TEFL Courses



The majority of employers require job applicants to have at least a 120-hour TEFL certificate or a 250-hour TESOL/TEFL Diploma. We can provide both of these and more.

You can choose to complete our online TEFL courses with or without tutor support. Our highly skilled and experienced online TEFL tutors are available throughout each course to answer questions and to offer feedback and suggestions for future improvement.

Online courses are open to anyone over 17 years of age who is native or near native 



Study in the comfort of your home or office. Tutors are highly experienced, friendly and supportive



The great advantage of this TEFL course is flexibility. The online component of the course allows you the time to absorb the theories of TEFL teaching. Attendance at the training centre then gives you the opportunity to put this theory into practice.


The Combined TEFL course is ideal for those that do not cope well with, or do not perform to their full potential in intensive study programs. The Combined TEFL course requires only one or two weeks' attendance rather than the traditional four weeks.

You can complete the online component of the course over a period that is suitable for you. The online component can be completed in any period from two weeks to six months - depending on how quickly, or slowly you wish, or are able to work through the course. The online component of the course comes with full online tutor support.
