What can you do with your CIEE TEFL Certification?

Teaching English as a foreign language is a life changing experience. Not just for you, but for the people who will grow under your tutelage as well. Giving someone the gift of language is a transcendent experience, and one made all the more rewarding when you immerse yourself in a foreign culture to do it. 

If this sounds like the opportunity you have been looking for, here are a few ways to make it happen:

​CIEE TEFL Placement Assistance

CIEE TEFL has partners in three different countries across the world. These partners are looking for newly TEFL certified teachers to help meet the demand for English education in their communities.  CIEE TEFL Placement Assistance is available to current students and alumni of a CIEE TEFL course.

Once submitted, CIEE TEFL will send your application straight to our partner. No additional application paperwork or fees required. Once accepted, you will work directly with your school to organize your travel and work details. CIEE TEFL placement assistance is ideal for independent travelers and does not include predeparture or in country support.

CIEE Teach Abroad

Teaching abroad with a program provider will give you all the support you’ll need when heading overseas. With all this support comes a price tag, so don’t be surprised when you see program fees attached to their opportunities. There are a number of providers out there, but what can we say? We’re biased - and for good reason. For starters: 

  • CIEE offers paid teaching positions to university graduates looking to share their language and culture all over the world 
  • CIEE Teach Abroad will help get you settled in another country with an orientation upon arrival, pre-departure assistance, 24/7 in-country support, and international insurance (to name a few) 
  • They offer programs in a variety of locations 
  • 70 years of being in business means they are thoroughly entrenched around the world, with a network of support at your disposal
