The TEFL Org Story

Our story started in 2008, when experienced EFL teachers, Joe Hallwood and Jennifer MacKenzie, returned home from years teaching in Europe and founded The TEFL Org. The mission from the beginning was clear: to offer high-quality, affordable training that would enable others to experience the same incredible opportunities TEFL had offered them. 

Since then, The TEFL Org has grown rapidly to a team of over 40 staff and tutors passionate about all things TEFL. Along the way we’ve picked up fantastic awards, expanded worldwide, gained more accreditation than any other TEFL course provider, and trained over 185,000 teachers who’ve gone on to teach across the globe.

Charity of the year 2024

This year, we’re partnered with the brilliant Theirworld. Theirworld is a children's charity dedicated to ending the global education crisis and unleashing the potential of the next generation. Their mission is to ensure that every child has the best start in life, a safe place to learn and skills for the future.
