Ensuring our courses are of a high quality and recognised by schools and employers around the world, is core to our values. All i-to-i courses undergo strict external monitoring and control, so you can be confident that your training is top quality.
This course is UK Government-regulated by Ofqual and their sought-after stamp will appear on your certificate. It is also DEAC-approved, meaning that it has received official recognition from the US Government-regulated awarding body.
The first part of the course will cover foundation TEFL learning which includes the fundamental basics like lesson planning and managing your classroom. Once you’ve mastered these, you’ll move on to some more in-depth topics.
Then you’ll learn about teaching grammar – but don’t worry, you don’t need to be a grammar expert – we’ll teach you everything you need to know!
With this course you’ll also learn about adapting your teaching styles and lesson plans to accommodate for younger students.
Units you\’ll cover:
Learn how to personalise your teaching approach. You’ll also get insider info on the technical aspects of teaching online to help you get set up as an online TEFL teacher.
English is the universal language and there’s a high demand for adults to learn it to help them in their business negotiations and partnerships. In this Specialist TEFL Course, you’ll go through business language and grammar, meetings and networking, and different teaching methods, so that you’re ready for your first business English lesson.
Teaching other subjects in English, such as maths and science, helps immerse the students completely into the English language, improving fluency and understanding. This TEFL course will help you prepare how to teach other school subjects, in English, for both primary and secondary school students.
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an exam created to assess the language ability of non-native speakers of English, who want to study or work where English is used as the main language. This course covers everything you need to know about becoming an IELTS Coach.
Worried that you don’t currently have the skills to head-up a successful TEFL business? Well, this specialist module has you covered! You’ll learn everything you need to know about running a business, from creating business plans and marketing strategies, to managing your finances and working out how much to charge for your services.
One of the biggest challenges of being a freelance TEFL teacher, or setting up your own business, can be finding students to teach! This specialist module will teach you how to market yourself successfully, to help ensure you build a solid client base from the start and increase your earning potential (the more students you attract, the more you will earn!)
You will have 47 weeks of study access. Most people complete the training in 15-24 weeks.
A great question! Basically, the 500-hour Advanced Diploma has it all! It’s quite simply the best course for anything you may want to do in your TEFL career, as it contains all the basic TEFL training you will need plus 7 specialist modules to further increase your TEFL knowledge and ability.
And why do you need such a comprehensive knowledge of TEFL? That’s an easy one! With a 500hr Advanced TEFL Diploma, you’ll have more job opportunities and an unlimited earning potential, as you’ll stand out from the crowd and be able to access the highest paying TEFL roles.
As long as you are able to speak fluent English, have access to the internet, and are eager to learn, there is nothing stopping you from doing this course. And, no, you don’t need a degree either. (2 FAQs for the price of one!)
Yes! This course is fully accredited, as it has been regulated by Ofqual and is approved by the ODLQC (UK) and DEAC (US). And, because of this, the 500hr Advanced Diploma, like all i-to-i courses, is highly regarded by employers all over the world.
You can start earning in just 6 weeks with this course! Once you’ve passed your first 180hrs of study, you’ll be able to get your first certificate. With this certificate, you’ll be able to start teaching some TEFL classes. So, you can earn while you study! And, as you pass more and more modules, you’ll be able to increase your rates in line with your increasing TEFL knowledge and skills.
The main differences are:
To be honest, because you get what you pay for. Cheaper TEFL courses are often poorer quality and lack accreditation. This means you may find that a lot of employers don’t recognise them as valid for paid work (so you’d have to pay for another TEFL course to replace it, and study all over again!) And, if the material in the course isn’t well researched or informative enough, you may feel less prepared for your TEFL role. This can make things a lot more stressful for you in the classroom!
Cheaper TEFL course providers are also often able to offer courses at such a low cost because they aren’t paying additional staff or academic tutors to help their students. And this support is vital, as it can mean the difference between passing and failing the course!
Trust us, investing in a good quality TEFL course is worth it in the long run, as it will get you where you want to be – teaching and earning!
Yes, of course you can! Exact requirements for teaching positions abroad will always vary depending on the visa requirements of the country (and employer) in question. Preferences for the level of TEFL qualification, however, seem to stay the same wherever you’re applying. As a general rule, the higher the level of your accredited TEFL qualification, the more appealing you are to employers overseas. Getting a comprehensive qualification, like the 500-hour Advanced Diploma, can also help boost your application and TEFL CV if you don’t have any prior teaching experience. It shows employers you’ve really committed to learning as much about TEFL as possible!
The 500-hour Advanced Diploma is also really suitable for online teaching, as it will appeal to online employers in the same way it appeals to overseas employers. And, don’t forget, this course also gives you the tools to set up your own online TEFL business! Great knowledge to have in your toolkit, especially for those of you that want to teach long-term! Trust us, it will be much easier to attract students online and market your TEFL skills, if you have the training and high-level TEFL qualification to back you up.
100%! There are two 40-hour specialist modules: How to set up your own TEFL Business (40 hours) and How to market yourself as a TEFL Freelancer (40 hours). These amazing modules will make sure that your dreams of setting up your own online TEFL business become a reality! They will also give you all the tools you need make a real success of it. You’ll be trained in all the basics of business and freelancing, from sorting out your finances to creating marketing campaigns, so you don’t need to have any prior knowledge before starting – win!
TEFL training possible, so we have opportunities for all those that are Level 5 TEFL certified to upgrade their existing qualification to the Level 5 500-hour Advanced TEFL Diploma

It was hard work juggling a full time job and the course. But you need to do what you need to do and it paid off. I enjoyed the course and the must say I learnt a lot.
Just completed my third assignment. The course has been amazing so far, I am learning a lot and the tutors provide very helpful feedback on assignments. I am glad I chose i-to-i TEFL to get certified. Excited to continue learning!

Great content. I've learnt so much. It's made me a better teacher.
My advisor ascertained my needs and established very professionally which course I required. I have only just started the course but it is well-researched, intensive, and expects a high pass rate(75%).
The service was exceptional. They were kind and l felt welcomed. Excellent hospitality!!
