Teaching in Trinidad and TobagoHi, I'm hoping that someone can provide some advice about the possibilities of teaching in Trinidad and Tobago.
I am a British citizen currently travelling through the US, soon to be heading to Mexico and Cuba before heading on to Venezuela and later, hopefully, much of S America. The US has wiped out much of my intended budget and so I'm very soon going to be in need of paid work.
Back home, I am a fully qualified English Secondary School teacher. Therefore, I'm hoping to be able to find teaching work to finance the rest of my trip. In particular, I'm looking for advice on teaching in Trinidad. Can anyone help? For instance, does anyone know if it is easy to find work out there? As English is widely spoken, would it be possible to find work as a cover teacher? Is it essential to have a Tefl certificate to teach English as a foreign language? How much is a typical salary/daily wage? I have scoured the Internet but have found very little. Any help would be much appreciated!

1Trinidad is a well organised country. I am not an expert on teaching there but I suspect there will be plenty of locally qualified teachers to fill any posts + the local pay would not be great and once you have covered your expenses (rent, food etc) would probably not leave enough to finance the rest of your trip.
