For most of the last generation, the newly independent nation of Georgia has run programs to attract native speakers to teach English in the Georgian school system. As the economy continues to grow, the private sector is also offering more opportunities as well.

English teaching jobs in Georgia are available year-round with expected downtimes being August and Christmas through the second week of January. A typical teaching contract is 6 or 12 months in length. In most cases, schools recruit teachers in advance over the phone/Skype, but there are some instances where schools will recruit in-person with interviews conducted in Georgia. While a BA/BS is preferred, it is not required to teach English in Georgia, however, a TEFL certification is.

Wages are modest - you certainly won't get rich teaching English in Georgia, but the cost of living is low, so you should expect to break even while living comfortably. The English teaching job market in Georgia is strongest in major cities like Tbilisi.

The Teach and Learn with Georgia (TLG) Program is a movement initiated by the Georgian government and administered under the Georgian Ministry of Education and Science. The program involves recruiting native English, French and German language speakers to co-teach alongside local teachers in public schools throughout Georgia. Participants of the TLG Program will have housing provided to them as well as return airfares.
