Hello.Greetings from Macedonia. I was wondering if anyone can give me some information on where to search and how to find Job applications to work abroad as a teacher of English?
I have had 10 year experience , working both in elementary/primary schools and teaching at a university. I have a B.A degree in English language and litarature.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi,

For New Zealand, jobs are advertised in online publications such as www.seek.co.nz as well as in the major newspapers.

To teach English in primary and secondary schools in New Zealand, you need the right to work here as well as a recognised qualification. For teachers from overseas, gaining the right to work in NZ essentially means immigrating. There's information about the skilled migrant scheme on the NZ Immigration website. Overseas teaching qualifications have to be assessed by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). There is information about this on their website, as well as on the NZ Immigration site. Generally speaking, people with overseas teaching qualifications find that they need to take extra papers in New Zealand in order to have their qualifications endorsed. Having qualified, teachers will find that the job market in New Zealand is relatively tight right now - most vacancies attract a number of qualified local candidates.

There are also something like 80 - 100 private language schools (or private schools that teach ESOL alongside some other subjects), about 50 of which are in Auckland. Expected qualifications vary, but the most common ones are diplomas from NZ universities and Cambridge CELTA / DELTA. As with mainstream education, the jobs situation in the ESOL sector is currently a bit tight - again, most vacancies attract a number of well-qualified local candidates.
