Are TEFL courses accredited? - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ITTT TEFL & TESOL


Identifying a good TEFL course and a great course provider with sound graduate services is becoming increasingly difficult. One way to gain some perspective is to check the accreditation that a course possesses, as well as independent reviews of the course.

Without external accreditation, the qualification and manner in which it was achieved could come under scrutiny when applying for jobs and work visas. After all, governments and schools want English teachers to be skilled and of significant benefit to their students. The provider of the accreditation should be an independent third party that is recognized for being able to assess the quality of the training and the professional standards of...  [Read more]
