I am delighted to have completed and passed Level 5 Diploma. I liked the combination of a quiz at the end of each module. It gave a good indication of what I had learned. The assessments particularly the final one were quiet challenging. Throughout the process the comfort in knowing that support was always there. Whenever I had a question I got an answer very quickly. Special thanks to both Rachel and Shauna. I also found the live zoom class on a Tuesday to be very beneficial whenever I needed it. Overall a very positive experience and I would highly recommend The TEFL Institute.

Question? get in touch


    Yes. There are plenty of opportunities for people Who want to teach online but don’t hold a degree. Once you are TEFL qualified, you can find work online using two routes: working for an online school or starting as a freelancer. We would suggest getting some experience working with online companies in the beginning before setting out on your own. Some companies that hire candidates that are not degree holders include Cambly and Latin Hire.

    Like any job, income is mostly based on your experience working for online companies. Usually, you start at a lower rate of about $10 -$12 per hour, which is increased by bonuses based on your teacher rating or the number of classes you take. If you have experience and are working in a specific niche, such as business English, as a freelancer, you can charge anything up to $35 per hour.

    A TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course is a training program that prepares individuals to teach English to non-native speakers in countries where English is not the primary language. In the Netherlands, there are several organizations that offer TEFL courses. These courses typically range in length from a few weeks to several months, and may be offered in-person or online.

    To find a TEFL course in the Netherlands, you can start by searching online for organizations that offer these programs. Some options include:

    International TEFL Academy: This organization offers a range of TEFL courses in the Netherlands, including online and in-person options.

    TEFL Institute: This organization offers a range of TEFL courses in the Netherlands, including online and in-person options.

    It’s important to carefully research the reputation and accreditation of any TEFL course you are considering, as the quality of these programs can vary significantly. Look for courses that are accredited by recognized organizations and have a good track record of preparing students for successful careers as English teachers.

    Once you have completed a TEFL course, you will be qualified to teach English in a variety of settings, including language schools, private schools, and universities. Many people who complete a TEFL course go on to work in countries around the world, including in the Netherlands.
