This depends on your motivation for becoming TEFL certified. Whether you plan to teach English for a few months or begin a whole new career.
The 168 hour Level 5 Ofqual regulated TEFL Course is best suited to those looking for a longer-term TEFL experience. This course takes on average, 10 – 12 weeks to complete. Afterwards, your coursework will be reviewed by our Internal Quality Assessor (IQA).
This review will determine if you should be asked to re-attempt any of your written assessments to better demonstrate an understanding of the course learning objectives. It’s common for most learners to be reassessed on a few areas of the course.
Trainee teachers on a level 5 course should be prepared to undergo this coursework review, and the time necessary to complete it. As part of such a prestigious award, rigorous checks are in place to uphold the quality standards of the training.
By taking a level 5 TEFL course online, you’ll certainly gain the best value for your money. Taking a CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL typically takes one month of classroom time. You’ll gain the most in-depth English teacher training possible from a self-study course and be ready to begin a new life as an English teacher.
If you’re searching for a more fast-track TEFL certification to teach overseas, and have no formal plans then check out the 120 hour Advanced TEFL Course. It’s internationally recognised, comprehensive and very popular.
