I purchased the 120 hour TEFL course. TEFL often offers its courses at discounted rates so you get really good value for money. I found the online platform very easy to use and the material is well explained. I am in Final Year college and required an extension to complete the TEFL course. TEFL were very professional and understanding and granted me an extension after just one phone call. Sarah Foley could not have been more friendly and helpful over the phone. It took no time at all. This is a great service that they provide and makes it easier to complete the course alongside your current workload. Thanks TEFL! Looking forward to finishing my course.

This course was very well organised and shared a lot of useful information. I hope to teach English now although it is harder to find a job without a bachelors degree.

TEFL has been great for opening up the opportunity to travel and work, for me in particular for heading to Indonesia in 2022. The course so far is very user friendly and is very flexible with the option to extend your study time where needed. Sarah Foley was particularly helpful in sorting this out for me! Would definitely recommend TEFL!
