About Program

Teaching jobs in Georgia are offered through the government of Georgia's "Teach and Learn with Georgia" program, commonly known as TLG.

This program places native English speakers in public schools around Georgia, mostly in more rural and remote areas. Georgia is a country of stunning natural beauty and ancient cultural traditions. Living here truly is the experience of a lifetime - it offers teachers the opportunity to learn about a virtually unknown part of the world, learn an ancient and unique language, enjoy amazing food and wine, and help a country integrate with the English-speaking world.

Please note that Footprints Recruiting does not work directly with the TLG program anymore. However, there is a link on our site to the TLG website where interested teachers can apply.

This program is no longer offered. View more programs from Footprints Recruiting.

This program is wonderful.

The recruiter, Footprints Recruiting, did a wonderful job during the application process. They responded to e-mails expediently, and processed all of my documents smoothly.

The program itself, TLG (Teach and Learn with Georgia) is an impassable opportunity. The wage of $USD is more than livable, and the host family placements are so rewarding.

I am working in a big city near Tbilisi. My host family is generous and fun. We are constantly inviting neighbors over for dinner, going to relatives' birthday parties, etc. Everything is an occasion for a party in Georgia. Georgians welcome guests as a gift from God--so it's impossible to feel hungry or lonely.

I teach at a school with 2 Georgian co-teachers. I am learning as much as I am teaching. The students are very sweet and eager to learn. I am constantly engaged and the days are NEVER dull.

I recommend this program to anybody with a heart for adventure, learning, and loving. Don't pass this opportunity up!

Experience of a lifetime!

Teaching abroad is truly an experience of a lifetime that everyone should try to add to their must-do list. Georgia was a remarkable place to teach, with its cultural mixes of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Footprints Recruiting offered a ton of support with documents and while in country. You have to be flexible for these type of teaching jobs, and you will gain in useful skills as a reward.

Definitely not what you expect

When I came to Georgia, I was looking for a challenge. I definitely got that and more.
It's not exactly for the faint of heart; crowded and run-down mini-busses, questionable hygiene, and general confusion is what you're going to find. However, there's three main lures here: the nature, the excitement, and a peek into a politically and historically exciting region.

You'll definitely have enough money to travel within Georgia, and you'll soon wonder why the Caucasus Mountains aren't more renowned. And you don't even need to hike or travel out to them. The mountains are always visible, and you're bound to travel through them even.

Its also exciting since its a pretty fluid society. You can get around and what you need without much trouble. This make it easy to hang out with friends, party, and just come across new and exciting lil' adventures day-to-day. If you've google'd this country, you've probably read about the hospitality. Yes, its true. Get ready for free food and drink sent over to your table time-to-time, easy new local friends, and fun trips.

As for the politics and history, its developing super quickly. Its been ranked highly by the world bank, and even Donald Trump has invested a ton of money into the country recently. And all this is built upon a turbulent modern history, creating a very interesting look at country which won't be in its current state for long.

Footprints was great

Over the years Footprints has been great in answering any questions I had for any opportunities that I was interested in. The Georgia program sounds really exciting since it's a new area.
