The Well-Qualified Teacher
Our many years teaching English as a second language has made it clear that the most important component of language education is a well-qualified teacher. Because Green TEFL is operated by an actual English language school, our trainees get access to extensive resources and practical experience in the real teaching environments that they will face in the TEFL employment market. The Green TEFL Course is designed around our 11 years of experience and will prepare you with the teaching skills and employment advice that you need to find a TEFL position anywhere in the world.
The Green TEFL Course is different from other TEFL programs because our trainees learn to teach in real Thai schools. Within your first days of TEFL training, you will be teaching in one of the schools that contract NAVA for teachers and it's this early, authentic experience that instills the relevance of all of the training you will receive. While other courses may overload trainees with theoretical instruction before the trainees ever see the inside of a classroom, Green TEFL grounds all of its instruction in practical teaching and guides your learning through continous contact with real Thai students.
Green TEFL is distinguished by this ability to provide trainees with experience in real Thai schools. While other TEFL programs may provide teaching experience in the private language school environment, these trainees are often ill-prepared to operate in a real work environment. In the TEFL job market, virtually all jobs are found in larger government and private schools where the teaching experience is entirely different. Many graduates of other TEFL programs are shocked to find that their 'practical teaching experience' is of little relevance to the positions they are offered.
We understand that our trainees have practical concerns when they pursue a TEFL certification and we want you to graduate the Green TEFL Course with secure prospects for employment. As an employer of native English speakers, we know exactly what other employers are looking for and our certification is backed by our reputation as a renowned center for English language learning. We give you a leg up on the competition by offering a personalized evaluation letter signed by our head trainer to show to potential employers during your job search. While other first-time teachers may have nothing but a generic certification, your letter of recommendation will significantly improve your marketability.
Furthermore, we offer practical job-search advice as part of our curriculum and our experienced trainers are equally happy to advise trainees outside of class from their personal career experience.
Additionally, the NAVA School of English is always looking for new teachers and while we don't make the misleading employment 'guarantees' of other TEFL courses, we are always seeking new teachers from our own Green TEFL Course.
