Nov. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Manassas, VA – 11-6-2012 – Each year more citizens of the Unites States, Canada and Australia fly to cities like Riyadh, Beijing and Seoul to teach English to local populations. A recent surge in demand for teachers is causing a lack of qualified applicants. The TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate, once an international requirement to teach English abroad, is increasingly becoming a supplemental resource. Many schools offer lower wages and poorer working conditions in lieu of the TESOL certificate. According to Ping Zhang, Assistant Director of Astar Education Institute (AEI), obtaining a TESOL certificate prior to departure can make a world of difference while overseas.

“People who have the TESOL certificate seem to receive higher paying contracts and better benefits,” Zhang said. “TESOL training better qualifies instructors to teach and inevitably allows for a better experience overseas.”

In response to this trend, AEI’s newest initiatives are comprehensive online, in-class and hybrid TESOL programs. AEI TESOL courses are at the graduate level, and are designed to equip teachers with all the skills needed to manage the classroom successfully, even if they have no prior teaching experience. Unlike other certificate offerings, AEI TESOL offers in-class training at their Manassas, Virginia campus in addition to the online segments, providing a substantial practice teaching course with real time English language learners.

The final outstanding feature of the AEI TESOL Certificate Program is its Guaranteed Job Placement program. The networks and partnerships that Astar Education Institute has established throughout the world will serve AEI TESOL Certificate Program graduates by allowing them guaranteed access to teaching positions, mediated and facilitated by AEI TESOL’s knowledgeable job placement consultants.  

Astar Education Institute, along with its parents company, Forte International, has been integrally involved with international education for more than two decades. As a long standing Independent English Language Program (IEP), designated by the Department of Homeland Security to issue the I-20 sponsorship document, Astar Education Institute has a history, and a proven track record, of delivering the highest quality education to its constituents and clients from every corner of the globe.
