Paid Teaching Internships starting January 2016
Have you always had the idea of travelling at the back of your mind, but not sure how you’d afford it? Teaching English as a Foreign Language is a brilliant way to travel the world, see new places, meet new faces while doing something truly rewarding. Founded in 2008, TEFL Org UK has now trained over 25,000 people to be effective TEFL teachers, and over 78% of our students go abroad to inspire others to speak English all over the world.
One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to TEFL courses, so we have a wide range of courses on offer to suit every taste. From 20 hours of classroom TEFL training, to 140 hour Premier TEFL courses involving a blend of online and classroom learning, there is something for everybody. No previous teaching experience is required to take part in our TEFL courses, and many employers abroad will be happy to employ new teachers, as long as they have completed the correct amount of TEFL training. Most employers look for candidates to have successfully completed a minimum of 120 hours of TEFL training with an accredited TEFL provider, so it’s worth bearing this in mind when choosing your TEFL course in Newcastle.
Once you complete your training, you will be able to make use of our TEFL Job Centre, which is exclusive to students of TEFL Org UK! Browse through hundreds of teaching positions in countries all over the world looking for people like you to inspire their students to speak English as a foreign language, and apply to the positions you are most interested in.
