ESL jobs in Toronto, Canada
Hello, how are you? I'm planning to move to Toronto to look for work in teaching ESL. I'd like to know some info about the good schools to work for, as well as not-so-good ones to avoid.
I'm looking for a school with a well established curriculum to follow with materials they provide for you... I'm still learning about teaching ESL so I'm hoping to work in a more structured environment.
I was wondering too if it's possible to find work in private schools without having a TESL Ontario certificate. I've taken an accredited course (with practicum and all that), and I have teaching experience abroad, but I'm concerned that not having applied for the certificate will handicap me (and I've just missed the recent deadline for application!).
Thanks so much for your time,

Most private language schools SHOULD NOT require TESL Ontario-approved certificates. At most (if they are members of CAPLS, for example), they will require TESL Canada-approved or equivalent credentials and it sounds like you have that.

Thanks GoTeacher. I just had my first day of the TEFL course in BC, and the teacher told me that Ontario is special. Pretty disappointed. But at least I can get TESL Canada certification. Do you have any schools that you know of that hire teachers with TESL Canada, overseas experience ( 6 years)? Anything you know would be SO MUCH appreciated! ....

Sorry for the delay in replying? How are you making out with your job search? Ontario is "special" in the most euphemistic sense of the word. The are out-of-whack with the rest of the private language school industry in the country. While I am all for comprehensive teacher training and raising the bar when it comes to TESOL certificate benchmarks, TESL Ontario's approach seems exclusive, elitest and counter-productive. ....

Hello, thanks so much for your response. I'm still a little unclear though. Actually I don't have any certification at all (for TESL Canada or Ontario). What I do have is a diploma from the school where I studied TESL. I'm now eligible to apply for TESL Canada/Ontario certification (to be a card-carrying member, kind of thing). I could do that but it's a) costly and b) I'll have to wait for a while until the next application. I know government-sp....
