Get your Level 5 TEFL qualification with the UK’s most experienced and accredited TEFL course provider. These in-depth courses will give you the skills and knowledge needed to teach English for the first time.

What does Level 5 mean?

A Level 5 TEFL course is one that is regulated by TQUK and has been assessed to be a Level 5 qualification according to Ofqual's qualifications framework. There are 9 qualification levels according to the framework, with the higher the level the higher the difficulty.

Why should I choose a Level 5 TEFL course?

We introduced our Level 5 TEFL course in 2019 to provide students the opportunity to study TEFL in more depth. This is our most comprehensive TEFL course, perfect for those with no prior teaching experience who feel they would benefit from more training than a 120-hour TEFL course offers.

How does the course work?

You can get your Level 5 TEFL qualification entirely online with our 200-hour course, or combine it with a 20-hour weekend or 30-hour weekday TEFL course. You set the pace when it comes to online study so you can fit the course around your schedule and we have classroom locations across the UK and Ireland. See below for further information about Level 5 course options.

What does Ofqual regulation mean?

This course is regulated by TQUK, an Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) recognised awarding organisation. According to Ofqual's qualifications framework, it has been assessed to be of the same level and difficulty as the following: a diploma of higher education (DipHE), a foundation degree, 2 years at university and the CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL qualifications.
