IMPORTANT: The Abridge Academy TEFL courses will be discontinued on 31st April 2023. To be eligible for the accredited certificate, please ensure you have completed your course before then.
Online TEFL training
In this course, you will learn the core skills you need as an English teacher, including:
- English language and grammar
- Teaching methodologies
- Teaching the core language areas
- Feedback and assessment
- Adapting your teaching for diverse learners
- Lesson planning
- Classroom management
This self-paced course is assessed through a combination of short quizzes and formal written assignments. At the end, you will receive a fully accredited digital 120 hour TEFL certificate.
If you wish, you can upgrade your 120 hour TEFL course to a 130 or 150 hour certificate by completing a 10 or 30 hour assessed teaching practicum. This may be in-person or online. Please see our detailed guide for information on the requirements for this.
Please also feel free to check out the blog posts below with insights from our previous TEFL trainees talking about their teaching placement experiences and activities. Please note that we are not currently coordinating teaching placements directly through Abridge Academy – it is your responsibility to apply for and organise your teaching practicum.
