Where there's a will to wander, there's a way to teach English.

“I didn’t have any teaching experience...”

No biggie! We all have to start somewhere! High-paid or higher-level teaching jobs can require teaching experience, but the majority of EFL employers are happy to take on newly-qualified TEFL teachers.

“I'm a non-native speaker...”

Good news: you don’t need to be a native speaker to teach English as a foreign language! Non-native speakers are accepted as TEFL teachers in countries all around the world.

“I don’t have a degree...”

No degree, no problem! While many employers ask for TEFL teachers with degrees, there are many who don’t. Don’t let your lack of a degree stand in the way of your TEFL dream.

“I'm over 50...”

Teaching abroad is no longer for the young and restless! Even mature teachers can make it work - this is the beauty of TEFL. In some countries, age is correlated with respect.

Learn. Teach. Inspire

Join 205,176 TTA Graduates Teaching Around the Globe!

Take the first step: Choose the right TEFL course.

After successful completion of your TEFL course, you’ll be presented with an internationally-recognised TEFL certificate and be  qualified as a legitimate TEFL English teacher all around the world – and you’ll have the pick of TEFL jobs.

We were the world’s first TEFL course provider to have received official recognition from bodies both in the US and the UK.

How can TEFL help you?

Anywhere and everywhere! A TEFL certificate from The TEFL Academy is regulated by Ofqual (UK government department) and awarded by Qualifi, a UK government-recognised awarding body. 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 National Accreditor. With a TEFL qualification from The TEFL Academy, you’ll be able to find a job in practically every country in the world, or even online.

The most internationally recognised online 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 online Level 5 version of our TEFL 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 online TEFL course. The Level 3 version of our course leads to a Level 3 TEFL Certificate (120hrs).

• The Level 5 course is the same level as CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL • The course is Ofqual regulated (UK government) • The course is 168 hours • The course is tutor-supported • 6 months’ access to the course

Our TEFL jobs are open to anyone who has a recognised Level 3 or Level 5 TEFL qualification. This means that as soon as you graduate from The TEFL Academy, you can start applying for teaching jobs abroad. New jobs are posted daily!

Our TEFL internships are open to anyone who has enrolled on our Level 3 or Level 5 courses and meets the requirements listed for each opportunity. An internship is the ideal way to kick-start your TEFL career whilst receiving a higher level of support than standard TEFL jobs. They are a good way to bridge the gap between qualifying and starting a more formal teaching role.

Our voluntary TEFL positions are a great way to get started with TEFL, helping you to gain valuable experience whilst helping others and receiving additional support. They are open to anyone who has enrolled on our Level 3 or Level 5 courses and meets the requirements listed for each opportunity.

Online TEFL courses work the same as other online courses. Your course is made up of a number of different units. Throughout the course you will need to complete and pass a number of different tests and assignments. If you have any difficulty during the course, you can reach out to one of our qualified tutors who will be able to provide feedback and answer any questions.
