I started my TEFL journey back in 2018 but was unable to finish my course at the time due to life getting in the way. The TEFL institute, and Kate in particular, has been really helpful from the beginning by providing information about the courses they offer and now helping me extend my study time to allow me to get certified after all this time. I would recommend to anyone thinking of getting certified.

I am completing the 180 hour course and I have found the course to be fantastic. The course content is very interesting and the lessons are so interactive and accessible. It provides all the information you could possibly need to become an English teacher and the staff working for the institute are so helpful. They are easily contacted and will help with any queries you have, I have interacted with Kate in Customer Support and she was so helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in English or being a teacher, or if you want to see the world and have more opportunities. I am very excited for the future now and to see what opportunities this course will have provided me with.

I purchased my 310 hours course including the virtual class room back in Feb 2021. I didn't have the chance to start right away. I explained to support in tefl that I couldn't start right away, they were very understanding made me feel at ease that I can start anytime. I really enjoyed the virtual class room,. It was fun and I learnt alot in two days. Michelle Benson was amazing and made the two day virtual class room easy and fun. I really recommend booking and doing the tefl course. Very worth your while and fun also.

I signed up to the level 5 300 hour course. I absolutely flew through it as the modules are jam packed with information, extra reading materials and useful links. I am delighted to be finished and looking forward to finding a job in the field. Rachel Hammond was my course assessment officer and she provided great feedback for me to put the finishing touches on my work. Emma Coleman was a fantastic help when I finished my course as I was unsure what to do next regarding certificates etc. A quick phone call changed that and she pointed me in the right direction. I want to say a massive thank you to the whole team who helped me throughout my course. Now off to sunny Spain with my teaching qualifications 🎉
