Italy TEFL Jobs in Italy

Teach and Travel in Italy

The current job opportunities in Italy for TEFL teachers are numerous. In some cities there are more jobs than teachers, while in other parts of the country the prospects are still good. In virtually every city in Italy a qualified TEFL teacher will be able to find a teaching position. Many teachers really enjoy the lifestyle that Italy offers even if the salaries are fairly low in relation to the cost of living. As Italy is an EU country work prospects favor British and Irish citizens, though there are literally thousands of Americans teaching there too.

Tesol Certificate, or equivalent, is required. Teachers need to have a valid EU passport and a valid driving license.

Our school is wonderfully located. It is very close to cities like Vicenza, Verona and above all Venice.
