Course Summary

The online Level 3 version of our TEFL course will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to take your first steps in the TEFL industry. The course is designed for anybody seeking casual work teaching English, such as volunteering, backpacking or finding work “in-country”, and some online teaching roles. The Level 3 course is regulated by Ofqual (UK government department) and awarded by Qualifi, a UK government-recognised awarding body. 

After successful completion of the course, you'll be presented with an internationally recognised Level 3 TEFL Certificate (120 hrs). The Level 3 TEFL Certificate is the same level as the following qualifications: A-Level, BTEC Nationals, International Baccalaureate I8 and Advanced Apprenticeships. 

The course consists of nine mandatory units. All nine units are exam-assessed, and for two of the units there are also coursework-assessed assignments. You get 6 months of access to the course, but some students complete their qualification within 3 - 5 weeks (when studied full time).

The online Level 3 version of our course is designed to cover every aspect of teaching English from planning your first lesson to applying for your first teaching job abroad or online. Our units are designed to give you the maximum intake of information in the shortest time frame, allowing us to offer the most in-depth online Level 3 TEFL course available globally.

With so much choice and such a vast amount of conflicting information available on the internet, it can be difficult for potential TEFL course students to make the correct choice. The Level 3 version of our course is an introduction to TEFL and is perfect for anyone looking for casual work teaching English, such as volunteering, backpacking or finding work “in-country”, and some online teaching roles. After successful completion of the course, you'll be presented with an internationally recognised Level 3 TEFL Certificate (120 hrs).

The Level 3 TEFL Certificate is the same level as the following qualifications: A-Level, BTEC Nationals, International Baccalaureate I8 and Advanced Apprenticeships.

The Level 5 version of our TEFL course is a more in-depth overview of TEFL. It requires more of a time commitment (168 hrs) and is often a requirement to secure more formal jobs such as the contracted roles on our jobs board, which usually include accommodation, flight reimbursements and help in gaining a work visa. The decision on which level to choose depends entirely on your own needs, situation and teaching plans. 

All regulated Level 3 TEFL courses are 120 hours in length. We have never seen an employer that accepts Level 3 qualifications ask for more than 120 hours of TEFL training.

Level 3 Accreditation FAQ

Is the course accredited ?

Our Level 3 course is regulated by Ofqual (UK government department) and awarded by Qualifi, a UK government recognised awarding body.

Who are Qualifi?

The TEFL Academy is fully accredited by Qualifi, an Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation, a UK government department) regulated awarding body. Qualifi has robust quality assurance systems and procedures in place which all course providers must successfully pass in order to be accredited under the scheme.

Potential TEFL course students should remember that their prospective employers are likely to be based outside the UK. This means that accreditation bodies based solely in the UK may not be recognised by employers abroad. This is why The TEFL Academy has chosen Qualifi, as they offer international accreditation for training course providers.

You can find out more about Qualifi on their website: https://qualifi.net

Who are Ofqual?

The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland.

Ofqual is a non-ministerial UK government department.

You can verify our qualification on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications Level 3 here.

Ofqual recognises Awarding Organisations like Qualifi and regulates qualifications like ours. An Ofqual-regulated TEFL qualification will be recognised worldwide and is highly respected by employers.

What is a Level 3 TEFL qualification?

The different “levels” refer to the UK government’s framework for qualifications. This framework allows learners studying UK government regulated qualifications to understand where their qualification sits in comparison to other qualifications. A regulated Level 3 qualification means that Ofqual (UK government) has approved the qualification to be at a recognised level of achievement. Our Level 3 TEFL Certificate (120hrs) is the same level as the following qualifications: A-Level, BTEC Nationals, International Baccalaureate I8 and Advanced Apprenticeships.

What does "regulated" mean?

A regulated qualification means that it is officially recognised by government and sits on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications. You can view our qualification on the Ofqual register here.

What benefits does studying a regulated qualification offer learners?

