Verdict#1 TEFL certificate for lifetime job search and dedicated support#1 TEFL course for best overall value


  1. I’m a 52-year-old female from SA. Will I be able to teach overseas once I have completed my course?

  2. If I get certified by TTA academy, will I be able to teach in Canadian institutions and schools?

  3. This is misleading, as there are now many other providers regulated by both OFQUAL and DEAC. The TEFL Org is one such provider. So, it’s untrue to say that The TEFL Academy is the “only” provider regulated by both.

  4. Just to let you know, you published the wrong picture under the name of the different schools. It’s confusing.
