New To TEFL – Before You Start

Yes. There are plenty of opportunities for people Who want to teach English 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 to teach English online.

Earning your certification in teaching English as a foreign language is a great way to see the world while getting paid. TEFL certification programs can help you gain the skills and qualifications needed to begin a teaching career abroad. You do not need any previous experience or qualifications to take a Course.
Government agencies or external bodies, such as Ofqual, ensure reputable programs are academically rigorous, employ highly qualified instructors, and help students secure teaching jobs. A Level 5 TEFL course is equivalent to a CELTA course at a fraction of the cost giving you the peace of mind that your qualification will be recognised online or abroad.

Our world-class TEFL training courses receive official recognition from government-regulated awarding bodies in the USA and UK. This means that when you graduate, you’ll hold a globally recognised certification. Level 5 (180hr) Diploma/TEFL courses are DEAC-approved as meeting the criteria for Approved Quality Curriculum (AQC) status. The DEAC is a U.S. Department of Education National Accreditor. Level 5 Training is also accredited by Highfield Qualifications and regulated by Ofqual in the UK.

The Level 5 TEFL Courses offered by The TEFL Institute have received DEAC AQC Curriculum Approval. These include our comprehensive Level 5 TEFL Diploma course, as well as the 180-hour, 4x 60-hour, and 300-hour Advanced Diploma courses.

DEAC AQC Curriculum Approval signifies that The TEFL Institute’s Level 5 TEFL Courses meet the stringent criteria set by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) for Approved Quality Curriculum (AQC) status. This approval demonstrates the high quality and credibility of our TEFL courses, ensuring that students receive top-tier education and training in the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). It also reflects our commitment to providing excellence in teacher training and preparing our students for successful careers in TEFL worldwide.

One thing to look out for in a TEFL course is that the company offers an Ofqual-regulated Level 5 certification. This means the content, teaching, and materials have been scrutinised and are of high quality.
A qualification regulated by the UK Office for Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) can be awarded to learners. Another alternative is an externally accredited certification; however, you should ensure you get at least 120 hours of training, which is the industry benchmark for employers worldwide.

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  course and gain the qualification.
It 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.

The TEFL Institute have no other qualification criteria to complete one of our courses. As long as you have a decent level of English and are aged from 18 upwards, you will be eligible to gain your lifetime certification.

The short answer is no. Most employers are happy with the international standard of 120 hours accredited TEFL training. This is the International standard in most countries worldwide.

First and foremost, aspiring 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 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 initiative as it is an online course and you will need to be your motivation.

With all the different TEFL qualifications and hours, choosing the right course might seem confusing, but it needn’t be! We would recommend the industry standard 120-hour over a Level 5 if you fit most of the following criteria:
You have a minimum of a BA degree in any discipline.
You’re a native English speaker with a passport from the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa.
You’re seeking work in a country with a high demand for English teachers.
We would suggest a Level 5 over a 120-hour TEFL course if you fall into the following:
You do not have a degree.
You have no previous teaching experience.
English isn’t your first language, or you don’t have a passport from one of the countries listed.
You aim to work in a country with a competitive job market or online.
You don’t feel confident about teaching and want the most comprehensive training.

TEFL certification lasts a lifetime and allows you to advance your qualifications in your teaching career.

Speaking another language isn’t necessary for TEFL. Not having foreign language skills won’t prevent you from finding a TEFL job abroad or online. All you need to teach English is a certificate and, in some cases, a degree. You’ll find that few jobs will list a requirement for other languages – those that do are typically bilingual institutions.

If you’re looking for a new career in teaching English online or want to have a year abroad, the first step is to get your online TEFL certification. Why spend hours hunting for the right provider who offers in-class TEFL courses and finding a job when you can do both at the same time. Take your certification online and start looking for your new TEFL job through our jobs board.

The most important thing for non-native English speakers is researching the visa requirements for the country you are considering applying for a TEFL job. Certain countries will only grant visas to teachers from specific English-speaking countries, typically the USA, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. It could take longer to find TEFL work than a native English teacher, but as long as you have the right qualifications, there’s an excellent chance to find a great teaching job with perseverance.
