It has been three months since I completed the CELTA and on Saturday, by my calculations, I will not be able to claim non-resident status as I would be in the UK for 46+ days in 2016.
This venture has cost £2400 so far without any sign of making an income. I have applied for jobs and voluntary positions abroad to be told, if I am told, I am qualified except black.
And voluntary positions here in the UK assume that a volunteer is giving up all their time and all their money for a reference after 3 months that likely won’t come. I am a bit disillusioned as I really expected to be in a different place right now.
