Without typing it all out again, here's a copy of my reply.
"Getting a TEFL or TESOL qualification is a good bet for long term fillers (just to clarify, that's Teaching English as a Foreign Language and ditto to Speakers of Other Languages), for any time you want to take a year or two off and teach English abroad, as a mid-life career change (says he!), or even as a career.
You need to make the initial investment on a 6-week course (don't do the on-line courses), and it's not cheap (not sure, but I suspect around 5-600 quid), but once you have that little piece of paper, the world is your lobster."
TESOL is really aimed at teaching English to groups of assorted foreigners in the UK, while TEFL is principally for teaching abroad.
I teach English at a university in Thailand, but there are jobs at all levels all over the world. China, especially, at the moment.
It's all out there on the Internet, but if you would like any advice, I'll help if I can.
