Question taken from the SFN Facebook page
Hello all, would like some advice, I am a member of SF. I work as a nurse in a public hospital in the Var. I give paid English lessons to student nurses at the school of nursing.
The director of the hospital would like me to give English lessons to the personnel but wants me to do a "formation de formateur" first, he said to give me a piece of paper to say I can teach others and also that I can speak English adequately. There isn't really anything suitable here, but I wondered about the TEFL online course.
Has anyone any experience of this, is it considered "worthy" enough by French authorities. I would like to do a course that improves my teaching skills and might eventually open other doors for me, especially given the dire state of the health service here, they reducing staff levels daily.
Thanks very much.
