TEFL courses

Unread post by Km1990 » 21 Feb 2017, 19:06

Hi.

I am looking to complete an online TEFL course and have been advised that 120 hours is the standard to complete.

Do you recommend any providers as many are very confusing in saying that they are accredited but to different organisations other that BAC and OFqual. Does this matter?

I am wanting to use my certificate to volunteer mainly as I am taking a sabbatical from work.

I currently have 5 years experience working as a Secondary school teacher and head of department in the UK so have plenty of classroom hours!

Thanks

Hi

I don't know much about online course providers and generally don't advise people to take one. If you want to make a career out of teaching, you should do the CELTA or Trinity Cert. Take a look at our teacher training forum where you'll find loads of advice.

All the best,

Lucy
