"Can I change the specialist courses to something else?"
Unfortunately not, if there’s a particular specialist course you’d like to complete you can always add it onto your order at a later date. We encourage our TEFL teachers to keep on learning so you might want to add a short course on once you’re in a job, keeping your teaching style fresh.
"I like to learn in a classroom, is there an option to add this onto the course?"
Yes! Simply add one of our 20 Hour weekend courses to your basket. Don’t worry if you don’t know which location to go for we’ve got a flexi-course option which lets you decide the place and date at a later date.
