TEFL jobs in Poland
It’s not just the availability of TEFL jobs in Poland that draws qualified English teachers to the country. Poland has plenty to offer with rich history, great travel opportunities, cool cosmopolitan culture and warm hospitality.
Poland’s low cost of living affords EFL teachers in the country a comfortable lifestyle. Eating and drinking out, as well as travel within the country, is all very affordable and teachers can easily save a portion of their wages each month. And unlike most other countries in Europe, accommodation is frequently included in contracts, so keep that in mind when looking at salaries.
Where to find work in Poland
Be sure to check requirements carefully before applying as many jobs will specify not just that you have a degree, but that it should be in an English-related subject. Schools that ask for CELTA qualified or equivalent are unlikely to hire a teacher with just an online TEFL certificate. When comparing jobs, make sure you have the figures for gross and net pay as this can make a big difference, and also whether accommodation is included free, subsidised or not included at all. Also, there’s much variation in contract length rather than the standard one-year contract, so check all the details before applying.
