TEFL Internships

Our TEFL internships are a great way to start your teaching career. Get paid a great salary and receive support throughout your contract.

Our TEFL internships are open to anyone who has enroled on the Level 3 or Level 5 version of our TEFL course and meets the requirements listed for each opportunity. Our TEFL internships are the fastest way to kick start your TEFL career whilst receiving a higher level of support than standard TEFL jobs. Most of our TEFL internships will include 24×7 local support, an orientation week with lots of other foreign teachers, excursions, accommodation, living allowance, help getting a bank account and sim card, and fewer working hours than a standard contracted teacher . Our TEFL internships are the perfect way to bridge the gap between qualifying and starting a more formal teaching role.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

How is an internship different to a job?

A TEFL internship is a short-term teaching position. You might be a teacher or a teaching assistant. It’s different from a teaching position because it’s a fully supported teaching position. It’s organised totally by a company that will hold your hand every step of the way. In other words, you don’t apply to the school but rather to a company for a specific position.

How do I apply for an internship?

The application for an internship can be filled in on our website. Our internship partner will then be in contact with you within a week or two. 

How long until I hear from my internship application?

If you meet all the requirements for the internship you have applied for, you should expect to be contacted within 2 weeks of submitting your application. If you don’t meet the requirements, you will not be contacted so please ensure you read through them carefully before applying.
