How to Get Started Teaching English in Italy PDF Print E-mail

In order to teach English in Italy, consider investing in a TEFL/TESL certificate, or CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults). There are several ways to earn a certificate to teach English in your native country, overseas or even online. Some programs and schools in other countries only want native English-speaking teachers who are certified to teach the English language, and other schools or teaching jobs require a bachelor's degree. Read the requirements of the job that interests you to under stand what’s expected before you invest in a TEFL certification program. You can also earn your certificate online at a training conference, or at a college or university.

Subscribe to TESL job board feeds and forums for job leads teaching English in Italy.

Look first at online ESL job boards where new jobs are posted regularly. You can also look at forums to ask about other teachers' experiences in Italy, or even find out about the reputation of a certain school or program you are considering via TEFL blacklist.com. Some TEFL training programs offer job placement assistance and advice.

Look in pagine gialle.it for English language schools. You will find small language schools or programs in Italy. Some small schools may just be listed in the Yellow Pages, and some may not advertise on large TEFL job boards. These schools may just look for teachers who have resumes posted on ESL job websites.

Kevin Revolinksi, a former ESL teacher in Italy, says that the best time to apply for jobs in Italy is between February and March. English language programs usually start in September/October and run through May/June, though there are summer language camps. Revolinski goes on to explain that, "British Institutes might be a two-birds-with-one-stone solution. They sometimes offer a program that consists of two months of distance learning (buying a few books and completing readings and assignments) and then two weeks of intensive training in Italy. Upon successful completion of the course, you are guaranteed a teaching job in one of their Italian schools for at least nine months starting in October."
