Level 5 Accreditation FAQ

Our Level 5 TESOL course is regulated by Ofqual (UK government department) and awarded by Qualifi, a UK government-recognised awarding body. Your qualification will be at the same level as a Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE), a foundation degree, CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and Trinity CertTESOL (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualifications.

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 have 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

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 Level 5 TESOL qualification on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications here. Ofqual recognise Awarding Organisations like Qualifi and regulate qualifications like ours. An Ofqual regulated TESOL qualification will be recognised worldwide and is highly respected by employers.

When you hear about “levels” this refers 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 5 qualification means that Ofqual (UK government), have approved the qualification to be at a recognised level of achievement. Our Level 5 TESOL Diploma (168hrs) is the same level as the following qualifications: a diploma of higher education (DipHE), a foundation degree and the CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL qualifications.

A TESOL Diploma is simply a slightly higher level of qualification than a "Certificate". It means you will have completed a more in-depth TESOL course.

A regulated qualification means that it is officially recognised by government and sits on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications. You can verify our Level 5 TESOL diploma qualification on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualifications, here.  

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 verify our Level 5  TESOL qualifications on the Ofqual Register of Regulated Qualification here. 

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 is fair, moderated and meets modern academic standards
  • Officially regulated by the UK government, therefore the qualification will be internationally recognised by schools, employers, foreign embassies and governments of most other countries.

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
