Highfields Qualifications

The TEFL Institute’s Level 5 accrediting body is the  (Highfield Qualifications). This qualification is aimed at those with little or no experience teaching English or those with previous experience seeking a recognised qualification to validate their knowledge. This qualification provides learners with a certificate recognised worldwide and can be used to secure teaching positions, visas and other employment related to English language teaching. For a more general overview of the units, we recommend Highfield Level 5 Certificate in Teaching as a Foreign Language (TEFL). To learn more about Ofqual or verify Highfield’s status, visit their website: Ofqual.

The Accreditation Council for Distance Learning:

An is accrediting body specialising in distance learning courses. Their ethos promotes the utmost standard of excellence among providers bearing a seal of approval assures students that ACDL-accredited educational providers offer the best in certified quality standards. The accreditation number is 2854-2540.

The Vital Consular:

What is this verification seal, and why is it different to an accreditation? The TEFL Institute is a verified UK TEFL provider, meaning that you can study any one of our courses with the knowledge that it will be fit for purpose when you need to use it overseas for your new teaching role. The Vital Consular verification scheme ensures that the members are all recognised by the UK Government. All certificates they issue can be used for an overseas work permit; not all TEFL providers meet these requirements!

This is extremely important if you’re travelling to China, Vietnam, Taiwan and other destinations where your documents will need to be legalised for your visa. If your certificate doesn’t get past the first stage of legalisation by the UK Government, you’ll likely have to start a new course, costing you extra time and money before you can even get things moving.

As a globally recognised TEFL provider, our academic team are responsible for developing and delivering a comprehensive range of accredited and government-regulated courses with extensive course material. The TEFL Institute has a reputation within the TEFL industry for its high calibre of training and for producing TEFL teachers of the highest standard. It is ranked as the number #1 training provider by employers worldwide.

  • 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 is sometimes even used as an easier way to travel. 

  • Who can do a TEFL course?

    First and foremost, aspiring TEFL teachers 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 be at least 17 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 do I need to teach online?

    If you have no experience in teaching online, a good idea is to get some teaching practice in, as they may ask for “experience” hours, which are unpaid. You can alternatively complete our 10-hour Methodologies course, which has a section focused on teaching English online. 

    Most online companies will ask for your TEFL certificate and teaching practice to have accessibility to good WiFi, a laptop or other computer devices, and headphones. Some online companies may ask their teachers also to have a Bachelor’s Degree. This is evident in Chinese online companies, as it is a government regulation (no matter where you live).

  • How are the courses laid out?

    Our courses contain content, videos, podcasts, reflective tasks, and tests. They are online courses and can be completed independently and from home. 

    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. 

  • Are the courses accredited?

    The TEFL Institute is fully accredited by ACDL. Our 180-hour Level OFQUAL regulates 5 TEFL courses. 

  • Is this course completely online? How flexible is this course?

    All courses are all done online, and no travelling is required for the tests. Except for the 10 hours of Virtual training, you can log on at any time. This is to ensure our TEFL courses can be done while working or for other studies. There is a 6-month deadline for the courses, but you can contact us for extensions.

I’m on assessment two out of three with the 190 hour level 5 diploma with the TEFL institute of Ireland. I am loving it so far and the flexibility of doing it is great and really suits my schedule. The course is affordable and they usually have offers on courses online. The completion time is 6 months which is an ideal amount of time. The tutors are great and very helpful if you have any questions. The course is challenging but achievable and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get into the world of teaching.

I just finished an online teaching course with Michelle Benson. It was very well organised, her instructions were easy to follow, and she motivated everybody with lots of positive feedback during the sessions. She showed us through her example how online teaching can be fun and serious at the same time.
