Q1. Do you need qualifications to do TEFL?
A: TEFL courses are open to everyone; you do not need any qualifications or teaching experience. The only requirement is to be a native English speaker or to have a fluent level of spoken and written English. If you do not have any previous teaching experience, we recommend at least 120-hours of training to ensure you are as confident and well versed in TEFL as possible for when you step into your first lesson. A minimum of 120-hours of training also makes you eligible for the broadest range of TEFL jobs as this is a requirement for many employers.
