I am pleased to announce I have just completed my TEFL Level 5 Advanced Diploma! The team at the TEFL Institute of Ireland are amazing and super helpful when it comes to support and advice. Rachel Walsh was particularly helpful and I think she deserves a special mention for organizing a bonus module free of charge. I would highly recommend The Institute to career changers or anyone looking to up skill. Their online delivery is smart and simple to use.

I had a great experience in taking the 180 Hour Level 5 TEFL Diploma Course. I have been working as a foreign language teacher over a decade and the course truly enriched my professional skills. The fact that it englobes the experience of working as a teacher in online and face to face classes for both young learners and adults makes this course an indispensable opportunity. I also would like to enjoy this moment to thank Rachel Walsh, the customer support advisor, who kept informed during the whole process.
