If you do not have a degree, there are plenty of schools across the world that will open great opportunities for you, also in the online teaching platforms.
To sign up to a TEFL Scholarship you should be a fluent or a native English speaker, have completed High School education, and have excellent written skills.
IS TEFL HARD TO PASS?
If you are a native English speaker, the success rate for passing it is very high. The level of difficulty will depend on which type of programme you will take. For example, fast track TEFL Scholarships are pitched around High School level and require a score of 80% to pass. Keep in mind that the end of module tests can be retaken if you don’t pass the first time around.
A Level 5 TEFL Scholarship has the difficulty level of the first year of university and requires more commitment and effort to pass. The essay style questions on a Level 5 Scholarship will be reassessed if the answers do not meet the required standard.

WHAT’S THE AGE RESTRICTION TO TAKE TEFL SCHOLARSHIP?
The minimum age to take a TEFL Scholarship is 18 years old. However, employers all over the globe will often seek candidates who are aged 21+. This happens in cases where they also require a degree level education as part of the job requirements or at least so that the candidates have had time to gain some life experience in professional settings.
That said, some employers are open to hiring younger teachers for kindergarten roles and summer camp positions.
AM I TOO OLD TO TEACH ENGLISH ABROAD?
There are no strict age limits for teaching English abroad. However, keep in mind that you will be under employment rules of the country in which you plan to teach – not your home country.
For example, the local labor laws in China would see a worker retire much sooner than within an EU country. The cultural factors will influence recruitment preferences of employers.
DO I NEED TO SPEAK ANOTHER LANGUAGE TO TEACH ENGLISH ABROAD?
You do not need to speak a foreign language to get hired in TEFL. In fact, many employers will prefer if you do not speak the local language as it prevents you from using it in the classroom. Remember, your goal is only to speak English to students. And as much as possible, we restrict participants and students from speaking other languages.
Here’s a great tip for you: Always remember to use common and everyday phrases in communicating with other people. In that way, your new found community will appreciate your effort to localize with them. In some Spanish speaking countries where English is less commonly known, a basic understanding of the language will be valuable in your social life.
