet this. This new scheme will help provide unemployed grads with a gateway into an exciting and dynamic career,’ said Michael Carrier, head of English Language Innovation at the British Council.
‘The British Council is the worldwide leader in English language teaching having been involved in training and supporting learners and teachers of English for more than 75 years.’
‘This opportunity will mean that the graduates of this scheme not only gain a much sought-after qualification but will make them part of a vast network of global English language teachers and experts,’ added Mr Carrier.
