Looking for a Recession-Proof Career? Teach Away Launches Scholarship to Empower English Language Teachers

In recent years turbulent times around the world have hit close to home for many of us and made us rethink many aspects of our daily lives – including our careers.

Living through the pandemic, the cost-of-living crisis, and an impending economic downturn led to a newly forming economic landscape. Along with the push for better working conditions that spurred the Great Resignation, many people are also looking for more job security.

Recession-proof careers promise consistent work and reliable income, even in uncertain economic conditions. But they don’t have to mean a dull career. In fact, far from it, many ‘reliable’ jobs come with opportunities for continuous learning, career growth, and global travel.

Teaching happens to be one of the best recession-proof jobs for 2023.

Becoming a certified TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher opens up your career to endless job opportunities, as the global need for English-speaking teachers continues to rise.

High demand means getting qualified to teach is now more accessible than ever, making teaching an ideal job for new grads and career changers alike.

Teach Away, the industry leader in international teacher placement, has launched its first TEFL Scholarship Program. This initiative aims to provide aspiring teachers with the essential skills and training required to teach English abroad or online. The TEFL Scholarship Program is designed to support an aspiring teacher who is unable to participate due to financial limitations. The scholarship will cover the expenses of the selected candidate’s enrollment in the 120-hour online TEFL course, which has been created in partnership with Teach Away and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto.

“Students are facing financial difficulty more than ever before. Teaching English [abroad or online] is a great way to secure a steady income while doing very fulfilling work,” says Rene Frey, president of Teach Away.

TEFL grads go on to teach all around the world, from Japan and South Korea to the UAE, Spain, and beyond. A TEFL scholarship will provide the financial assistance needed to help one lucky recipient pursue their dream of living and teaching abroad.

A TEFL Certificate issued by OISE at the University of Toronto is globally recognized and increases aspiring teachers’ chances of securing their dream teaching job abroad. OISE is a top-tier institution in educational research and teacher training, with a particular focus on foreign language instruction. Its distinguished faculty includes world-renowned policymakers and school specialists, and the TEFL certification program was developed by highly respected instructors.

Teach Away is committed to making a difference in the lives of those who are passionate about education and empowering students. The TEFL Scholarship Program is an important step towards achieving this goal.

Since 2003, Teach Away has connected reputable international schools with great teachers through its recruitment platform and helped train teachers with high-quality internationally recognized professional development programs such as its TEFL courses.

The scholarship deadline is April 3, 2023, visit to find out how to apply! https://www.teachaway.com/tefl-certification#tefl-scholarships
