Guaranteed Job Support
Other TESOL course providers always tout that there’s a guaranteed job that’s waiting at the end of their course.
What they don’t say is that these ‘for sure’ jobs are typically at mediocre schools, paying below market wages with bad working conditions and often in remote locations. That’s why there’s jobs at these schools - many other teachers have left.
If you want any teaching job, anyone can offer that.
The Best Jobs Aren't Guaranteed
In many places throughout the world, the demand for teachers is so high that making guarantees isn't really needed. China alone needs more English teachers - some 400 million - than there are native speakers of the language.
And demand in Thailand has never been higher.
Vantage has written extensively on the global demand there is for English classes and the instructors who will teach them.
