TravelBud’s GoOverseas Community Choice Award: Best TEFL with Job Placement

on March 19, 2020

It’s always great to see hard work pay off. That’s why everyone here on Team TravelBud was over the moon when we found out that we won a GoOverseas Community Choice Award for the Best 2019 TEFL Course with Job Assistance! We would like to thank our incredible alumni for all of the wonderful TravelBud reviews, as well as the teams that make everything we do here at TravelBud possible!

We know you’ve got options, but here’s why our programs are the best. 

When it comes to picking a program for your teaching abroad adventure, there are a lot of things to take into account. Since everyone on our team has taught abroad before, we’ve made sure to cover all the bases we feel necessary for a successful beginning to your Teach Abroad journey. Our programs include:

Our Cultural Orientation activities, like this farm trip and cooking class in Vietnam, prepare teachers to settle in to the country they’ll be teaching in.

We guarantee placement at one of our vetted partner schools. 

Once you’re accepted into a TravelBud program, that’s us saying with 100% certainty that we can find you a job in one of our high-quality partner schools.

While other programs may offer employment “assistance,” we promise that you’ll be placed at one of our partner schools upon completion of your TEFL/TESOL course. Our application process allows us to marry high-quality teachers with high-quality schools.

With our Guaranteed Job Placement, you’ll be placed at a school that’s been vetted extensively against high standards.

Our Placements Teams are ready to match you to the perfect teaching job.

At TravelBud, we have experienced Placements Teams in every country that we offer programs in.

Upon enrolling in the program, the placements team will reach out to you to begin finding out your placement preferences. They’ll take into account what size town you’d like to be placed in, region preferences, and even preferred age groups that you would like to teach.

If you have previous teaching experience, they’ll also discuss that with you to make sure that’s taken into consideration when matching you to a placement. By the time you finish your in-class TEFL/TESOL course, you know exactly which of our vetted partner schools that you will be teaching at!

Already have a travel buddy? We can facilitate partner and group placements, in most cases!

We only work with schools that are high-quality–just like our teachers. 

When it comes to researching jobs for teaching abroad, you may quickly realize that experiences can be anywhere from wonderful to terrible. Horror stories of teachers not being paid on time, being treated poorly, or being overworked fill ESL teaching forums.

TravelBud vets all of our partner schools extensively, and against very strict criteria, so that you can rest assured that you’ll be placed at an excellent school.

We make sure our teachers are the best of the best, so why wouldn’t we ensure that our partner schools are too?

The GoOverseas Community has spoken, but now it’s time for you to find out for yourself just how wonderful our Paid Teaching programs with Guaranteed Job Placement are! Submit an inquiry today and get your Teach Abroad journey started with TravelBud!
