I was just wondering how other EFL teachers deal with the uncertainty of temporary contract work in the UK, particularly in Cambridge in case anyone reading this happens to work in the same area as me!
I did a year abroad after doing the CELTA last July and then a two month summer school. I’m now at a really good school on a kind of rolling basis but my current contract ends in the middle of Dec and I’m beginning to realise that the permanent contracts seem to only go to those with the DELTA and those with only the CELTA seem to just have to kind of take what they can get.
As January looks to be a month with much lower student numbers, I feel I could be facing 6 or so weeks with no work and no guarantee at the end of that!
I’d be really interested to know if anyone else has had similar experiences and can offer any opinions or advice on this situation.
