    I am a TEFL teacher with six years’ experience, but I have no degree. Recently I applied for a position with a leading school in Vietnam through an agency. I sent all the necessary certificates. And nowhere on my cv does it state that I have a degree. I did the interview and got the job yesterday. The school asked me to send a copy of my BA degree to the school. I emailed the agency and asked them if they sent the right documentation to the school. They confirmed that they did. What do I do? And am aware that you do qualify for a work permit if you have a TEFL certificate with 6 years + experience.
    Please give me advice on what to do next. I can’t take the job under false pretenses.
    Thank you have a good day

    So are you saying that the agency falsely told the school that you have a degree, or just omitted to tell them that you didn’t?

    Either way, it doesn’t sound like they have done their job properly, so I think I would start by asking the agency why the school is asking for a degree certificate from you.

    If they can’t help, then you may have to just send an honest email to the school explaining that you don’t have one and see what happens. The only alternatives I can see involve lying or falsifying something…

    Hope that helps.
