I completed the 120 Hour Advanced TEFL Qualification and also their 30 Hour Online English Teaching Qualification, both of which I found really helpful in my journey to becoming an Online English Teacher. I cannot recommend this course enough, it's worth the money that you pay as these courses are very informative. The staff that I spoke to over the phone were extremely helpful, and I cannot thank them enough.read more

What a wonderful learning experience! The 120 h TEFL course that I´ve just finished has not only helped me get official recognition but has also been a highly enjoyable journey! The course material was relevant and up to date with current market tendencies, very well structured with lots of references for further reading and opportunities for self assessment . Strongly recommended to everyone considering a career in English teaching, especially to those who might feel overwhelmed by the scary amount of (often very costly) TEFL courses available.read more

I completed the 120 hour advanced TEFL course and couldn't be happier. I have been teaching English for a few years and was eager to get the TEFL qualification but didn't know where to start, it seemed overwhelming the amount of different companies and courses online. I just wanted the best quality possible for a reasonable price. When I got in touch with the TEFL Institue of Ireland the lovely Ola got back to me straight away. She was so helpful, giving me straight forward information and recommending the course best suited to my needs (not just trying to sell the most expensive one). Throughout the course I have had excellent support from the team and speedy responses. The course itself was interesting, stimulating and very user-friendly. I am very grateful to all the staff at the TEFL Institute of Ireland and I look forward to completing my next course with them in the near future! Highly recommend!read more

I have enrolled in the 300 hour Master Tefl Course. I am a Science teacher and I have found this course to be absolutely amazing. Before this course I took English for granted. I wasn't even aware that there is opportunity to teach English as a foreign language. Now I use it as a vital tool whilst giving instructions in my Science lessons. Thanks to Ola and Katie for lending assistance as often as necessary and as speedily as possible. I find all courses to be ideal for enrolment. the most important thing though is that the course in a logical sequence and is very user friendly and suitable for all learner learning styles. I must however say that having enrolled in the 300hr. TEFL course has made me into well rounded, classroom teacher.read more

I had completed a 300hr TEFL course and it was absolutely worth it. Staff are super helpful and do their best with any question queries during and after you finish your course. Currently, I had applied for a TEFL teaching position and received a response from Emma, the recruitment manager within a couple of hours. She was extremely helpful and encouraging which made the application process easy. Emma had listed all documents required and once I had forwarded them to her, she had sent off my application within a few hours. I was very impressed with how helpful, positive, fast and eager she was to get my application to the client but also her prompt replies and dedication in getting me placed as a TEFL teacher.I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in becoming a TEFL teacher to take on a course with The TEFL Institute of Ireland as the courses are very interesting and set in a way to give you a clear understanding of each module. Staff are very friendly, dedicated and do their best to get you where you want to be.read more
