Before making my decision to get my TEFL and teach abroad, I researched heavily into where to get certified. If you are looking for a balance of a quality curriculum, cost efficiency, and personal support, then Premier TEFL is the team for you. I did my 240-hour course over a period of 6 weeks or so, but you have much longer to complete it as needed. Taking my time with the content, and saving the sections for reference later as needed, gave me a strong basis to begin my international teaching career. They provide a solid blend of written and video instruction, and were prompt in answering my weekly badgering of the staff about the little details that inevitably came up. I had several phone conversations before ever making a purchase, and the staff's patience in this assured me I was making the right choice with Premier.
Their accreditation, something anyone seeking a TEFL should not overlook, is world class and will be accepted throughout the world.
To begin my trip abroad I actually stopped by their office in Youghal, Ireland to meet the staff, and was delighted to discover they are just as warm and helpful in person as they were remotely. These are real people who care, and will go the extra mile to ensure you get in the right program regardless of their profit margin. This is rare, and stems from their wonderful business philosophy which Rosie, the head honcho, has instilled in the team.
There are many TEFLs out there, some cheaper, or more expensive, but for me Premier TEFL was the perfect match. They have connections, internships, and advice for all the teaching markets one could ever want, and have created something truly beautiful that enables adventures like mine. If you are dedicated to getting a teaching certificate, but don't know from what program yet, then I wholeheartedly recommend giving Premier TEFL a go as it was an educational and incredible experience from start to finish for me.
