Program description

More than 5,000 students take this 170-hour Online TEFL Course each year, making it the most popular course offering for International TEFL Academy. This course comprises of 150 hours of interactive coursework with 20 students in a class and a 20 hour Practicum (ESL student teaching/observation requirement). Graduates of this course are teaching English abroad in up to 80 countries worldwide and it is accredited & recognized as a professional "Level 5" TEFL course by Ofqual, Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (United Kingdom's education regulation body), which is the same level of accreditation enjoyed by our ITA operated 4-week classes, including CELTA. This online TEFL class also provides a recognized qualification for teaching English online.

The ability to earn a TEFL/TESOL certification on a part-time schedule appeals to those students who wish to continue working or going to school while completing their training. Aside from being able to continue with work, the Online TEFL Course enables students to afford the highest quality of TEFL/TESOL training at the professional certification level at a cost that is considerably lower than a comparable 4-week in-person class.
