Global Teaching Adventures will provide extensive employment assistance to clients, including, but not limited to: A qualified placement meeting, creating videos for each client, helping each client create a professional resume, identifying teaching opportunities for each client, arranging placement meetings, and providing logistical support.

If the client is teaching in the suburbs, a school representative will meet the client at the airport to provide transport. But for areas outside of the city, the client may be required to arrange their own transport to the school. In those cases, detailed instructions will be provided beforehand.

While Global Teaching Adventures will take location requests into consideration, it does not guarantee that personal preferences can be met.

If the client rejects placement, Global Teaching Adventures is not obliged to provide further assistance to the client. Additional support is fully at the discretion of Global Teaching Adventures.

Global Teaching Adventures offers a partial placement money back guarantee of 80% of the online TESOL (with tutor price) if the client does not secure placement within 30 days of arrival in Asia. This refund policy is subject to the following conditions:
