TEFL Accreditation with The TEFL Org

We have more accreditation than any other TEFL course provider in the UK, which means you can be assured our courses have undergone strict external monitoring and control.

This high standard is maintained across our range of TEFL courses, from our online courses to our Ofqual-regulated Level 5 TEFL courses.  We've trained over 185,000 EFL teachers who've used their qualification from The TEFL Org to find jobs teaching English all over the world.
