Teach Away Launches Scholarship to Empower English Language Teachers

Teach Away, the industry leader in international teacher placement, has launched its first TEFL Scholarship Program, according to a recent press release. This initiative aims to provide aspiring teachers with the essential skills and training required to teach English abroad or online. The TEFL Scholarship Program is designed to support an aspiring teacher who is unable to participate due to financial limitations. The scholarship will cover the expenses of the selected candidate’s enrollment in the 120-hour online TEFL course, which has been created in partnership with Teach Away and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto.

“Students are facing financial difficulty more than ever before. Teaching English [abroad or online] is a great way to secure a steady income while doing very fulfilling work,” says Rene Frey, president of Teach Away.

Becoming a certified TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher opens up your career to endless job opportunities, as the global need for English-speaking teachers continues to rise. High demand means getting qualified to teach is now more accessible than ever, making teaching an ideal job for new grads and career changers alike.

TEFL grads go on to teach all around the world, from Japan and South Korea to the UAE, Spain, and beyond. A TEFL scholarship will provide the financial assistance needed to help one lucky recipient pursue their dream of living and teaching abroad.

TEFL Certificate issued by OISE at the University of Toronto is globally recognized and increases aspiring teachers’ chances of securing their dream teaching job abroad. OISE is a top-tier institution in educational research and teacher training, with a particular focus on foreign language instruction.
