Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I enjoy working with young people and getting them excited to learn something which will be beneficial to them in the future, I have found it really rewarding in the past to feel like I have had an impact on young people’s lives. Alongside this, I am fascinated by culture and how life varies around the world – an interest I have pursued in an Anthropology undergraduate degree. I have loved living in different countries in the past and so teaching overseas would combine my interests in travel and working with young people. I will graduate in May this year and am looking forward to an exciting new experience where I can really see the world and do something which I think is worthwhile, and teaching overseas seems to tick all the boxes.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have extensive experience working with young people in paid teaching roles, leading outdoor activities, and providing mental health counselling to under-18s. This is something I have thoroughly enjoyed and have become competent in. I also hold a 150-hour TEFL Online Master Course and am a native English speaker.
