Qualifications Required for International English Teaching Positions:-

1) Applicant must be a Native English Speaker.
2) Must have a Bachelor's degree from an accredited university from the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa, Scotland or Great Britain (UK).
3) Must be a citizen of one of the above mentioned countries
4) Must be in general good health, both mental and physical.
5) You must not have a criminal record. (background checks are a standard procedure)

TEFL or TESOL Certificates may give you an edge over others however they are not mandatory. As long as you have a bachelors degree with major in any field you are good to go.
