TEFL 170: Boost your online teaching career
Our 170 Hour Combined TEFL Course will give you all the same essential training as our 150 Hour Online TEFL Course – but with the added bonus of 20 hours of practical TEFL training too. Designed especially for those who want to teach English online (as well as abroad), this double-award course will provide you with 120 hours of fundamental TEFL learning on top of a dedicated 30-hour Add-On Course to help you learn to teach English online.
Whether you’re keen to start a career in online teaching, or you just want to gain some experience before jetting off to teach in far-flung TEFL destinations, this course will give you expert preparation for both! Created by our team of highly qualified TEFL tutors, the online portion will take place on our learning platform, which is accessible 24/7 from any device, allowing you to study flexibly around your lifestyle.
When it comes to the practical training, you’ll be able to choose a date and location that suits you. When you enrol, you can either choose the dates or opt for our flexi option, which allows you to choose a date later down the line. Simple! And you won’t need any teaching experience to get started – our courses are specifically developed for those who’re new to teaching, so we’ll take from TEFL newbie to pro in a matter of weeks. With the help of our experienced tutors who’re on-hand on emails, phone or our web chat service, you’ll be qualified and ready to start teaching before you know it.
Very interesting and a great way to better your English and learn new things that you knew before.
