Travel the world in 2018 with a CELTA/TEFL qualification

Thu, Jan 11, 2018

We often hear people say that life is not a rehearsal, so if you are interested in doing some travelling, changing career, taking early retirement, or learning about other cultures, now is the time. One of the best ways to see the world while at the same time earn some money is by teaching English. "As a teacher of English abroad, you can immediately immerse yourself in a culture and get to know the local people without having to speak the language of that culture," says Mary Grennan, director of International House Galway. "Of course, you will have the opportunity to learn the language too while you’re there, which is wonderful. You can also teach English here in Ireland in a language school or even in your own home — it’s a great cultural education, and great fun too."

Let 2018 be your year — training opportunities for the unemployed

Thu, Jan 11, 2018

The problem with being out of work for a significant period of time is that it hacks away at your self-confidence. The longer we leave taking that step forward, the more difficult it becomes, and we lose our sense of self. At other times it is just not possible. Eldercare, childcare, family commitments, and illness can get in the way or become a noble priority. Janet Yellen, the popular American economist, believed that long-term unemployment can make any worker progressively less employable, even after the economy strengthens. Explaining gaps on a CV is always a discussion point in career coaching. If the time has come when you can concentrate on yourself, there is one facility in Galway among others that can offer a stepping stone.
