  • WHAT IS TEFL?

    TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It is primarily teaching non-native speakers English without the use of translation. This means you won’t need to know their first language. TEFL teachers will need the knowledge and know-how of the methodologies to teach in this way. This is why teachers will first need to complete a TEFL course and gain the qualification. TEFL is widely used to either teach English online in one-to-one or small group scenarios or to teach English abroad and sometimes even used as an easier way to travel.

  • WHO CAN DO A TEFL COURSE?

    First and foremost, an aspiring TEFL teacher must be outgoing and confident, and not afraid to make themselves look a little silly, especially when teaching children. Expression is a huge part of the methodologies to be able to get your point across. You’ll warm up to this in time and it all takes practice. 

    We suggest people to be at least 16 with a C1 level of English or higher. If you’re not sure, we have a free English test. We also would recommend people who work on their own initiative as it is an online course and you will need to be your own motivation.

  • WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY TEFL CERTIFICATE?

    As a TEFL qualified teacher, the world is your oyster. Our 120 hour TEFL certificate is fully accredited and internationally recognized, meaning you can teach online or around the globe. If you are looking to teach in your home country at a language centre or would like to go to the UAE, we would suggest you doing our higher level qualification, our 180 hour level 5 TEFL course, as this is the requirement in such competitive countries.

  • WHAT DOES LEVEL 5 MEAN?

    A Level 5 TEFL course is one that is regulated by Ofqual according to their qualifications framework. Another Level 5 teaching qualification is the CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Once qualified with a Level 5 TEFL qualification, you’ll have access to the most competitive jobs worldwide.

  • WHAT DOES REGULATED MEAN?

    A regulated qualification means that it is officially recognized by the government and sits on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications.

  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 120 HOUR TEFL COURSE AND THE 180 HOUR LEVEL 5 TEFL COURSE?

    Both courses are your main TEFL qualification and give you the opportunity to start your ESL career. However, there are a few differences between them and the right choice will depend on your story and goals.

    The 180 hour course is a level 5 qualification and can be compared to a CELTA or TrinityTESOL. This course is harder and longer to complete, but worth it in the end as it opens up so many opportunities. This course should be taken if you’d like to teach in your home country or certain places in Asia.

  • HOW ARE THE COURSES LAID OUT?

    Our courses are filled with course content, videos, podcasts, reflective tasks, and tests. They are online courses and can be completed in your own time and from home.

    Our 180 hour TEFL course has 11 modules with a test at the end of each module, consisting of both MCQs and open-ended questions. This level 5 course has a 100% pass mark. All of the tests can be taken online and submitted. Our system will correct your multiple choice answers immediately and you’ll be asked to retake the test if not correct. You can retake the test as many times as you need. The open ended answers are checked by our assessment team and you will get feedback if your answers need to be changed. You won’t get an unlimited number of times and there may be an extra to repeat so be sure to take their feedback into account. Once our assessors pass you, your level 5 government regulated certificate will be issued. You are given 6 months to complete the course, but extensions are available if needed.

  • TELL ME ABOUT THE CORRECTION/ ASSESSMENT PROCESSES?

    All online course tests are corrected instantly, with the exception of our 180 hour Level 5 TEFL course. All accredited courses require an 80% pass rate and retests are free.

    The 180 hour level 5 TEFL course contains both multiple choice and open ended questions. The multiple choice questions are corrected instantly like normal, but word count is the only factor corrected instantly with the open ended answers. After every three modules, our expert assessors will correct your answers and give you some tips if an answer is not up to standard. Although the instant corrections are free to redo, you may be charged if your long answers are incorrect for a third time, so please take their advice into account when completing the reassessment process.

  • IS THE CERTIFICATE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

    There is a cost from the TQUK directly to issue the certificate. You can purchase this through our website and we will organize it for you.

I think the 120 hour TEFL course has been well worth my time. There are so many opportunities that will come from this course when I am a student travelling abroad. I have taken my time going through the different modules and taking everything in. The only criticism I would give would be to give the participants a longer time to complete the course and reap the benefits from it. I have really enjoyed it and can’t wait to start teaching English abroad.

This online Tefl course has been super easy to navigate and the support from staff is 10/10. If I ever have a query I email or message them on Instagram and get back to me within the hour it’s excellent customer service. I spoke with a girl called Sarah when I was stuck with something and she was very helpful and friendly.The course itself has been brilliant and I find it’s very easy to follow and to learn from.Would highly recommend to anyone looking to start a TEFL course :)

For future teachers who wish to improve their skills in the classroom, and who are actively looking to learn new techniques for teaching English as a foreign language, I would highly recommend trying the 10 hour TEFL Classroom Methodologies Course. I found it really helpful in building my own confidence in the classroom and Kate gave us a lot really useful advice and strategies for planning and implementing engaging lessons. Even though the course was done online, it was really practical and interactive and led to a very enjoyable experience where we got a chance practice some of the new techniques and skills we learned. Before, I would have been worried about how I would approach certain areas of English, such as grammar. This course definitely helped to overcome this! I cannot recommend the TEFL institute too highly especially Kate who went above and beyond to help me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I have just completed my 180 hour level 5 course. This course was very informative and has prepared me in the best way possible to take on a role to teach English as a foreign language. Any time I needed help or had any queries Kate and the assessment team were always on hand and very quick with a response. I would recommend this course for anyone interested.

I started my TEFL journey back in 2018 but was unable to finish my course at the time due to life getting in the way. The TEFL institute, and Kate in particular, has been really helpful from the beginning by providing information about the courses they offer and now helping me extend my study time to allow me to get certified after all this time. I would recommend to anyone thinking of getting certified.

I am completing the 180 hour course and I have found the course to be fantastic. The course content is very interesting and the lessons are so interactive and accessible. It provides all the information you could possibly need to become an English teacher and the staff working for the institute are so helpful. They are easily contacted and will help with any queries you have, I have interacted with Kate in Customer Support and she was so helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in English or being a teacher, or if you want to see the world and have more opportunities. I am very excited for the future now and to see what opportunities this course will have provided me with.

FAQS
What If I’m Not Good At Grammar?

Don’t panic! In many cases your focus as an English teacher will be conversational. Most native English speakers aren’t aware of grammar terms; but you’ll cover everything you need to know during your course, plus receive a 70+ page Grammar eBook.

What Score Do I Need To Pass My TEFL Course?

Your TEFL course is marked through continuous assessment with end of module knowledge tests. You’ll need to score 100% to pass, and unlock the next module. If you don’t pass first time, you’ll be able to re-sit at no extra cost, so don’t worry.

How Long Does A TEFL Course Take?

The time taken to complete a TEFL course depends on how much study time you can dedicate each week and which duration of course or training package you choose.
