Regretfully we must inform you that the NIIED has decided to discontinue the TaLK Program due to the Covid Pandemic.
If this should change at some future date we will update this page.
Without a bachelors degree you will not be able to legally travel overseas to teach English. However, if you have a completed NQF Level 6 (a 3 year National Higher Diploma) or a 2 year Associate Degree or if you have completed the 1st & 2nd year of a bachelor degree you can apply to teach English in a Korean provincial public school on the TaLK Program.
TaLK posts are a great “soft landing” into teaching ESL as they only require 15 contact teaching hours per week leaving a lot of extra time for further study by correspondence to up-grade your qualifications to a bachelors degree or to complete your bachelor degree while earning a good salary with return ticket reimbursement, medical cover, a rent free apartment & great vacation time.
TaLK recruits every 6 months in Spring (Feb) and in Fall (Aug). Candidates are encouraged to apply early (4 - 5 months beforehand) to secure a contract before the intake is closed once all the vacancies are filled.
