Becoming a Chinese teacher in Ireland

Hi guys

I've seen that Ireland is really starting to promote Chinese language learning nowadays. E.g. http://www.cii.ie/index.php?c=news&t=news_detail&id=97

I'm an Irish citizen currently living in China. I've been here for 7 years and have completed a Bachelors degree in Chinese Language. I'm planning to return home later this year.

I'm very interested in becoming a Chinese teacher in Ireland in the future but I haven't been able to find a Postgraduate teaching certificate in Ireland that covers Chinese. Is there another route into teaching Chinese?

Many thanks
Clive

Hi Clive, you could try and contact the Confucious institute. They might be able to connect you with the right people.
