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 most internationally recognised TEFL courses lead to a level 5 qualification, which is the same level as the CELTA/Trinity CertTESOL. The minimum entry requirement for most well paid jobs, with the best packages, is a level 5 TEFL qualification. The level 5 version of our course leads to a Level 5 TEFL Diploma (168 hours), it’s regulated by Ofqual (UK government department) and awarded by Qualifi, a UK government recognised awarding body.

A TEFL Diploma is simply a slightly higher level of qualification than a “Certificate”. It will help your CV/Resume stand out against other applicants for TEFL jobs. Our Diploma is the highest Level 5 Diploma available, so courses advertised as an “Advanced Diploma” are equal to our qualification.

If you are looking for an introduction to TEFL and plan to look for casual work teaching English, such as volunteering, teaching whilst backpacking and some online teaching roles, then we recommend you choose a level 3 course. The level 3 version of our course leads to a Level 3 TEFL Certificate (120hrs).
