If you’re feeling a bit stuck in your job, or even your life in general, take a few minutes to consider your options. You can

a) keep doing what you’re doing and continue being bored or frustrated,
b) quit your job and be happy that you’re not working anymore, but then be stuck again because you have to look for a new job, or
c) do a TEFL course, quit your job and be happy that you’ve quit your job and be excited because you know you’re going to find another one.
It sounds so easy, doesn’t it?

Well, it really is.

Firstly, and most importantly, a TEFL certificate is the key to the world of TEFL employment. In other words, if it’s a job you are looking for – and we assume it is – then you need to do a TEFL certificate. Once you have that piece of paper with those magical four letters on it, it’s really not hard to find a job. Have a look at online jobs boards, TEFL websites, forums, TEFL magazines (you can even ask us to do it for you – because that’s what we do!) and you’ll see there are tons of teaching positions just waiting for a teacher like you.

The tricky thing for a lot of people is that you don’t want to quit your job to study because then you’ll have a couple of weeks or months without any income. We get that. So this is why we have our 120-hour online TEFL course. Everything you need to know to get that TEFL job in one online course which you can do in your own time, whenever and wherever you can. So there’s no need to quit your job.

If you’re thinking, “But can I get a job with an online TEFL course?”, the answer lies in the 120 hours. This is the all-important number you need to know. As long as you have a certificate of a TEFL course which is 120 hours, employers will not be worried about where you did those hours, as long as you’ve done them.
Think about it: if you’re a TEFL employer looked for TEFL teachers, you’re not concerned about which institution your teacher has studied at, but you will pay attention to the kind of qualification they have: how long did they study, what did the course entail, how did they do? If a teacher has done 120 hours of a TEFL course, regardless of whether it’s in the classroom or on their couch, they will have the same knowledge. This is what TEFL employers consider.
So yes, you can get a job with an online TEFL course.
