Becoming a full time member of the teaching team is tough and most teachers start on hourly paid contracts.

2011 is fast approaching, and the beginning of the year will be the best time to apply for London based TEFL Jobs.

As well as looking at CVs, Directors of Study will want to interview candidates, take up references and verify degree and teaching certificates. Additionally it is becoming more common for language schools to carry out CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) checks on teachers, particularly if they are going to be working with young learners. This process can take a number of weeks to complete.
