If you’re searching to find the perfect course to complement your skill-set or advance your career, then you’ve come to the right place! Premier TEFL Courses are one of the best options out there, and we have a wide selection to choose from. Whether you’re a business professional looking to up your game, or a student who wants to broaden your horizons, we have the perfect course for you. Getting a TEFL certification is very easy with Premier TEFL!

Here, we’ll give you a comprehensive overview of the Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) Certification, and explain which courses of ours offer the best TEFL programs. We’ll also give you tips on how to choose the right course, and answer any other questions you might have about getting a TEFL certification.

The TEFL certification is an internationally-recognized certification that proves that you have the skills required to teach English as a foreign language.

There are currently four different levels of TEFL Certification:

  • Certified teacher,
  • Level 5 / CELTA certified teacher,
  • DELTA teaching certificate holder, and
  • Masters in TEFL or TESOL certificate holder.

Each of these levels requires different qualifications and experience to achieve.

To get a TEFL certification, you’ll first need to take one of our Accredited & Regulated TEFL Courses. Our courses provide you with the skills, knowledge, and experience required to become a certified teacher. After completing your learning modules, you’ll then need to pass an online assessment that assesses your teaching skills. Once you’ve completed both of these steps, we will issue you with a Certificate of Achievement that shows that you are qualified to teach English as a foreign language. We at Premier TEFL offer you all the high-quality tuition you need to get started. Our courses offer you the best possible options and prepare you for well-paid positions in the job market.

There are a few different levels of TEFL certification that you can achieve.

The first level is Certified Teacher, which requires you to have completed an accredited TEFL course, such as the 120 hour Premier TEFL Course. After completing each module of self-directed study, you will then need to pass a multiple choice online assessment that assesses your knowledge. Once you have completed these steps, we will issue you with a certification letter that shows that you are certified to teach English as a foreign language.

The next level is a Level 5 / CELTA Certified Teacher. This level requires more qualifications and experience than the certified teacher level, and it takes longer to achieve. However, once you have achieved this level, you will be in a strong position to find higer paying opportunities to teach English globally.

Premier TEFL Diplomas are CELTA-equivalent online courses. After completing your coursework you will then need to pass written assessments that assesses your teaching skills. Having passed these hand-marked assignments, we will issue you with an Ofqual regulated teaching Diploma certificate. Our TEFL Advanced Diploma offers even more specialized options for those looking to teach English in specific areas such as business or one-to-one.

The last level is the Masters in TEFL or TESOL studies. This certification requires an additional year of full-time study after graduating from your undergraduate degree. It offers even more ESL career paths including being an adult educator, curriculum leader, or an academic and instructional design roles.

Teacher training programs vary from country to country and can also change over time so make sure that you do your research before choosing one. With Premier TEFL’s courses, there is no need to worry about the cost or whether you will be able to find a program that meets your needs. We offer affordable, interest-free instalments and flexible teacher training options that can fit any budget!

We currently offer mainly three types of TEFL Courses, they are Online Courses, Virtual and Hybrid Courses, and short, professional development TEFL-Pro Courses.

Online Courses usually have a shorter duration and fully self-directed, flexible scheduling options, making them the best for those who want to learn English quickly and easily.

Virtual and Hybrid Courses are designed to combine self-directed online coursework with some face-to-face interaction in a classroom setting (Zoom), providing trainee TEFL teachers with a more engaging learning experience. Our blended TEFL courses contain 10 hours of instructor-led tuition in small groups of 12. You will take two 3.5 hour sessions on consecutive days with some homework to prepare overnight.

Micro Credential Courses give you all of the tools that you need to start teaching English in specialized areas immediately after completing a TEFL-Pro Course! Develop your niche and boost your hourly earning potential by becoming expert in teaching business, exam English or English through other subjects (CLIL).

You’ll be able to find the cost of these various courses below and also all the benefits these courses have to offer.
