29 June 2012TEFL attracts gap year students, travel enthusiasts and also qualified teachers who are out of work. As the demand for PGCE teachers in the UK plummets, the demand for native English TEFL teachers worldwide continues to rise. In the UK last year over 38,000 teachers were unemployed - more than double the figure from 5 years ago. Be it fewer jobs or overstretched school budgets, it is a hard time for teachers in the UK. For many teachers in this position teaching English abroad is a popular alternative to unemployment.
TEFL can be a short term alternative to struggling to find work in the UK but equally can turn into a long term career path for teachers that love it so much. Many TEFL jobs come with a decent wage and other benefits such as accommodation, meals and sometimes flights.
