I was thinking of enrolling in a TELF TESOL Certification Course with the International Academy in Florence or Sardinia in Italy. It is a 4 week course with the view of teaching English in Italy or abroad. I am hopeful to obtain a teaching job in Italy after the completion of the course.
I have an Bachelor of Laws and have practiced as a lawyer for the last three years, but am looking for a new and exciting challenge! I will be getting my Italian passport next week.
Does anyone have experience with these types of courses? Any tips? Advice? How many of these jobs are going around once you qualify? How much would accommodation and living expenses cost me in Florence?
I note that the website states that the “International TELF Academy offers lifetime job placement assistance for all our graduates”. This promises assistance, not employment.
Thanks in advance for your help!
