The overall mission of INTESOL is to help people from a broad range of backgrounds achieve a varied and fulfilling lifestyle through teaching English and living abroad.
Our aim is to help you develop and grow as a person by showing you how to become a confident, well-resourced, professional ESOL/EFL teacher.
Through continuing research and development INTESOL seeks to be the world leader in quality TESOL/TEFL training; TESOL/TEFL training that takes into account the demands of every day life.
Thousands of INTESOL graduates have studied for a variety of reasons, but primarily:
- To fulfil their dream of living and working overseas
- To enjoy a change of career
- To further their career and personal development
Or to simply flex their minds!
Typically, INTESOL helps those wishing to enjoy a TEFL career break, career change or develop their current TEFL teaching career. With no upper age limits (you must be 18 or over) and no previous teaching experience required, we attract a broad mix of students.
We are ranked amongst the top TEFL course providers for the quality of our teaching so, whatever your reason for studying, you’ll find yourself in expert hands.
With INTESOL you have the opportunity to gain your accredited TEFL certificate using our excellent online learning platform.
INTESOL students have the opportunity to use our excellent online learning platform to gain the best TEFL/TESOL knowledge and to obtain their certificate.
You will be learning in your own time, by reading course material, working on course activities and completing tasks.
INTESOL uses a carefully structured approach to learning and will help you every step of the way. Your personal tutor will support you. With each returned module you will receive feedback and comments from your trainer to keep you up to date with your progress, giving advice and guidance for future modules.
Onsite intensive TESOL/TEFL courses have long been the traditional route to getting qualified before teaching English abroad. We have a choice of locations in the TEFL hot spots of the World, which means you can coincide your TESOL/TEFL course with the beginning of your new overseas adventure.
Whilst our 4 week onsite TESOL/TEFL courses have always been popular, most students require greater flexibility due to work or family commitments. These students benefit greatly from being able to study part-time, working from home or wherever it’s convenient. Our unique method of study using our excellent online learning platform means that you can set your own timetable around the way you live.
We provide top quality teaching materials, regular feedback on your progress and help whenever you need it.
From the start, you will be in touch with our support centre and you will be allocated a personal tutor.
In the early years, many INTESOL distance TESOL/TEFL course trainees asked us how they could enhance their skills and confidence before going live in the classroom. In response to this need, we pioneered flexible TESOL/TEFL training methods unrivalled by any other TESOL/TEFL course provider. You can choose to combine your online theory learning with online teaching practice to get a feel for teaching in a classroom.
TESOL/TEFL qualifications awarded by INTESOL are recognised by TEFL institutions worldwide. They are the mark of your academic success but also have added value because they show that you have commitment, ambition and self-discipline – qualities important to prospective TEFL employers.
Over the last 27 years, language schools all over the world have encouraged and sponsored their staff to take INTESOL TESOL/TEFL courses.
INTESOL Worldwide TESOL/TEFL courses are accredited by ALAP (Awarding Language Acquisition for Professionals), a UK based Awarding Organisation. ALAP is an accrediting organisation that specialises in the ELT industry.
“The world of education is often marred by questionable certification of academic courses. In order to differentiate between genuine, professional qualifications and those that are produced for commercial gain, it is essential that education companies provide accredited certification. Accreditation is the recognition by an external body that a course and/or training provider has met a certain set of standards and best practice. I am delighted to be associated with INTESOL as the company is an outstanding example of this best practice.”
