Assessments

As level 5 courses require learners to attain a 100% pass mark all coursework will be reviewed by Premier TEFL’s academic team upon successful completion of each module on the learning platform. A re-assessment may be needed if a response does not fulfill the requirements of the question. All written course work will be assessed and returned to the student with the assessment decision, feedback and re-assessment questions where necessary.

Premier TEFL students are awarded three separate attempts for the reassessment process following initial coursework completion. Your reassessment answers will be collected through an online form. If this form is attempted or submitted more than once, only the most recent submission will be reviewed by the assessment team. This will be clear through the timestamp of the submission.

Students will receive their first re-assessment free of charge as per Premier TEFL’s assessment policy.

If a second and third re-assessment is needed, a fee of £35 / €40 / $45 will be charged for each additional re-assessment.

Upon failing all three separate opportunities for reassessment, students will officially be recorded as a fail grade on their TEFL course. Re-assessment fees are non-refundable.

Students are allowed to request a re-assessment extension of 10 working days under exceptional circumstances. Any additional re-assessment extensions will incur a fee of £35 / €40 / $45. Please note that should any changes be implemented to the assessment process employed by Premier TEFL from the time your original assessment review took place and the time of your re-assessment submission, that you will be required to comply with these changes to validate your qualification.

Updates to the assessment process are put in place to ensure the criteria and standards of this qualification as set by the awarding organizations, Ofqual and TQUK are adhered to by each learner.

You will find these certificates and letters in the Dashboard of your Study Hub. For all courses except for Level 5 qualifications, the digital certificate if free of charge. In the case of the 168 hour Ofqual-regulated TEFL Course, on completion you will first have access to a letter stating that the coursework is completed and your coursework is now being reviewed by the academic team before it can be passed with TQUK to release your official Ofqual certificate.

The decision is final and our internship provider cannot challenge or insist on being given reasons for any rejection on your behalf.

Our internship provider uses partner schools that operate to the highest standards available locally and comply will all relevant Thai laws. Neither the partner schools, or our internship provider, will accept any liability to you arising from discrimination laws, health and safety practice or other matters between your internship country and your home country.

For example, please be aware that as well as your qualifications and general experience, employers in Thailand may take into account, appearance, strength of accent and medical history etc. when making a recruitment decision.
