Yes I believe the certificate is accredited internationally.

Hi Tom,
The TEFL-TP certificate is unique in that it focuses on teaching through theatre and games. It is closely aligned to our curriculum, and has been developed to suit the nature of our summer camps. So, it focuses foremost on preparing tutors for this type of teaching environment.
That being said, the program has been certified by the World TEFL Accrediting Commission, and ACLE itself is accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, so it is a valid and recognised certificate worldwide. And the huge advantage of this certificate over others is the amount of experience you gain. With ACLE you are guaranteed at least 120 hours of teaching time, with your own class, in multiple different camps. Therefore, you will gain diverse, hands-on, experience in an ESL environment.
Many of our tutors have gone on to secure other teaching jobs with just this qualification. It is also a fantastic base for more advanced TELF qualifications as well. For more senior TELF jobs, you are required to have certain certificates as well as a set amount of hours teaching experience. You can complete many, if not all, of these required hours with ACLE. So it is undoubtedly a valuable qualification to have. Plus, with the study-grant, this is a very cost-effective way of becoming TELF certified.
I hope this is detailed enough for you, but please do ask if you have any further questions.
