Seeking teaching work, no license?

Seeking teaching work, no license?

Postby TeacherS » 01 Jul 2016, 20:40

I am just beginning my job search last month for what I assume will be an August start and arrival.
One opening I applied to is a private, K-12 school, which would be ideal since I prefer working day hours (I hate getting old).

Thing is I do not hold a proper teaching license. Is this legal? Are exceptions possible?

(Have taught for 3 years, BA'd in non-Edu, NES from US, have part of MEdT finished but didn't complete)

You will need something to get the work permit to work at a private school. A lot of schools used to get a work permit at a buxiban and then just have you work at the school but apparently that is less common today. Anyway, you will need something, so I suggest you get a substitute teaching license and you'll have a chance. Not all of them always work, but it's your best shot if you want to be able to legally work at this job in a month.

I just want to add, the reason for that is probably the fact that it's very illegal. ("Very" as in fine + deportation for the foreigner, fine + potential imprisonment for the employer and the agent.)
