Ooh, ooh - I know this one!

EDIT: Nope, it doesn't. @dessa_dangerous: I saw you use one a couple of weeks ago - what are the tags now?

I will graduate with a PhD in Global Studies this year, and have a Masters in Global Studies, both from a German university Given the difficulty of finding a permanent position in German academia, I was advised to look at teaching English at the school level.

IMO, Global Studies is rather vague. Did you try NGOs?

I can only speak anecdotally but, yes, it seems to be a fairly common path, at least round my way, of course employment prospects are often very localised.  My impression would be that there are a range.  Some people I know who taught English go on into secondary schools, others are right at the start with the little kids.   Not sure if the routes would be the same, or of equivalent formality / quaifications etc.   

 

Where? Education is Ländersache.

I have B2 German and can work on it, but is this a feasible option? My experience is teaching at the University level and also  teaching private classes in English and in private schools.

 

Since education is a responsibility of the Länder, you have to look at the requirements for each Bundesland.

 

With your qualifications you would not be allowed to teach in a public school in Berlin. Furthermore, a minimum of C2 German is required to teach in the public school system in Berlin.

 

Although there are some Referentenstellen where your subject area is needed in the public service, with only B2 German you don't have a chance (and you won't be able to make the necessary leap from B2 to C2 quickly).

 

If you can't find a job as a consultant, I would highly recommend that you look outside of Germany as well (I wouldn't recommend staying here to be a freelance English teacher at your age).

My wife is German, has the First Staatsexam (but from Saxony) has over 15 years of teaching experience, and was basically told that she should forget trying to work as a public school teacher in Bavaria unless she felt like repeating her education. 

 

So much for "Quereinsteiger" and " Lehrernot"!  Maybe in "Berufsschulen" in technical fields or maybe in other Bundesländer.

Ok, so a native German kid writes this...

How do you do that?

 

Most of the German teachers of English at Gymnasium level I have met would think that was fine.😂
