Aspire for a global career? Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is the perfect way to start your adventure!
Our courses are ideal if you want to teach English to non-native speakers. You gain an in-depth understanding of the English language coupled with the teaching skills you need. It's not just teaching, the knowledge and skills you develop prepare you for a range of possible careers in the media, administration, business and education; in fact, any job where the ability to apply critical thinking to problems, conduct independent research and communicate the results is required.
Our courses will provide you with a deep understanding of the structure and uses of this century's global language and the ability to teach it to non-native speakers. As well as opportunities to teach around the world, this course provides knowledge and skills which can prepare you for a wide range of careers.
