What if I don’t meet the requirements for any open positions?

What you should do if you don't currently meet the requirements for any of our open jobs

If you don't meet the requirements for our current listings it just means you might need to wait until you see a job that's perfect for you. Our job board is updated weekly with new teaching positions.

If you're looking at job postings and see certain requirements reoccur, it might be time to consider investing time or money in those requirements. For example, if you want to teach in the UAE and most schools there want their candidates to have teaching experience, maybe you could volunteer or tutor at a local school. Or if you can see that the jobs you're interested in all require a TEFL certification, maybe it's time to take the plunge and enrol in an TEFL certification.

Just because you don't qualify today, doesn't mean you won't qualify tomorrow!

We also encourage you to sign up for job alerts by email from Teach Away, so you’re always the first to know about new openings that match your qualifications and experience.
