Could anyone please enlighten me on job prospects with a TESOL postgrad. qualification? I'm referring to jobs in both the school and adult education sector. A friend who works in a community house doing ESL teaching said the sector has not been doing too well recently. If I do look at the teaching ESL-adult groups, I'd look at specializing in IELTS or so. Does anyone have any info please? Thanks a lot!

Hi. I'm a TESOL specialist. I have postgrad degrees in TESOL, an MA and I'm doing my phd in an IELTS related area (I'm an IELTS tester). Not sure where you are located. I'm in Southern QLD and the market is bad. I work at a university and student numbers are the lowest they have been in years but the dollar is weakening and student numbers are seasonal so it should pick up a bit. There is work around at various places but it is mostly casual and very unstable. If you are after job security this is not the industry. It is also a pretty dirty industry in my area. Lots of office politics and bad mouthing. I'm starting in academia but I do enjoy the actual teaching in ESL. If you want to ask me more specific questions send me a pm.
