TEFL Course Information

Here at The TEFL Academy our 120-hour TEFL courses in Plymouth offer an accessible way for students in the South West to qualify to teach English as a foreign language. With teaching centres across the UK, The TEFL Academy specialise in convenient courses which educate you with all the knowledge and skills required to teach English in the United Kingdom and right across the globe. Our 120-hour TEFL course has been developed to provide the most in-depth TEFL education available in the UK – in the most accessible format.

If you’re thinking about enrolling on a TEFL course in Plymouth or beyond, it’s important to understand the TEFL qualification you’ll receive after all your hard study. Many TEFL employers do not consider TEFL candidates with less than 120-hours of TEFL education. TEFL teachers who have qualified with 20-hours of classroom training may be preferred by some employers. The TEFL Academy course includes all of the crucial aspects you need to win TEFL roles in the UK and across the globe.

Our 120-hour course incorporates one 20-hour classroom TEFL course in Plymouth over one weekend session, followed by a 100-hour, student-led online course which will hone the educating skills learned during your TEFL weekend.

After completing both parts, you’ll be awarded a 120-hour TEFL certificate, qualifying you to work as a TEFL professional in almost every country in the world. Where will your TEFL course take you? Get some ideas by perusing our exclusive TEFL Jobs Board.

Keen to get into TEFL? Plymouth TEFL course places can be reserved with a deposit of just £50 when booked over 2 weeks in advance. (Access to the online course is provided on receipt of the full balance of payment).

Course options explained

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. You should ensure that your TEFL course includes 120-hours of TEFL tuition, as this is the international standard for entry level teaching positions. 

You will see many courses available that are shorter than 120-hours, these options are TEFL taster courses and will not be accepted by most employers. We have never seen a job that requires more than 120-hours of TEFL tuition. 

If you feel you would benefit from face-to-face tuition, including the opportunity to practice all you have learnt in the classroom, you should choose a combined 120-hour TEFL course with 20-hours of face-to-face training. Combined courses may be preferred by some employers.

Tutor

Jenny Hardacre, Course Development Manager

Jenny started teaching in 1982, and was initially surprised to find that she really enjoyed teaching!

She was surprised to find English grammar really interesting. Her first job was in Turkey and there she discovered how fascinating it is to live in another country – quite different from being a tourist. After Turkey she worked in Greece and Spain, the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. She came back to the UK in 1990 and worked for a year teaching ESL to immigrants, which she loved. Apart from work she enjoys enjoy walking, cooking, gardening, reading and current affairs. She has plenty of advice for new teachers, but thinks the most important thing is to take a genuine interest in your students. It's much easier to teach people effectively when you know a bit about them - and much easier to learn from someone who really cares about your progress.

"My first job was in Turkey where I discovered how fascinating it is to live in another country."

Lisa Da Silva, TEFL Trainer

Lisa has been involved in English Language education since 1994, when she decided to become an EFL teacher in order to combine her interest in the English language with her love of travel.

She currently works freelance as a teacher, trainer, examiner and educational writer. She has worked in the UK, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Portugal but has also traveled to many other countries such as India, Brazil and Canada. Her main interests are writing, travelling, meeting new people, keep fit and cycling. She thinks new TEFL teachers should always remember to make learning an enjoyable and memorable experience.
