Other ways we can help you
Another way we support teachers and schools is by providing document authentication/legalization/attestation/apostille (depending on what country you are in). This comprehensive service is tailored to the country that the teacher will be working in. We complete the entire process – from notarization all the way to embassy authentication for nearly every country in the world!
We’ve seen many teachers struggle to get their documents authenticated, or they do it incorrectly and hold up the hiring process. In many cases, using us actually saves money compared to traveling to the consulate to do it yourself.
Many schools send their teachers to us for document authentication because they trust us to get it taken care of efficiently and correctly. As of right now, we can authenticate documents for U.S. issued documents and/or documents that belong to a U.S. passport holder.
Document authentication service benefits:
- We can also run background checks for people that are overseas
- Less work for schools (no need to explain the process, just send the teachers to us)
- This speeds up the visa process immensely
- Teachers can start working sooner (our service saves you time and stress!)
To ensure that we provide you with the most well-qualified teachers, we provide a wide variety of TEFL course options, including accredited 120-hour online TEFL courses, in-class courses, and combined courses. Each of these gives teachers the knowledge and experience that they need to be successful in the classroom.
Not only do these TEFL courses benefit the teachers, but they benefit the schools that hire those teachers too. TEFL course graduates are better prepared for both their future teaching job and they have more refined teaching skills.
Online TEFL course benefits for schools:
- Schools receive highly trained teachers
- Teachers can complete the course at their own pace, so they can finish quickly and start working right away!
- Centralized recruitment & teacher training process
In-class TEFL course benefits for schools:
- Hire teachers that have great hands-on experience
- Teachers taking the Shanghai in-class course are already in Shanghai
- Teaching Nomad can easily authenticate the TEFL certificates that are earned
Through our partners, your teachers can earn their United States teaching license or United Kingdom Qualified Teacher status. Use this to upskill and retain your current staff or as a benefit to future teachers!
There are many great teachers out there lacking professional qualifications. We’ve partnered with elite teacher training organizations to help equip your staff to deliver world-class outcomes.
