What if my employer wants to verify my certificate?
First of all, congratulations on your TEFL job offer! Kudos… we’re excited you’re in the process of landing your dream TEFL job.
In many countries, employers will be required (or have a preference) to receive official verification that your teacher training certificate is authentic. Don’t worry, it’s a good thing that they want to make sure you’re a genuine applicant with all of the correct paperwork.
Now it’s simpler and quicker than ever to complete TEFL certificate verification. Your future employer can check the genuine status of your Premier TEFL issued certificate by visiting our certificate verification page and entering the unique identifier from either your digital or hard copy printed certificate. Hard copy Premier TEFL certificates issued after July 1, 2021 have their own unique identifier that is different to a digitally issued certificate. Both identifiers are valid and can be verified online.
This service is available for all Premier TEFL certificates issued from March 25, 2019 (excluding Level 5 certificates which are issued directly by our Ofqual regulated awarding organization). For certificates awarded prior to this date, employers and TEFL job recruiters can email us at [email protected] for prompt manual confirmation.
Ofqual Level 5 certificates are issued by TQUK and you can verify this certificate here.
