Getting a TEFL job

If you’re looking for a TEFL job but don’t really know where to look you could do a lot worse than checking out some of these websites.

Dave’s ESL cafe Dave Sperling’s website with lots of useful material and huge lists of jobs. Plenty of cowboys here as well so read the forums carefully to see what is more likely to be legitimate.

ELT News ELT news is an online magazine based in Japan with lots of ELT features, job offers and an active message board. Very useful for those thinking of heading to Japan. Still useful for other new teachers.

ECC One of my TEFL Trainees recommends ECC and has promised a more detailed report later.

I had a link to the NOVA programme but have now removed it after hearing that they are in serious financial difficulties and aren’t paying their staff. Any more news on this will be very welcome. More details can now be found here

Teaching in Asia website has a lot of information about, yes, teaching in Asia, with an emphasis on Japan and Korea.

The Guardian newspaper has an excellent e.mail alert system for EFL jobs.

The Guardian TEFL Directory is a modest list of experts who are willing to offer advice.
