The 30-hour Weekday TEFL Course covers the same content as the 20-hour Weekend TEFL Course plus one extra teaching practice and the addition of a Teaching Young Learners module.
A short, online task is required to be completed before attending one of our weekday classroom courses. Don’t worry, this is just to gauge your ideas and expectations of what TEFL is and how the course can be of benefit to you. Access to the online task is available in your online student dashboard two weeks before your classroom course date.
