The TEFL Org Story

After teaching English in Europe for many years, Jennifer MacKenzie and Joe Hallwood returned home to the UK with a mission: to help others experience the incredible opportunities TEFL had brought them. So, in 2008, The TEFL Org was born!

Bringing to the market high-quality, affordable training developed by real teachers who understood the industry proved popular, and The TEFL Org rapidly grew over the following years. We picked up awards, expanded internationally, and secured more accreditation than any other TEFL course provider in the world.

Now, our team has grown to over 40 staff and tutors who are passionate about all things TEFL.

Charity of the year 2024

For a second year, we’ve partnered with Theirworld, a children’s charity dedicated to ending the global education crisis. Theirworld believes that every single child deserves the best start in life, as well as a safe place to learn and develop skills for the future.

Our team raises money for Theirworld throughout the year, and when you sign up for a course you can choose to donate to this brilliant charity yourself. Anything you donate, The TEFL Org will match, which means your donation goes twice as far!
