    Hi there,

    I am looking to do a CELTA course

    I have a mathematics degree from the Open University.

    If I do the CELTA course, will i be able to gain employment in Saudi Arabia or surrounding countries? I have been told that having a degree from the Open Uni will not be acceptable? is this true or false? please help me, i really need some solid advice.

    Currently I am working with Ford in program management and have 10 years experience here.

    Thank you.

    Yes, but probably not before you have at least a couple of years teaching experience. It’s rare to find an employer in the Middle East who will recruit newly qualified teachers. It happens, but it’s rare.

    I have been told that having a degree from the Open Uni will not be acceptable?

    I haven’t heard this. A degree will be a requirement, but I’ve never heard of any discrimination against degrees from the Open University.

    Anyone else heard about this?
