Most Popular TEFL Courses

Qualify to teach English as a foreign language with one of our most popular TEFL courses. TEFL qualifications are measured in hours, with most employers requiring teachers to hold a 120-hour certificate.

You can get your 120-hour TEFL qualification entirely online or combined with classroom study.


NEW Level 5 TEFL Courses

If you’re looking for the highest available level of TEFL certification, our Ofqual regulated Level 5 TEFL course is for you. This advanced and in-depth course has been specifically designed by us to give you even more job opportunities, improved salary potential, and the confidence to work and travel throughout the world.


Online Courses

Flexible and self-paced.  Our online courses have been created to fit around your existing schedule so you can get TEFL certified in your own time, at your own pace.  With the same level of accreditation as our practical course, our online TEFL courses are the perfect option if you’re unable to fit in a classroom course.


Classroom Only Courses

Led by a highly experienced and qualified EFL tutor, our classroom course will cover how to plan and deliver informative and engaging lessons to English learners of any age and level. With regular classes held across Ireland, Spain, and the UK and you can study at a location near you. This course is an excellent option if you’re looking to get a taste of what it means to TEFL, but for more comprehensive training, we recommend a combined online/classroom course.


Combined Courses

Combine flexible online study with a fun-packed, confidence-boosting classroom course. Our combined courses are designed to give you an excellent grounding in English grammar and TEFL methodology with support from highly experienced EFL tutors both online and in a classroom setting.
