TEFL/TESOL 180 Teacher Training

Internationally Recognized Initial Teacher training Certification Course

Welcome to CA Institute’s Teacher Training TEFL/TESOL 180-hour Certification Course. Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality of teacher training possible. This philosophy is rooted in the belief that flexible schedules, affordable instruction from the best instructors, and excellent staff support from registration to certification is what leads to every students’ success.

CA Institute is an accredited member of Eaquals and you can be assured that you will receive quality teacher training. With our TEFL/TESOL course you get 150 hours of coursework (face-to-face and self-study) and 30 hours of practicum where you learn techniques for handling a classroom of very young learners all the way up to third agers, from A1 to C1 CEFR levels. This course offers more than a CELTA and acts as a prerequisite for our DELTA and other teacher training continual professional development courses offered through our NILE off-site campus in Brno.

Our TEFL/TESOL certification course is designed for candidates with little or no previous English language teaching experience. It is also taken by candidates with some teaching experience who have received little practical teacher training and by those who want to stay up to date with trends in the world of language teaching.

Our candidates must have English language skills equivalent to at least a B1+ of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). If you do not have valid proof of your level of English, you can take an internationally recognized exam at CA Institute. Although we also suggest having a Bachelor’s degree, it is not completely necessary.
