Default What is a TEFL/CELTA certificate worth?

Hi,

I am currently working in accounting and thinking of a career change, I would like to start teaching and seriously want to move abroad.

I am thinking of teaching english in Thailand as a starting point and hence competing a 4week TEFL/CELTA course, is it worth me doing one of these courses in Thailand or should I do a PGCE in the UK before I leave?

Does anyone know what the teaching prospects and pay are like in Dubai?

Any advice/guidance would be fab.

Thanks!

I'm definitely not an authority on this, but as nodoby replied.. From what I heard (friends who used to go to Thailand, and SE Asia in general, quite a lot), to make a living just by teaching English is going to be pretty tough, as you'll find a lot of competition there, especially in touristy spots. Best of luck
