Is TEFL worth it?

There are several reasons why we advocate for undertaking a TEFL course. Foremost, a growing number of worldwide employers mandate TEFL certification as a job prerequisite, ensuring their students have the highest chance of success. Furthermore, numerous countries demand TEFL qualifications for an official work visa, making it impossible to secure a legal teaching job without this accreditation.

Another significant reason for acquiring TEFL certification is to equip yourself with the necessary skills and knowledge to design and execute engaging, high-quality lessons. The era when native English speakers could easily land top teaching positions based solely on their language proficiency is largely a thing of the past. At ITTT, we provide a range of TEFL courses tailored to accommodate any lifestyle or study timetable. We offer in-person training centers worldwide for those wanting to blend travel with learning. Alternatively, we provide a variety of online courses resulting in accredited TEFL certification for those who prefer to study from home or aim to teach online or locally.

In-class TEFL courses

If you prefer face-to-face instruction, we offer numerous on-site training locations worldwide. These courses typically span four weeks and are more intensive than our online options. A key benefit of this study mode is the opportunity to practice your teaching skills in a real English language classroom setting. Our courses include comprehensive English teaching theory lessons led by experienced trainers. Of course, we also ensure ample time for exploring the local culture and surroundings.

Online TEFL courses

If an in-person course isn't feasible due to time or financial constraints, our online TEFL courses are an excellent alternative, offering value for money and flexibility. You will access all study materials, top-tier videos, and individual assessments via your personal digital platform.

Upon course completion, online TEFL graduates receive a distinctive, embossed certificate that future employers can verify. You will also gain access to our extensive digital resource library, lifelong job search assistance, and a large online teaching community for networking and knowledge sharing.
