How Long Will The Course Take?
That is entirely up to you! All of our courses can be taken at your own pace. You can gain your TEFL certificate in as little as four weeks, if you are pressed for time, or you can take all the time you need.
We don’t set time limits, or expect you to fit in with our schedule, we work around yours. So whether you’re at college, working full time, have children to care for, or are ready to hit your studying full steam ahead – this is the course for you.
We have had students qualify in as little as 2 weeks (with a lot of hard work), and we have had students study gradually over 3 months or more. We have also had part-time students who took years to complete their course. And that’s fine too!
Ideally you should submit at least one assignment a year. If this is not possible and the course is left inactive for over 12 months then we will help you reactivate it. See here for details.
Who Is This Course For?
If you want to see the world and immerse yourself in a new culture, or kickstart a new career, then this course is perfect for you. And, thanks to its comprehensive content and simple structure, it is suitable for new and experienced teachers alike.
There are no course prerequisites, you don’t need any previous experience – just a determination to learn and an enthusiasm for teaching English. We provide the rest!

Alongside your own personal tutor, you will also have access to a huge number of online resources, featuring up-to-date information on a whole host of topics – in fact, on everything you could possibly need to know.

How Much Can I Earn?
TEFL teachers can earn a good salary, which when you consider the other benefits (travel, culture, freedom) makes this a very appealing career.
A first time TEFL teacher can earn:
- Between $22,000 (£14,000)
- And $39,000 (£25,000)
While a more experienced teacher can earn:
- Between $39,000 (£25,000)
- And $60,000 (£38,000)
Of course the exact amount you can earn will depend on where in the world you choose to teach and at which type of school or institution. As a rule of thumb though, in most cases a first time TEFL teacher will earn enough to cover living expenses and a bit extra – enough to cover outings, additional travel and some savings.
Additionally, many teaching jobs also include extra benefits such as free housing and flight reimbursement – making it an even more appealing career option.
