This program consists of 4 weeks TEFL training, which will be a mixture of daytime study and some evening work and assignments. TEFL trainers will make sure you have everything you need to become a confident teacher of English (TEFL) in Italy.
Once qualified, the world is yours and you can use your TEFL certificate in other countries - there is no expiry date to the TEFL certificate. The TEFL certificate is externally accredited and accepted worldwide.
After gaining skills, making friends in this period is what it is all about. Spending so much time each day around the same people who are in the same situation means friendships solidify quickly. Everyone wants to support each other. It's one of the great benefits of starting your journey teaching abroad in this way.
During the TEFL training period, we give you all the tools, resources and contacts you need to secure a paid teaching job. Most jobs are secured within a few weeks after the course, and sometimes even shorter than that. A great benefit is to have our experienced in-country TEFL team at your disposal recommending good places to work, and where to avoid applying for jobs.
In Italy, most teaching jobs are in language centers, so typically you will be teaching adults, with some younger classes, depending on the employer. It's also common to travel to corporate locations and teach company staff English, as well as have private students to tutor.
Contract lengths are for around 6 months or more. Salaries vary, but are around €1200 - 1450 Euro per month. Living costs come to around €1100 to €1300 Euro per month, so you'll be able to live comfortably but there won't be a huge opportunity to save money each month.
Anyone can come on this course and teach English in Italy. In terms of the job placement services, through our experience we know those who are native English speaking and who hold a bachelors degree (in any subject) secure jobs within 30 days after the end of the training - and in most cases this is shorter.
Those who are not native English speaking or do not hold a bachelors degree can also attend this course and for job placement we advise them to be as flexible as possible as to salary and location. Native English speaking teachers are preferred in Italy, but many employers will accept non-native English speakers as long as they are fluent in English. Non-native English speakers may have to wait a little longer to get a job in their desired location.
Accommodation costs during training are around 600 USD (€500 Euro) for 4 weeks and you'll be staying in a shared apartment with other trainees.
After training and when you are in your teaching job, accommodation is cheaper, at around 475 US dollars (€400 Euro). Doing the course with others helps you to make friends and it's common to share accommodation with those friends afterwards when you start your teaching jobs.
The full price of the this program in 2018 is 1305 Euros. This gives you a 4-week long, fully accredited TEFL training certificate in Florence, meaning you can teach English and get paid anywhere in the world, as well as job assistance from our team in Florence and worldwide lifetime job seeking assistance from TEFL Heaven.
