The 30-hour Weekday TEFL Course is a great way to get TEFL qualified in only three days.  You’ll learn everything you need to start out in the TEFL classroom!

Weekday TEFL Course Contents

The 30-hour Weekday TEFL Course covers the same content as the 20-hour Weekend TEFL Course plus one extra teaching practice and the addition of a Teaching Young Learners module.

A short, online task is required to be completed before attending one of our weekday classroom courses. Don’t worry, this is just to gauge your ideas and expectations of what TEFL is and how the course can be of benefit to you.
