Teach / TEFL

What is TEFL? TEFL stands for 'Teaching English as a Foreign Language' and is a necessary teaching qualification if you want to teach English abroad. Most paid teaching jobs abroad require that you take a TEFL course, usually a 120 hour qualification, which will equip you with all the teaching skills you'll need to teach English as a foreign language to kids in other countries.

TEFL courses can be taught in-country as part of a paid teaching programme, or can be completed online before you travel. Asia is one of the most popular destinations to do paid teaching work, and if you gain your TEFL qualification you can head out to teach in exciting Asian countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, or South Korea. Our paid teaching programmes all include a TEFL course, so you can start paid teaching, earning money and inspiring kids as you explore new countries abroad - amazing!

If you choose to do your TEFL in-country you can then get paid to teach afterwards. Our paid teaching programme in Thailand includes an in-country TEFL course and help finding a paid job afterwards. Alternatively, you can just gain your TEFL qualification in Thailand and add this valuable qualification to your CV. If you want to open doors to paid teaching around the world, a TEFL is a must-have!

Gain a TEFL qualification online

You can secure your qualification before you travel, work at your own pace and cut down the lead-in time before you can get stuck straight in to teaching abroad.

A TEFL qualification is your pass to teach English all around the world!
