Living in or around Leeds? Tired of the rut of your current job? Ready to learn everything you need to know about teaching English as a foreign language?
TEFL is certainly an exciting prospect for those who love to travel. At The TEFL Academy, our TEFL courses in Leeds offer you the opportunity to become a trained TEFL teacher by completing our Combined Level 5 TEFL Course (168 hours). A well-known and globally recognised TEFL course, it is a mix of online and classroom learning. The 20-hour classroom phase comes first, held over a weekend at the Jurys Inn in Leeds and under the supervision and instruction of our team of experienced and friendly TEFL trainers. The trainers will continue to guide you during the online phase as well.
At our TEFL course in Leeds, you’ll be fully instructed on the essentials of lesson delivery, planning, and development. We’ll also be giving you the exciting chance to get hands on and practise some teaching yourself. Over this weekend of the course, we’ll ensure that you walk away with a solid foundation of teaching English as a foreign language.
After the classroom phase, you can get going with the 148-hour online segments of the TEFL course. There is a limit of six months in which you must be done with these. But no need to worry, as it often takes only four to six weeks to get through the 148 hours of content. Within this time, you’ll learn all about the theory of TEFL, focusing on specific areas including grammar and vocabulary. Also, though this comes at an extra cost through other TEFL providers, we offer an additional section online on how to adjust lesson plans and styles for younger students.
We are the world's only TEFL course provider that has received official recognition from government regulated awarding bodies both in the US and the U.K. Our Level 5 TEFL Course is DEAC-approved as meeting the criteria for Approved Quality Curriculum (AQC) status. The DEAC is a U.S. Department of Education recognised awarding body. Our course is regulated by Ofqual (UK government) and awarded by TQUK, a UK government recognised awarding body.
Once the TEFL course is completed, you’ll be the proud owner of a Level 5 TEFL Certificate (168 hours). This will allow you to start to apply for TEFL jobs worldwide on the TEFL Jobs Board. It is recognised across the globe, fully regulated by Ofqual (UK government) and approved as the same level as the CELTA/Trinity CertTESOL qualifications.
