What does Level 5 mean?
Our fully accredited Level 5 TEFL course has been scrutinised by respected external bodies, so you can be sure that it is of the highest standard. The DEAC in the US have recently been added to our ever-growing list of accreditors. Level 5 TEFL courses are named as such because they have been assessed to be a level 5 qualification in accordance with Ofqual’s qualifications framework.
The TEFL Org has specifically designed this course to help you secure work in competitive job markets, improve your skill set, and give you the confidence and teaching techniques to travel and work across the globe.
Why should I choose a Level 5 TEFL / TESOL 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.
Developed and written by TEFL professionals, our Level 5 TEFL Course covers the principles required to teach English as a second language. Additionally, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and techniques to teach learners of all ages. Track your progress throughout your training with interactive quizzes and written assignments, which will be marked by your personal online tutor. Let us support you through every step of your TEFL journey with our exclusive TEFL Forum and personal tutor.
Our level 5 course is regulated by OFQUAL (the UK non-governmental department responsible for regulating educational standards). You can study safe in the knowledge that you are receiving the highest standard of TEFL training with one of the world’s most accredited TEFL course providers.
How does the course work?
You can get your Level 5 TEFL qualification entirely online with our 200-hour Diploma course, or combine it with a 20-hour weekend virtual classroom TEFL course. You set the pace when it comes to online study so you can fit the course around your schedule. And with our virtual classrooms no matter where you are in the US you can learn to teach, from teachers. See below for further information about Level 5 course options.
220-hour Level 5 Virtual TEFL Course (Diploma)
Get the most out of your TEFL course with our combined 220-hour level 5 TEFL Diploma course. We have combined the 200-hour Level 5 online diploma course with a 20-hour virtual classroom course. The 200-hour online course can be completed at your own pace and you will be supported by a personal tutor from beginning to end.

What does Ofqual regulation mean?

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.
