    We do not accept any student deliveries. Students are advised to have their mail delivered to their accommodation.

  • What is the TEFL job market in Cape Town like?


    Although the number of English language institutions has grown over the last few years, the job market remains moderate in Cape Town and the salaries that teachers receive are quite low. Our graduates often find jobs overseas once they have completed the course. During the waiting period of finding a job the graduated student can do volunteering work at the school they studied at or elsewhere. There are, however, few people who get lucky when applying for jobs in Cape Town, so it’s always worth a shot.

  • When do I start looking for work in Cape Town? Where do I start?


    It is advised to start sending out resumes and researching the job market within the last week of the course, although it is best to take your time and get as much information as possible to give you a broader perspective of what is available to you and what you should expect in terms of salaries, working conditions etc.

    Salaries in Cape Town range between R8000 – R12000 per month depending on the type of school or company you end up working for.

  • Do most schools provide accommodation for their teachers?


    No they do not, but we can assist you in finding accommodation to suit your needs.

  • How many TEFL graduates find work in Cape Town?


    The simple answer is not many. This is due to the poor job market here. Most people travel to Cape Town to study and explore the city at the same time before looking for work overseas.

  • Do schools provide health insurance?


    No, they do not. It is best to get insurance in your country before traveling to a foreign country.

  • Do schools provide work permits?


    No, they do not, but they can help you extend your visa/permit.
