Why obtain your TEFL certification in Toulouse?
A vibrant, beautiful, and fast-growing city, Toulouse has the bohemian attitude of nearby Barcelona set amongst the rolling countryside and vineyards of Southwestern France. This charming place is characterized by a combination of old and new; ancient and unique architecture, modern aerospace industry, and a world-renowned university.
Working in Toulouse: Our Job Guidance Service
Toulouse is one of France’s fastest growing cities, and has been experiencing a “TEFL boom”. In addition to over 30 language schools in the area, there are abundant freelancing opportunities for English teachers. It is typical for teachers to have a contract with a language school and work as a freelancer (“auto-entrepreneur”) at the same time. Our TEFL centre in Toulouse will help, not just with interviewing and finding a job, but also with all the necessary steps to become established as a freelancer.
For Americans and other non-EU citizens finding work can be more difficult. To better accommodate trainees that are not EU citizens TEFL Toulouse has developed a homestay programme with local families.
This free services places graduates with families who are happy to feed and house them in exchange for some hours of English lessons daily Monday to Friday. The trainee will finalise the details of their homestay directly with the family, but typically the arrangement is to live with and teach the family for two months after the course.
The homestay program provides a smooth transition into teaching after finishing the course, and is a great option for trainees without work visas that would like to remain in Toulouse for a few months while getting teaching experience.
