About Program

At the TEFL Academy, our course leads to a Level 5 TEFL Certificate (168 hours), regulated by Ofqual (UK) and the DEAC (US) so it’s certified by two government bodies!

This course will give you a strong understanding of what employers are looking for. Complete 10 hours in the classroom as an addition to 148 hours of online study. For certain employers, it is preferable to have some in class experience other that solely online, our combined course gives you exactly that.

You will learn so much from other students in the classroom and have the opportunity to actually teach! The 10-hour weekend class is designed to breakdown the fundamentals of TEFL.

The TEFL Academy, excellent

The TEFL Academy is the only place to go to when doing your level 5 qualification. Good structure to the course with lots of support.
They have a excellent worldwide reputation. Unlike some other providers the support that The TEFL Academy provides is excellent.

There are 3 assignments which require a lot of work, this is good as you need to know your stuff if you want to get a good grade.

They provide great support after you finish the course if your looking for a job.

Great service.

Brilliant Course!

This TEFL was well designed. The topics were great and each unit had plenty of further reading. The course was challenging without being impossible and the material was interesting. The end of unit tests were well thought out and made you think about the unit completed. The course was good value for money and the option to extend your study time allows you to work around life. The teaching practise webinar was really beneifcial and allowed you to meet others in all stages of the course. Enjoyed!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Be more consistent from the start. High Recommend.

Tefl review

I really enjoyed TEFL course. The structure was well designed and it included all relevant topics that are essential when teaching English to foreign students. The platform was very easy to follow and l liked the layout as it was clear. The most enjoyable part was the practical component as it allowed to put the theory into practice and the teacher explained everything in a greater detail, so whatever l was not while doing the course, during the practical all my questions and queries were answered.

What was your funniest moment?
During the Practical component the moment of actual teaching, teamwork and getting to know new people

The online Level 5 TEFL course is a great course- broad and thorough. It gives confidence in teaching- listening, reading, writing and speaking; lesson planning and how to produce classroom materials. There are reference sections at the end of each unit providing further reading. The end of unit tests are fun. Assignment feedback is constructive. Assignments are marked quickly. The online format works well. It´s clear and easy to use. It is flexible and easy to fit around other commitments. I would highly recommend it.

Combined Level 5 Course

It's confusing to know which TEFL provider to go for but I would really recommend The TEFL Academy. I learnt so much and it's flexible because you can access the lessons in your own time. Assignments are challenging but really worthwhile because they simulate situations you will face once you're an EFL teacher. The course definitely helps you feel prepared for the classroom as each unit is very detailed and gives practical advice as well as the theory behind it. Overall very happy with the course and would recommend to anyone!

What would you improve about this program?
I would have enjoyed more of the interactive activities.

Flexible and Professional

This was an enjoyable course. Being online, there was a lot of opportunity to link extra resources and materials, which The TEFL Academy did well and often. The course work was engaging and flexible. The staff was very quick to respond to tickets, and were especially kind in letting me pause the course when life circumstances forced me to delay studying in order to move house amidst fire concerns. The experience The TEFL Academy provided has given me a good foundation for me to develop in the real and virtual classroom.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have prioritized my initial assignment in order to avoid having to pause my course.

Excellent Course 10/10

This course exceeded my expectations. Well written and presented and easily accessed via an online portal. It was very thorough and deserving of the hours it took to undertake it properly. After all, we all want to be able to make a difference and do our very best for the people we go on to teach. The response to any online ticket was prompt and good to know there were humans at the other end to assist. The examiners were thorough and provided excellent feedback; by keeping standards high, it will ensure the TEFL Academy qualification continues to be highly respected in the marketplace.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Make a proper plan, from the outset, for study time and stick to it. Found it really beneficial to have a quiet place where I could concentrate 100% on the course for several hours at a time.

My review

The material was really well prepared. Everything was clear, transparent and easy to digest. The graphic layout was eye catching which added to the pleasantness of studying with the TEFL Academy. The slides contained relatively small chunks of information which made the w studying easier and more pleasant. I really appreciated the videos with instructions for the three assignments. I think that was really helpful. The feedback from the tutors was motivational fur further development. I really like the fact that I didn’t feel pressured but motivated and encouraged to keep working hard and give my best.

What was your funniest moment?
My course took place remotely thus it’s difficult for me to mention any funniest moments. But a fun and unique program experience, in my case, was connected to preparing all three written assignments. I really enjoyed going them since they gave me a gist of what it means to be a teacher.
