Where do teachers go when they finish the program?
Roughly two-thirds of our trainees go overseas to teach, and the other third teach in the United States. Many trainees, once they have begun teaching, find it so rewarding that they decide to teach both in the U.S. and abroad.
How does LADO help with the job search?
All of the LADO teacher trainers have extensive experience teaching EFL/ESL in a wide variety of situations in the USA and in countries around the world. The training staff is in constant communication with international and domestic language schools. During the course and afterwards, we provide personal job search assistance by providing job leads, contacts, school information, and extensive use of our worldwide alumni network to identify teaching opportunities.
The program provides far more than just job leads, however. We thoroughly prepare trainees for all aspects of transitioning to a new job or career. Trainees learn about the interview process– what to say and do and how to say and do it. Our knowledgeable and experienced trainers give advice and assistance to help trainees make good choices when they receive job offers. We review employment contracts and job offers and help trainees negotiate the many requirements and need-to-know details of living and working abroad. We teach trainees what to look for in their school search and how to make the most of their first days and weeks on the job and in a new environment.
After you have successfully completed the LADO TEFL Certificate Course, final lesson plan, final test, and submitted a satisfactory toolbox, you will receive:
1.A TEFL Certificate within 30 days. The Certificate will be accompanied by an in-depth synopsis of your achievements during the course, the course requirements and expectations,
2. A letter that will give any potential employer or university a deep understanding of the rigorous demands LADO asks of each trainee.
Despite the 30 days you may have to wait for the certificate, you will immediately be able to move forward professionally following the course. At LADO we feel that we are only successful if our trainees are, so we will do anything in our power to help you achieve your goals.
Please note: for trainees taking part in LADO TEFL Scholarship programs through an overseas partner, credentials can be provided for visa purposes after final lessons. **
