What can I do?

There are many different ways in which each and every one of us can get involved in advocating equal employment rights for all teachers. Whether you’re a NNEST, NEST, recruiter, teaching association or a student you can do your little bit to help bring about the change and encourage equal treatment of all teachers, regardless of their nationality. Some of them are:

  1. Write an article for TEFL Equity Advocates blog.
  2. Share the website with your friends.
  3. Add the supporter’s badge to your site and a statement of support.

  4. Support your NNEST colleagues.
  5. Join one of the FB groups.
  6. Talk to your employer about equal rights for NESTs and NNESTs.
  7. Give a workshop on equality or propose it as a topic.
  8. As a teaching association, follow in the footsteps of TESOL Global, TESOL France and CATESOL and take a stand against discrimination of NNESTs by issuing a public statement.
  9. As an employer, choose your staff based on their qualifications, experience and language proficiency, giving equal opportunities to NESTs and NNESTs and join the ELT Hall of Fame.
  10. Openly speak out against this prejudice.
  11. Be proactive. Stop turning a blind eye. “Indignez – vous”, teachers!
