PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR TEFL/TESOL TEACHERS

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS)  is an international standardised test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers.

Imagine helping your students to open doors to universities and jobs in English speaking countries? This important exam is taken by two million hopeful students annually – and you are the key to their success! Which means having this accredited certificate on your resume will boost your earning power by at least 30%.

Schools want you, students need you – opportunities galore await!  IELTS really is THAT important.

This seven module course will focus on how to teach the four main areas that students must be proficient in to pass:

  • Listening – students listen to four recordings and answer questions.
  • Reading – students answer 40 questions on various writing materials provided in the exam.
  • Writing – students will be asked to explain data provided to them and write an argumentative essay.
  • Speaking- assessment through four oral conversations on various general topics as well as more abstract topics.

Similarly to IELTS, the Test of English for International Communications (TOEIC) is a global standard in English proficiency.

Primarily a workplace exam for those employed in international business, it sees over six million test-takers annually.

This fully accredited six-module course will give you the specialist knowledge to work within a commercial environment and prepare your students for global career success. English is the global language of commerce. This means that you will be in high demand in this very lucrative area.

In this unit, you will understand how to improve your students’ score in the main areas of this hugely important exam. This centres around:

  • 45 minutes for Section I: Listening.
  • 75 minutes for Section II: Reading.
  • Approximately 30 minutes to answer biographical questions.

English is the language of global commerce, which means the demand for people who are qualified to teach English in a commercial environment is now one of the fastest growing markets in the (already) booming English language learning sector.

This fully accredited How to Teach Business English course will help you become a TEFL pro. At the end of this course you’ll know how to teach and what to teach in a variety of commercial settings. This could be one-to-one, online, groups of executives or groups of factory workers.

This seven-module course is packed with creative content to make you a competent business English teacher and covers:

  • How to teach the four skills for commercial use (reading, writing, listening and speaking).
  • Intercultural language nuances.
  • Teaching business English for specific purposes.

Teaching young minds is probably one of the most satisfying jobs you’ll do. The demand for your know-how will be vast. You could find yourself teaching online from home on one of the many platforms hiring thousands of teachers monthly. If your sights are set abroad, then schools across the world will be eager to employ you. Why? Because they have thousands of students on their books who need English teachers.

Over five jam-packed modules, you’ll learn how to use real or virtual classroom techniques and management skills to educate eager young minds. Here’s a brief overview:

  • Teaching grammar and vocabulary.
  • Teaching reading and writing.
  • Teaching listening and speaking.

  • WHAT IS TEFL?

    TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It’s 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 are at least 16 years old with a C1 level of English or higher. If you’re not sure, we have a free English test to help. TEFL is also great for you if you can work using your initiative because it’s an online course so 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 recognised, meaning you can teach online or around the globe. If you’re looking to teach in your home country at a language centre or would like to go to the UAE, we suggest you do our higher-level qualification – our 180 Hour Level 5 TEFL course. 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 its 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 recognised 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 incorrect. 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.

    Our specialist courses are much shorter than the main TEFL qualifications. They are all completed online and in your own time. All tests are done online and corrected instantly. They have course content and tests throughout the course. They can be completed before or after the main TEFL qualification. 

    Our 10 Hour Classroom Methodologies Course is completed through Zoom. You will join a class of no more than 12 students with your tutor, Kate. It will be held over two 5-hour days. She will be responsible for your passing mark based on your attendance, involvement and completion of an assignment. 

  • 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?

    All of our accredited courses include a PDF version of the certificate. This is perfect for applying for jobs online or abroad. Sometimes, perhaps for visa reasons, you may need a hard copy. We have options available, but there is an extra cost for print and postage.

    For our Level 5 TEFL course, there is a cost from the TQUK directly to issue the certificate. You can purchase this through our website and we will organise it for you.

There's lots of information both in the courses and linked to so you won't be left wanting there. Online courses are very convenient and there's great teams all around here. The ability to engage with others is also extremely valuable!!I took a course with Michelle Benson with a few other students, our only regret was that it wasn't longer as we had a very good time. Michelle's experience really showed - I asked a few questions and she had answers for all of them.

I just completed the 10 hour virtual course this weekend and I was really happy with it. Very informative, and a great addition to other courses. It was useful to experience the methods described in other courses in practice. I learned a lot from getting to practice teaching and watching other students practice. My tutor, Michelle Benson was great, very kind and patient and clearly knowledgeable and passionate about TEFL. I definitely recommend this course.

After searching extensively online for a TEFL course, I decided to complete my Level 5 TELF certificate with The TEFL Institute. The online platform is very user-friendly and the course is well planned and paced. The customer support is also very professional and answered my emails promptly.

I did the 120 hour course and I found it extremely beneficial and practical. It's very easy to complete within the time frame. I'm really looking forward to using my knowledge in the future. Angela and all the teachers are so helpful and you feel so supported on your TEFL journey.

I have just completed the 120 hour TEFL Course. I found the course very helpful for beginning to work with people who have very little English. I am mostly working one to one and the information and resources have really made a difference to my teaching practice.

My experience with the online TEFL 120 hours course was greatI found the course very user friendly and easy to follow. It was great that you could do it in your own time. I learnt a lot about the English language that I didn't already know. I feel I can confidently teach English after completing this course. I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to teach English abroad.

Pretty straight forward course. Was more interesting than I expected. I left this review thanks to Angelica. The only thing that could have been improved is I noticed instances where binary he or she are referenced without including they for non binary individuals

    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. You’ll have 180 days (six months) to complete your TEFL course, which is typically twice as long as needed to finish our most comprehensive training courses.
