Learn to teach, from teachers

We know just what it feels like to step into the classroom for the first time because we've been in your shoes.

The TEFL Org was founded in 2008 by experienced EFL teachers Jennifer MacKenzie and Joe Hallwood. After years spent teaching in Greece and France, they returned to the UK with the ambition to help others experience teaching English as a foreign language and the incredible opportunities it offers.

Over the last 13 years, we have led the way in TEFL training. Our courses - all developed and delivered by highly experienced EFL teachers - have trained over 185,000 EFL teachers who have gone on to find work across the globe. And along the way we've picked up numerous awards and become the most accredited TEFL course provider in the UK.

Here at The TEFL Org, we're driven by a passion to deliver quality TEFL training that will enable you to start your own TEFL adventure!

Testimonials from TEFL Org course graduates 

Our students have gone to teach in some amazing countries and locations across the world and online. 

Hey, travellers and future teachers out there! I’m Ellie, a TEFL Org graduate who has taught for 5 years in China and 1 year in South Korea.
