Why take the 168 hour Ofqual regulated Level 5 TEFL Course?

Are you on the hunt for top-shelf TEFL certificate? Look no further—our Ofqual regulated Level 5 Certification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (QCF) ticks off every qualification box you could ever hope for. Let’s break it down:

You get a full 168 hour course load, complete with 11 modules.

You can take the course on your OWN time (yes, there are online versions!) and can be ready to jetset to teach abroad within six months or less

It’s regulated by Ofqual ← That’s not a typo, that’s the accrediting body of the UK government. This is the equivalent to CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL qualifications but without the $$$ overhead $$$ of Cambridge training.

Your qualification is internationally recognized by schools, embassies, and foreign governments, making your job hunt all the more easy.

 

Ofqual regulated TQUK Level 5 Certification is the new golden standard in training for teaching abroad. The curriculum was created by actual TEFL educators, not to mention further reviewed and critiqued by TEFL educators, ultimately giving you (Welcome, future TEFLer!) a comprehensive introduction to all things teaching English abroad.

If you’re looking for a step-up in accreditation from the 120-hour TEFL course, but still want the flexibility of getting trained in an ultra-convenient way, then this higher level TEFL course certification program is for YOU.
