The course material is thorough and provides plenty of resources to help students get started in a career in TEFL. The 168 hour course is a good choice to satisfy the teaching certification requirements of almost any school. I was a bit disappointed to find out the hard copy Ofqual certificate costs an extra $89, although this may not be necessary for most people to have. I urgently needed a certificate for work visa purposes and due to COVID-19, TQUK is not currently even printing Ofqual certificates. However, Premier TEFL's customer support was extremely helpful and sent me a hard copy of the 168-hour course certificate (not official Ofqual but still an "original certificate") express at no extra charge. I was happy with this prompt service and am looking forward to starting my new career.

The coursework is engaging and direct. I found the interface very accessible and there is a wealth of videos available for support on using the website. I really appreciated the technical support from the team. Aiveen was so quick to help me with any issue I presented and Sandra was excellent as well. All staff are kind and happy to offer support. Having seen other TEFL services used by friends and colleagues, I can assert that Premier TEFL is the most simplistic and effective. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to travel and teac

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing! I found it easy to navigate the course myself and when I had an issue the staff were able to resolve it immediately and with a smile.

The course was quite engaging and resourceful. I enjoyed a nice balance between the theory and practice of teaching.
It provided necessary information and knowledge on how to conduct a successful class with different types of students.
The UI was quite very user-friendly and clear, the information was easily accessible at every moment and it was possible to navigate easily throughout the course.
Customer support was excellent, I got a prompt reply to each of my requests for help and they helped me successfully every time.
Overall, I would recommend them to anyone.

What would you improve about this program?
Perhaps the tests/ quizzes could be a bit more difficult. Perhaps, you could make questions more random when it comes to retaking the test.

I read HUNDREDS of reviews for other programs and I'm positive I found the perfect one. The course is at your own pace, the material is rigorous enough to make it stimulating, and the support staff is great. I'm a UCLA graduate and I am surprised at how much I learned and loved this course. I'm interested in tutoring and teaching English online and one of the job requirements is a TEFL.

I'm glad my certification is regulated by an outside organization (Ofqual). Anything that can beef-up an "online certification" is important.

PremierTEFL is a great fit for anyone who cares. I say that simply because the course requires self-motivation and interest in teaching English. Starting the course I definitely had self-motivation but not an overwhelming passion for teaching English. But my mind has been changed! The course does an amazing job of showcasing why English teaching is important

Great course! Sign up!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have purchased a longer course. I thought 168 hours would be enough material but after the few first modules, I wanted more specialized information.

Premier TEFL has helped me to efficiently acquire a TEFL certificate. The materials are available at all times, from any device, making it easy to choose pace and fit the course around my schedule and lifestyle. Each lesson contains valuable advice, practical examples, reflection prompts to assist in applying knowledge in your own life, useful exercises to reinforce learning and user-friendly tests that check your understanding. Modules end with supportive and uplifting messages and quotes which add charm and inspiration to learning. People in Premier TEFL are clearly passionate about language, teaching, gaining new experience and making sure this is done in a high quality way. A personal tutor is available for help with the study materials, students get two useful eBooks and there are a lot of additional resources available for reference. Despite this being a remote online course, Premier TEFL has managed to convey a sense of individualised approach, warmth and support, all with a healthy dose of humour and wit, making the experience that much more enjoyable. Give it a go, you won't regret it! :)

It was the first time I bought a course online and I had a lot of second thoughts before buying one. I decided on this one because of the good reviews and the great discount price!
I am glad I did! The course has a simple layout, gives clear instructions and has valuable information.
Customer operations are very friendly, answer quickly all your questions and you can reach them in various ways (mail, phone, text messages)
During all this time I have been receiving mail with job opportunities for teaching abroad. This is very helpful!
The only thing I would change is the annoying background music in the videos..
I have purchased another 5 courses and I starting them today!!!!

What would you improve about this program?
The background music from the videos, easier navigation.

In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical about getting an online certification that would be able to give me all the knowledge I need to teach English abroad. You know, we always have been used to have direct interaction way of learning, so it's quite normal to be worried about this, I would say. In a few hours of studying, and since passing through the very first chapters, I understood my concerns were unfounded. Super clear explanations let you enter in teaching worlds as easy as cutting the butter. One of the best features is the key concepts' recycling you'll find throughout the course, which makes you acquire the information much more easily. You can definitely see all the great effort made to construct the course, even just for how well is structured the successions of lessons, going from the basic concepts to more specific ones, but always in a smoothy way. The second great advantage of Premier TEFL courses that you guys will certainly notice by yourself right away is the assistance you've got for every little problem you'll come across: you'll be assigned to a personal tutor, and you can write him/her by email and in few hours you will receive the answer. In this regard, thank you so much Martin for your patience! Finally, the last gem you will be grateful for, it is the online chat you've got on the website, that comes to rescue you when you need a quick solution to any problem. Where else can you find an instant messaging service at your disposal?
Are you looking as well for abroad experiences? No problems at all, the guys will organize for you an amazing paid teaching experience somewhere in the worlds you may like! You literally have no time to realize and you already are in some stunning country having the best of your life experiences. There will never be enough words to describe how much I appreciated this journey, so I will just say THANK YOU!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
They were definitely the great cultures I met during my journey. I thought I would simply teach English, but it was instead an explosion of flavors, smells, and colors.

The team at Premier TEFL are beyond helpful. I was put in contact with Ameerah. I had experienced several personal issues that meant I had been unable to complete the course. I was very nervous that I would be told I would have to pay all over again. However, Premier TEFL were unlike other companies, and they really showed that they valued everyone they speak to. I was given the chance to continue to course without having to pay again. The course itself it very informative, and the modules are well structured and orderly. Once I have completed the course I know I will be ready to teach English to a great standard.
A genuinely lovely company of a great standard.

What would you improve about this program?
I would perhaps make some of the modules a little more concise as it could at times be overwhelming. However, I also think this is what makes it a great course as it is very in depth and is necessary to prepare us as English teachers.

I have been an English tutor for the past few years, and after my summer internship fell through due to COVID-19, I thought that getting my TEFL certificate would be a great way to upgrade my resume while stuck at home. After browsing through many different TEFL programs online, I selected Premier TEFL and am so glad that I did because it has so far been an excellent platform. The modules are clear and well organized, and the customer service is incredibly helpful. I would highly recommend this program based on the experiences I have had with it so far!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I was surprised to learn the extent to which English is a “lingua franca” - I knew it was used worldwide, but I can now understand the value of having a mutual worldwide language.

Love this company. I took their 168 hour Ofqual regulated TEFL course. Since completing that, I enrolled in and completed their 30 hour IELTS and am now enrolled in the 30 Teaching Online course. The 168 hour course was broken down into eleven sections and it took me from beginning to end. The 30 hour IELTS course taught on each section of the exam separately which made it easy to follow. I am not college educated and even though I was challenged, I was able to understand and complete everything in these courses. Definitely worth every cent spent. Thank you.

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I would improve is checking the essay answers quicker.
