Teaching jobs in Nepal
For ESL teachers interested in voluntary work, Nepal is an excellent country to give back through teaching, even for those without any teaching experience. A TEFL teaching certification is recommended and would definitely be an asset for teaching any level.
International schools are located in urban centers such as Kathmandu, or provide a distance education option, and teach with an internationally accredited curriculum. Due to the small number of international schools in Nepal, most teachers come to Nepal to volunteer or teach English.

Living in Nepal
Closed to the outside world until 1950, Nepal remains a fascinating country with something to satisfy every traveler's interest. The home of eight of the world’s tallest mountains, including Mt. Everest, Nepal has always drawn adventure seeking travellers. Due to dramatic differences in elevation, Nepal’s environment ranges from tropical savanna to ice and snow at its highest elevations. Adventure seekers can engage in a wide variety of extreme sports, including paragliding, mountain biking and kayaking.
Nepal’s largest cities of Kathmandu, Pokhara and Lalitpur offer a glimpse of Nepal’s medieval history, as well as modern amenities - trekking shops, bakeries and pubs. The cost of living in Nepal is very low, with a few US dollars going a long way. It can be difficult to change foreign currency outside of tourist centers; however, US dollars, the Euro and Pound sterling are usually readily accepted. Nepalese cuisine varies throughout the country, although dal-bhat-tarkari - a traditional soup made of lentils and spices served over boiled grain - can be found everywhere.
TEFL Certification for Private School Teachers
Many private schools in Nepal require applicants to possess a TEFL certificate. The University of Toronto’s TEFL Online Certificate can help you become a leading candidate for some of the top Nepalese private school positions.
