Opportunities For Non-Native English Speaking Teachers

Maybe you’ve got a diploma or degree and you can speak English fluently. How can you put your English-speaking skills to good use? Maybe you’d like to travel and explore the possibilities of working in a different country, or maybe you just want to have flexible hours and work around your personal schedule.

Easier said than done!

As you may know, I specialize in teaching English as a Second Language through theatre in Florence, Italy, and many of my drama students are at University or have just finished higher education. I’m always curious to find out what plans and aspirations they have for the future, and when I ask, they all look slightly despondent, resigned to the fact that, in Italy, the percentage of young unemployed is around 40%, and the possibility of finding their dream job is unrealistic.

To give an example, one of my students who just graduated with a top degree in architecture is working as a life guard, because he found it impossible to find a paid job in an architect’s studio. Unbelievable!

Every day, I see more young people looking for alternative ways of making a living, because they know, if they wait to be offered a job, they may wait a long time.

The surprising thing is that many of my students, like you, perhaps, speak fluent English but are unaware of the huge possibilities open to non-native English speakers.

And when I ask, “Have you ever thought of becoming a children’s English Theatre Teacher, like me?” Their mouths drop and heads shake and the answer is, “No, I’m not qualified. I’ve never taught children. I wouldn’t know where to start.”

But the solution is simple and painless – what if I teach you all there is to know?

Teaching children English through Theatre opens a multitude of work opportunities and can be fitted to suit your personal needs, whether you’re a student, unemployed, stay at home mum, part-time teacher etc. How you use your freshly learned skills is up to you; here are a few suggestions:

  • Organise your own after school English theatre language courses
  • Organise your own English theatre Summer Camps
  • Offer extracurricular English Theatre courses to schools, playgroups, theatre companies, culture associations, or children’s groups
  • Work privately from home or offer courses in other people’s homes
  • Organise English theatre birthday parties and events
  • Offer English theatre courses to hotels, campsites, recreational centres, or cruise ships

Don’t wait for your dream job to come knocking – create your future for yourself. Find out more about our teacher training courses and turn your English knowledge into opportunities
