    Top Teaching Markets That Value Maturity and Life Experience

    Top Teaching Markets That Value Maturity and Life Experience
    Admin - Feb 02 2016

    While it is no secret that certain regions make it more difficult for TEFL instructors of a certain age to find work, there are still various markets who value the experience that comes with hiring more mature TEFL instructors.  Focusing your job search on these markets will help the process along, but freelance teaching (i.e. tutoring without a third party school involved) and using your experience to specialize in teaching a target market (i.e. teaching business English) are also great ways for these candidates to get your foot in the door.

    1. China

    Want to go somewhere where your life and work experience and appreciated and coveted? China is the place for you! With a large market for teachers of all ages, Chinese schools are a great option for mature candidates. Chinese schools offer a lot of benefits for teachers including accommodation, insurance, flight reimbursement and language classes.

    2. The Middle East

    There are lots of positions for mature candidates throughout the Middle East. Schools in this region love experienced candidates and value teachers with lengthy international expertise. Middle Eastern schools provide a lot of incentives for candidates like medical insurance, flight reimbursement, visas and housing.

    3. Latin America

    Countries throughout Latin America, particularly Costa Rica, welcome candidates of any age and background. Mature candidates who are looking for more flexibility in their work schedule should look no further because Latin America would be the ideal fit.

     

    The best bet for more mature candidates interested in teaching English abroad is to use your age as an advantage.  While some countries might still practice some age discrimination, there are many schools out there who would be happy to have you and will value your experience.  And remember, the more flexible you are, the easier it will be!
