The standard 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 4 to 8 days, which will give you 40 hours of classroom-based training.
The same material is may be 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.
Once you have completed your TEFL course you will be given access to Eastend TEFL connection, an employment service which will help you find your dream job.
