Hey everyone; I thought that I would blog about my TEFLing adventures other the Zero To Hero assignments (which I am enjoying more than I thought I would). I am currently at 130 hours of my i-to-i TEFL qualification; therefore I am 10 hours over most of the job opportunities that i-to-i are advertising on the Jobs Board.
I have been sorting out my CV ready for my applications TEFL jobs; I have seen so many different examples on how to present my TEFL CV. I know that I can just add my TEFL qualification to my current CV as it is linked to Education (mostly Deaf related education though).
I have been job hunting on the i-to-i job board and I thought that doing a Summer Camp in Europe this summer to gain some teaching experience. I have printed off the information for a Summer Camp in Italy with Lingue Senza Frontiere. A part of the application I have to plan what activites to do with them using last year’s camp theme. Fantastic idea, right? However, this Summer camp involves acting. Drama is good; I like Drama but I don not have much experience in it. My colleagues at work have told me go for it; especially the Drama teachers. They tell me that I have a flair for Drama…to be honest I don’t fully believe them!
I have also seen an advert for teaching in Turkey with Teach to Travel Ltd; free housing is a plus though.
The internships in either China or Poland are what I really want to do. Poland is “Sold Out” and China is a little too close to the closing date to pay the required amount and book flights with; if you all remember the post I wrote about how much I would have to save each month to achieve the amount?! Even with my 130 hours; I will have to do an extra 20 hours in the country as a part of the internship. I am happy to do that! I am also looking into the Thailand internship.
Flight wise; I have decided, if I have enough Avios points I will travel by British Airways but if I do not I will be using Skyscanner for all my flying needs!
