The UK-TEFL Standard TEFL course is the first course you should take if you have never done any English teaching, and serves as the perfect introduction to the world of TEFL. Put simply it equips you with teaching methods and ideas to help people, who don’t speak English as a first language, to improve their proficiency.

Once you have completed the training you will be qualified to teach English as a foreign language.

Most of the people who take our course use the certificate to go and teach overseas, seeing it as an opportunity to travel and experience a new way of life.

Others use it to stay in the UK to teach privately, at a summer school or as part of a scheme run by their local authority.

Obtaining one of our standard course certificates is the ideal starting point in the world of TEFL and for many of our graduates leads to a lifelong career in English teaching.

The standard course can be done over 2 days, which will give you 20 hours of classroom-based training, or 3 days, which gives you 28 hours.

The same material is covered over 2 or 3 days – the main difference is the amount of time you have to complete the work. The three day courses are a little more relaxed as you are given an extra day to go over the material, and you have an extra teaching practice. The 2-day courses are always run over the weekend, whereas the 3-day courses take place mid-week.

  • Are any particular qualifications required to enrol on the courses?
    You don’t need any qualifications to enrol on the Standard Course. As long as you can speak English fluently you can attend – you don’t even need any teaching experience. For the Advanced Course you should have either already attended the Standard Course or you should have some previous TEFL experience.
