You don’t need to have a degree in Education or any previous teaching experience to start your career as an English language teacher. You just need to take a TESOL, TEFL, or TESL certification course that is recognized by TESL Canada. This accreditation is required by language schools in Canada and it is also internationally recognized, so you can use your certification to teach English abroad if you want to teach and travel for a while.
Teach English in Canada or Go Abroad!
TESL Canada is one of the top 3 accrediting bodies in the world. The other two are the UK-based CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL. There are many weekend and online programs offered in Canada, but only those that are recognized by one of the top 3 accrediting bodies are accepted for paid teaching jobs worldwide. The other online or weekend courses may be enough to get an entry-level job in a developing country, but the certification won’t be accepted for career advancement opportunities by top language programs. You will also have to take your certification from the very beginning if you want to teach English in Canada because these weekend and online courses are not accepted by language schools for full-time employment even if you have plenty of teaching experience.