Choosing to study a regulated qualification is your guarantee of quality. Course providers offering regulated qualifications must comply with very tough quality assurance rules and procedures. This ensures that:

  • The staff delivering and assisting students are suitably qualified
  • The course provider has the resources to effectively deliver the qualification
  • The course itself effectively teaches and assesses the qualifications aims
  • The contents of the course have been written and designed by industry professionals and peer-reviewed
  • The feedback and grades given to learners are fair, moderated and meets modern academic standards
  • The course is officially regulated by the UK government, therefore the qualification will be internationally recognised by schools, employers, foreign embassies and governments of most other countries.

How do I know if a qualification is regulated?

Any qualification that is officially recognised by the UK government will sit on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications. Make sure to ask your course provider to provide a link to the register for their qualification.

You can view our qualification on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications here.

What is the difference between a Level 3 and Level 5 TEFL qualification?

The different “levels” refer to the UK government’s framework for qualifications. This framework allows learners studying UK government regulated qualifications to understand where their qualification sits in comparison to other qualifications. The level of qualification you choose entirely depends on your needs, situation and teaching plans. Our TEFL course can be studied at two different levels, either Level 3 or Level 5. The Level 3 version of the course is an online-only 120-hour introduction to TEFL. This option is a good choice if you wish to gain casual work teaching English, such as volunteering, backpacking, or finding work “in-country”, and some online teaching roles. On successful completion, you are awarded an internationally recognised Level 3 TEFL Certificate (120 hrs). 

The Level 5 version of our course is a more in-depth overview of TEFL, includes a slightly longer commitment of 168 hours and gives you the opportunity to study the course completely online or as a combined course with 20 hours in the classroom and 148 hours of online study. Our Level 5 course is a good choice if you wish to gain formal employment teaching English, such as the contracted roles on our jobs board, or government teaching programmes, which usually include accommodation, flight reimbursements and help in gaining a work visa. On successful completion, you are awarded an internationally recognised Level 5 TEFL Certificate (168 hrs). 

Why do other providers offer so many course options and different levels?

The simple answer is, we just don't know! We offer one TEFL course, with the option to study it at two different levels, Level 3 or Level 5. These are the only two levels you need and the level you choose depends entirely on your situation, needs and teaching plans.  

We know that navigating your way through the TEFL web of courses is very confusing. This is why we offer just one course, exactly what you need to get the best jobs around the world!

What's the difference between TEFL and TESOL?

TEFL and TESOL are both acronyms for teaching English to non-native English speakers. Both acronyms can be used to describe qualifications which certify you to teach English as a foreign language. To a large extent, "TEFL" and "TESOL" are used interchangeably.

  • TEFL - Teaching English as a Foreign Language
  • TESOL - Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

Is a Level 3 course always a Level 3 course?

You may see cheap TEFL courses advertised online that claim to be a “Level”, such as “Level 3 100-Hour TEFL Course” (often advertised on daily deal websites). Unfortunately, these courses are not the level they claim to be and are highly misleading.

The level of a course tells learners where the qualification sits on the UK’s Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). If a course is not listed on the Register of Regulated Qualifications, then it is not really a Level at all. You can find our qualification on the register here.

Make sure you ask any TEFL training provider that claims to be offering a “Level” of TEFL course to provide a link to the Register of Regulated Qualifications. If they cannot provide this, then the qualification is not the level they claim it to be and will not be accepted by foreign embassies and employers.

Can you upgrade your Level 3 qualification to a Level 5 after you complete the course?

Yes, you can! Our students have the option to upgrade their qualification from Level 3 to Level 5. You can extend the course to cover the material of the Level 5 course and complete the extra hours and assessments. When passed, you will receive a Level 5 TEFL certificate.

"My advice to those who are thinking about teaching abroad is just go for it!"

When I finished university in July 2013, I was all for getting a graduate job and settling down into a 9-5 lifestyle. However, due to the evident current job climate, this didn’t happen. After graduation, I moved back in with my parents and found a temping job for the next 6 months in the countryside where I grew up. Read More
