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 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.
