A few of our student course reviews:
" Just completed a 3 day course in Brighton with Asif and thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was really interesting and a lot of fun to take part in. Rachael was a brilliant tutor and handled the class perfectly. It was an unforgettable experience and well worth it."
Sandy Macdonald Google Reviews
The weekend course was brilliant, it felt relaxed but I learnt so much over the two days. Our teacher made the course fun and was enthusiastic for the subject. She was very approachable for help at any time. Taking part in the weekend helped put into practice what I have been learning in the online course, really recommend it.

A: TEFL courses are open to everyone; you do not need any qualifications or teaching experience. The only requirement is to be a native English speaker or to have a fluent level of spoken and written English.
If you do not have any previous teaching experience, we recommend at least 120 hours of training to ensure you are as confident and well versed in TEFL as possible for when you step into your first lesson. A minimum of 120 hours of training also makes you eligible for the widest range of TEFL jobs as this is a requirement for many employers.
