A qualified French teacher, and now?

With your knowledge, research and experience in teaching, you are prepared for a successful career in education. Given France's role in the EU and international trade, we expect good job opportunities, partly due to the teacher shortage. You can teach within Dutch secondary or vocational education, or you can work at a language school.
