    Good course for graduate wishing to remain in UK

    Hi all. I am sure that this has been answered already but I can't find any information on it. I graduated many years ago, then worked in research and writing for many years. My children are now both at school and I feel that teaching English to speakers of other languages would be a great career change for me - but I'd like to remain in the UK (Cardiff based). However, very confused as to what sort of course I should choose to do, and which would be best recognised in the UK. So..any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks (PS couldn't work out how to put paragraphs in here - sorry!)

    The answer rather depends on what sort of career you want.

    I assume that you will not want to teach young people in state schools - help to non-native-speakers at such schools in the UK is usually given by teachers in those schools who mainly teach other things.

    If you wish to teach in private language schools, you will find it difficult to gain employment without the Cambridge CELTA or Trinity College's CertTESOL.

    If you wish to teach in adult education centres then a City and Guilds teaching certificate is an asset.

    If you are thinking of teaching in a university then an MA in TEFL/TESOL/Applied linguistics is essential these days.
