I am a possible expat from California. I have been reading (SEVERAL FORUMS) about the requirements to become a teacher. I will be going to Istanbul to take the CELTA course but my only concern for getting a job afterwards is my degree. I do not have a university degree but a tech school degree. It was a 9 month course for Medical Billing and Health Insurance (passed with very high grades). I was told by one school that as long as it says "college" and that it is at least an 8 month course, the department of ministry wont really know the difference.
I don't want to spend all this money to move over there, take the course and then find that my tech degree will not be enough. I have been private school educated from K-12 grade and I have worked in several well known international companies (Coca-Cola, Digitas, PCMall, etc). Will the CELTA and tech degree be enough to get me a work visa?
I am looking at attending either Oxford House College or International Teaching Institute. So if you have any comments about either of those schools, it would be much appreciated.
