Not all TEFL courses are created equal, and there is no universal standardization, resulting in some very mixed standards of training. We have opted to run the TEFL International course to ensure all GoTEFL graduates are properly trained with a globally recognized certificate, receive hands-on practice in a real Thai classroom, and feel confident to enter the classroom on your own as a new teacher. Good schools expect teachers who have had a thorough review-based training. Furthermore, we sincerely want to give you an excellent start to your TEFL careers when you have finished your contract with us. Where other TESOL certification programs abroad may act as more of a revolving door for teachers-in-training, our staff has put together a 120 hour TEFL course that boasts a large list of successful alumni in Thailand and around the world.
Your TI certificate makes you part of the TI alumni network which can open doors to paid teaching jobs worldwide. It 120 hour TEFL course comprises of the mandatory minimum 6 practicums – where you will get the opportunity to practice your skills with students in a real Thai classroom for 6 full-length lessons. Our team has been certifying TEFL International trained teachers since 2008, through our sister company, UniTEFL International.
