In Response To: Qualification to run own school? (Jon)

International House - a chain of language schools with its HQ in London - has run diploma courses in ELT Management for many years. The diploma can be taken as individual modules via distance mode. Search for Diploma in ELT Management Skills and ihonline for more details. Most of the people who take the course are experienced language teachers who are moving into management roles.

Since running your own school is more of a business than a language teaching issue, you might find a local TAFE course in small business management helpful - depending where you're thinking of going, you might also find that you can do such a course locally (once you've settled down, learnt the language etc), which would help you network and learn about local legislation, practices etc.

Generally speaking, it might be a good idea to spend at least a couple of years working for a school or schools in the country of your choice before setting up your own school there.
