Prague TEFL Job Workshop
If you wish to work in the Czech Republic, there is a TEFL Job Workshop at the end of the course. During the TEFL Job Workshop, Prague English language schools offer brief presentations about their school. They provide information including details of teaching hours, the syllabus, teaching resources, salary, and other related benefits. This gives you the chance to ask questions in advance, arrange interviews with a few schools, and meet potential employers face-to-face. Positions are available in different parts of the Czech Republic. You can work in the larger cities or in some of the smaller towns. Working outside of Prague is a benefit, as you can engage yourself in the culture more and learn the language much faster, if you are interested.
In addition to the TEFL course and TEFL job guidance, we provide housing assistance for those planning on staying in Prague. We can put you in touch with numerous real estate agents and point you in the right direction on where to find available housing. This includes website links for housing and Prague Facebook groups. We also post current offers for apartments and rooms for rent.
With a full time schedule, you can expect to make about 19,000kc/month to 21,000kc/month after tax. That will cover your living expenses and give you extra money for entertainment and light travel. Again, you’ll have enough time to pick up some extra private teaching hours or jobs teaching online and boost your earnings to 21,000 Kc +. We know teachers making 40,000 Kc. A lot of it depends on you and how ambitious and organized you are. You can live a comfortable lifestyle on a full-time teaching salary. The living expenses in Prague are significantly lower than North America and Western Europe. Should you decide to stay here after the course, you can find a private room in a furnished and shared apartment for around 9000 Kc to 12500 Kc/month. The majority of teachers in Prague choose to share an apartment while teaching in order to cut back on their living expenses. Should you choose to rent a private studio or one bedroom flat you can find something for around 10,500 Kc to 15,000 Kc, depending on your preferences, location, size, furnishings, etc.
