On reflection, there are a lot of bulgarians/russians who can speak very good english, and think they can automatically call themselves `teachers`
however what they dont realise is what they actually need in order to gain employment.
My Krassimira for example had been a teacher for many years in BG prior to moving to the uk, since then she has gained, ESOL..CELTA..EMA..QTS..is on a very high salary in the uk, and has been offered placements in various countries including Japan, and UAE with very tempting salaries.
It saddens her to read of the poor salaries on offer in her native country, but it will not make a difference when she seeks employment in BG, for she will be retired, and also on a final salary pension,plus a lump sum of £30.000, and a government pension from the uk, which will make BG salary look like childs pocket money.
She intends to work in bg, not for the money obviously, but merely to give her something to occupy herself with, and also for the love of teaching, for which she has excellent skills and qualifications.
So to anybody looking for work as a teacher, especially from the uk, i would advise them to get as many qualifications as they can, which is the same as for any kind of work or job.
