Open Up the International Education Work Opportunity

 The birthrate was declining; the job vacancy was declining either. Facing the declining job vacancy, how should the teachers deal with it? NTNU Office of Teacher Education and Careers Service held the seminar on March 30th. The seminar invited professor Tsai Ya-Hsun from Department of Applied Chinese Language and Literature to talk about the international education environment and how to get the certificate to teach.

Teaching overseas was not the privilege for students from department of applied Chinese language and literature.  It was suitable for all NTNU students who receive the teaching qualification. Professor Tsai indicated that due to the less vacancy in Taiwan, working abroad would be another road for students to take. You could not only teach your major, and even get better paid. 
With Mandarin as mother tongue, NTNU students had superiority in the international education market. The Taiwanese teacher qualification was approved internationally. After getting the international teacher qualification, more chances were waiting. Take California public schools for example, professor Tsai taught students the techniques of the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) and the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). Passed CBEST to become the substitute teacher and passed CSET to become the formal teacher. If you insist, work hard, and don’t give up, one day you will be an international teacher.
