TEFL teachers are in hot demand all over the world and online right now, so there’s never been a better time to get qualified and start teaching.
Our story starts in a bedsit in Leeds,
an unlikely place for adventure some might say…
Over 25 years ago, our founder touched down back in the UK (Yorkshire) after a 4-year adventure-of-a-lifetime teaching English in Japan, volunteering in China, driving backpackers in Australia and tutoring in the mountains of Greece (phew!). With her life changed and magical stories created, she wanted to give everyone the chance to teach and travel too.
And so, i-to-i was born (hooray!) and we set about pioneering the first short classroom and online TEFL courses, making TEFL accessible to everyone and changing the way it worked forever! Bigger dreams needed a bigger office, so saying bye to the bedsit, we set moved to a proper office!
Now, in 2021 we have over 210,ooo happy i-to-i graduates from every corner of the world, living their TEFL dream. Seeing our graduates transform into awesome teachers with amazing stories to tell never stops being a brilliant feeling!
Even after all these years our passion for making storytellers stays the same. With teaching and travel in our bones and contacts around the world, we thrive on turning TEFL dreams into extraordinary adventures.
TEFL teachers may now be expected to teach English, as well as other subjects in English, such as Maths, Science, P.E, Geography, and Art. This is formally known as Content and Language Integrated Learning. Find out how you can become CLIL ready in our latest blog!Find out more »
As a TEFL teacher you’re likely to find yourself working with students who have a learning difficulty such as ADHD or dyslexia, which will take additional skills to recognise. That’s why we’ve launched a new course that’s designed to give you the relevant knowledge you need to help your students and advance your career.Find out more »
