    Default First day on the forum

    Hello all,

    My name is Scott and today is my first time using the forum.

    I decided that I really want to TEFL this weekend after a long career with British Airways as long haul crew.

    I have an interview on Tuesday for a position in China.

    I dont have a degree or any other relevant qualifications so as you can imagine, I feel a little un-armed.

    I would love to hear from people that have started in my position and also any advice about my new career.

    Thankyou.

    Scott.

    Try to check the school out carefully first. Try searching for the name of the school + blacklist, which might bring up any complaints about it. If there are a number of complaints, especially with repeats of the same problems, it might be a place to avoid. If you want to do the job for any period of time, then get qualified- without qualifications, your choices are restricted and you are more likely to find yourself working for one of the sharks.
