What is the TEFL Certification

A TEFL Certification allows you to Teach English as a Foreign Language in a foreign country (non-native English speaking country). It’s required in schools and universities who want to hire teachers who have received prior training.

You do not need any previous experience of teaching to undertake this qualification, however, you must have a Bachelor degree in any subject and some free time each week to complete the course.
