Trip overview

Remote work is all the rage these days.

The freedom to work from anywhere – exploring new countries and meeting interesting people while you fund your lifestyle from your laptop. 

Sounds like a dream, right? 

The bad news is that a lot of people want this dream.

So the competition for remote jobs is fierce. Which makes achieving the digital nomad dream difficult, time-consuming and filled with uncertainty…until now. 

After this program you’ll walk away as a qualified TESOL teacher – making you employable all over the world. 

We’ll even hook you up with your first remote teaching job match! 

Have we got your attention now? Good. Because when you go with Global, you get: 

  • Guaranteed job match. Once you’ve passed your online TESOL, we’ll go out and find you your initial remote teaching contract, so you can go from working onsite to working wherever ASAP! 
  • 6 months additional job finding support. For 6 whole months after you've completed your course, you’ll get all the help you need securing as many teaching positions as you want.
  • Optional in-person teaching placement. We can even find you an in-person teaching position at an additional cost in one of the following countries – Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Myanmar, Vietnam, Costa Rica, or Spain. 
  • Relocation support. Do you want to move to be a nomad teacher abroad? We can help and support in relocating to live and teach online in 8 different countries around the world, for an additional cost.

The life of a remote TESOL teacher might just be the ultimate way to live and work around the world on your own terms. 

You’ll have the freedom and means to live in any country for as long as your visa allows.

Trip details

Now, this is totally different to the life of most TESOL teachers around the world. They mostly work on site, with a fixed schedule of in-person classes. 

As a remote teacher, your life will be much more flexible. 

First – the most obvious. You’ll be able to work from anywhere with a fast WiFi connection – which is pretty much anywhere in the world. 

Second – you won’t have a fixed 9-5 schedule to stick to 5 days a week. The majority (80%) of remote English teacher jobs are part-time with a flexible schedule. 

This means you can choose how much you want to work. You can even have multiple part-time contracts at the same time. 

What does this mean for you? Let’s take a quick stroll through the life of future-you….

You’re wrapping up a summer of adventure travelling across Europe. 

Life’s been good – with one teaching contract keeping your bank account ticking over, but leaving you with plenty of free time to explore. 

Now that summer’s over, it’s time to rack up a few more teaching contracts for winter. You’re gonna put your head down for the cold months – working hard and saving hard so that when the time comes, you can scale down your teaching commitments and hit the open road to spend that hard-earned cash. 

This is your ticket to freedom in 3 forms: 

  • Time freedom
  • Income freedom 
  • Location freedom 

When you book with Global, you book with the best. You get the full experience for a fraction of the hassle

Our team will help you with the essentials you need to start your new journey with a bang! Including all your courses and helping you land your first remote teaching job.

Qualification & Requirements

To qualify for this trip you must have:

  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Come from the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Australia, or South Africa 
  • Clear, neutral accent. Strong accents will need a pre-screening
  • Between ages of 21-40. Applicants outside of this range need to go through pre-screening
  • No criminal background
  • Tattoos must be covered
  • It’s recommended that your computer has at least 2.3ghz CPU / 4GB RAM. The recommended internet speed is at least 30mbs download/20mbs upload
  • Teachers need to be able to work from a quiet location (no cafes, outside, etc) that has good lighting and a blank white background

Trip itinerary

Typical Day

7:30 AM: Review lesson plans, materials, and any student assignments for the day. 8:00 AM: Start the first online English lesson of the day 10:00 AM: Provide feedback on students' assignments and assessments from previous lessons. 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM: Free time for exploration and adventures 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM: Work on lesson plans 6:00 PM – 10PM: Teach more lessons. It’s important to remember that your actual schedule may vary significantly – this is just a loose example of how your life may look. You have the freedom to choose your regular schedule. The more hours you have available, the more lessons you’re likely to have. Things like the number of students, the types of lessons (one-on-one or group), and time zones will affect your schedule every day so keep this in mind.  We’ll be in touch with you throughout. If you ever need advice or support our team is available to answer your questions. And our 24/7 emergency support line will help with urgent matters.  Don’t go alone. Go with Global.

Why Teach

The main purpose of this trip is to get your TESOL qualification so you can teach English as a foreign language anywhere in the world

You’ll do your 4-week TESOL course online from anywhere with a WiFi connection. 

As tourism grows and globalisation makes the world smaller, English continues to be the ‘global language’ for mutual communication. 

Which means that people who live in non-English speaking countries could open up a world of opportunities for themselves and their communities by learning to speak English.

As a remote English teacher, you’ll be providing English lessons to a wider range of people than only school children. You’ll most likely be hired by a private institution or language school to teach English to people who are beyond school age. 

As a remote TESOL teacher, you’ll have the flexibility to work from anywhere in the world while helping improve their own lives by learning to speak English.

Are flights & insurance included?

While we would love to include flights and insurance in our trip packages, it is not feasible to have a fixed price due to the diverse destinations, trip durations, and individual coverage needs of our travellers from around the globe. However, once you register for the trip, we will assign you a dedicated Travel Concierge. They will work closely with you to arrange the ideal flights and insurance tailored to your specific adventure. Rest assured, our team is here to ensure you have a smooth and hassle-free travel experience from start to finish!

Why should I book now?

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global. This is where you will find exclusive Marketplace Deals, a unique social network to connect you with other like-minded Global Travellers, access to our Academy with an ever-growing range of skills & languages, and so much more. Think all of your favourite apps merged into one, but like, better? Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together! But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join. And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

Can I bring my pet along?

At Global Work & Travel, we share a deep love for animals and fully understand the special bond you have with your pet. We recognise the challenges of embarking on a trip without them. Due to travel restrictions, requirements, and limited pet-friendly accommodations among our host organisations, we regretfully cannot facilitate their inclusion in the journey. However, many of our customers choose to entrust their pets to a family member or friend, embark on their adventure, and return home to wagging tails and furry cuddles.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

We know that life can get in the way of travel, so all our trips come with a great deal of flexibility. In most cases, if you cannot travel on your selected date, you can place your trip on hold to deal with whatever is holding you back, and continue in the future without incurring any penalty. You may also have the option of transferring to an entirely different trip and destination as well, or even transferring your trip to a friend or family member. In the event that you need to outright cancel your trip, if you give us 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put toward any other trip that we offer, including tours through third-party providers, as well as holidays through DealsAway.com, and is valid for 2 years from date of issue. As international travel can be complex, your options are based on the progress of your trip organisation and our support team can assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
