work in cartagena as a tefl trainer

Everyone dreams of getting a job by the beautiful Caribbean, exploiting their knowledge of English to pay the rent while sipping Piña Coladas in a hammock under a beach palm on the weekends. For some, this is a reality. English teaching jobs are relatively easy to find, if English is your native tongue, and you have a TEFL certificate. The government has recently legislated that all university graduates must have studied some formal English lessons.

In this part of the world, American English is preferred; though the good news for teachers is that the schools are not really in a position to be too selective. Colombia’s infamous past keeps many prospective teachers away, and teachers of many nationalities are hired. English-teaching qualifications are obviously an advantage. What is also necessary is a good amount of patience to get the visa and a good contract.

The easiest and fastest place to find a teaching job is in one of the many small independent colleges or “English Clubs” that are found in all the major suburbs of Cartagena. Their rates of pay are low, and visa help is minimal or non-existent. Some teachers simply work until their 3-month tourist visa expires, and then move on to a neighboring country. Contracts with these types of schools are rare.

Private lessons are easy to set up, though cancellations are common as is non-payment of tuition. It’s important to protect yourself by working smartly in terms of collecting your pay. Rates go up to $15 an hour.
Primary, secondary and tertiary education institutes pay the best and actively recruit at job fairs overseas. Contract conditions may vary however, and you are well advised to check them before you sign your contract. Many have a clause which allows the school to vary the hours taught (i.e., upwards). Some even specify after-school and Saturday lessons. Some schools pay an hourly rate for after-school work or extra hours, others do not. Flights home, excess baggage and housing allowances, paid vacation, contract completion bonus and weekly teaching hours are all negotiable.

Colombian schools hire year round. There is no special time of the year. The only time when schools would not hire you is between Christmas and New Year.

One of the main benefits of living in Colombia is the low cost of living. And what’s more, it’s a low cost of living in a country that offers many of the first-world amenities and infrastructure that you’d expect in a much more expensive location. In other words, Colombia’s a good value from the perspective of an expat or second home buyer. If you move to Colombia, count on spending at least $1,300 per month for two people if you own your property. You spend approximately $1,700 per month if you’re renting an unfurnished apartment. A full-time maid will cost more, as will owning a car.
