Hot Topic: TEFL Diplomas

While many teachers are opting for masters degrees, teaching diplomas are being put on the backburner.  Masters degrees and diplomas serve very different purposes. It's generally agreed that masters degrees concentrate more on theory while diplomas concentrate more on practice.

While some diplomas, such as PGCEs are for those who want to teach at international schools, others like the Delta (there's now the Distance Delta and the Online Delta.) or Trinity Dip are for those who want to teach EFL and ESL. Both masters degrees and diplomas are useful and will help you continue your professional development and get a good job.

What do you think?
Should teachers get longer or permanent contracts?  What type of contract do you get at your school?
