The customer service I received was absoutely brilliant. Emma Coleman was helpful, timely and attentive and answered all of my questions, making me much more comfortable with my purchase.

I recently completed TEFL's "Highfield Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language" course. TEFL is a wonderful institute. The course is well structured, easy to follow, insightful, and I feel I learned a lot about language and linguistics as well as how to teach English itself. The advisory and tutoring staff that I encountered, like Rachel Walsh, are very amiable, helpful and quick to respond. At all times, through the structuring of the course and the TEFL staff there ready to offer help, I felt fully supported and equipped to stay the course and finish with my qualification. I can't wait to get started!

I have recently enrolled to train as a TEFL teacher at the TEFL Institute. I contacted them through the website to make enquiries as to what was involved. As promised an advisor - whose name was Emma Coleman - phoned me back promptly to explain what was involved. She was extremely friendly, helpful and actually - probably through a lot of experience! - anticipated some of the questions and concerns I had. And put me entirely at ease about the process. The price I thought was quite reasonable too! What impressed me most was the genuine friendliness and the availability of the advisor, Emma, in the back-and-forth communications by phone and email as I sorted out my questions in advance of committing to the Level 5 course. A thank you to Emma and, now that I have begun the online course, I can highly recommend the TEFL Institute as the place to train for those seeking a professional certified TEFL diploma.

I'm so glad I've chosen this institute to study with as the customer service is top class - anything I've asked of Leo, he's answered with great patience and kindness. I've done an initial 30hr teaching online course and have just begun the 180hr course.

Excellent school ! I studied online from France and the lessons were very well constructed and structured. I have passed a level 5 Offqual TEFL Certificate 180Hrs, in less than 5 months. As I work during the week, I used to study in the evenings and in the weekends. Online support is great. There is the possibility to log on discord to chat with other students or members of the school. I was in contact with Rachel via email. Thank you to the whole team !!🤩

I did the level test after which I received several possible courses to take. Not being sure what the best option could be, I asked for a call and a few minutes after was online with Rachel Walsh whose great advise helped me going for the right choice, both in terms of my needs and price. I actually took advantage of the fantastic Cyber Monday discounts!!!

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.
One thing to look out for in a TEFL course is that the TEFL company offers an Ofqual-regulated Level 5 TEFL certification. This means the content, teaching, and materials have been examined carefully 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 make sure that you get at least 120 hours of training, which is the industry benchmark for employers worldwide.
The TEFL Institute have no other qualification criteria to complete one of our TEFL 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 TEFL 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, 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.
With all the different TEFL qualifications and hours, choosing the right TEFL 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 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 jobs 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 TEFL 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.
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.

Nobody is guaranteed a TEFL job; however, taking an accredited TEFL course will give you a far better chance than not being TEFL qualified.
