Standard Teachers Package

Standard Teachers Package 

Our Standard TEFL Teacher package includes the 120-hour Standard Online TEFL course PLUS the Mentorship Package. By combining these into 1 package, you can save on the retail price of both programs. The 120-hour course is the perfect starting point for your English teaching career. It has been designed for people with little to no prior teaching experience, or experienced classroom teachers without a TEFL/TESOL certification. Whether you want to teach online or abroad, your certification will be recognised and accepted worldwide.

During the course you will learn how to teach grammar, reading, writing, and listening to speakers of other languages. You will also learn about classroom management, how to create lesson plans, and much more. The 120-hour curriculum is the international standard for teaching English and all our courses come with tutor support. This course provides you with the skills and qualification needed to start your new career as an English teacher. This is a self-paced course that includes reading, videos, review questions and practice quizzes as you go along.

After studying all the material, you will complete a final assessment unit, which includes a four-part written assignment and a multiple-choice exam. A score of 70 on both parts will qualify you for your TEFL certificate. The assessment unit can be taken only once, so be sure to prepare thoroughly.

Upon successful completion you will receive a soft copy of your credentials which include your official certificate and an accompanying letter outlining the content of this course.

The mentorship program will also show you how to create your resume, cover letter, and prepare your introduction video so you can apply for jobs with online schools. You’ll also learn how to set up LinkedIn teachers’ profiles to be able to get your own students online. This course is not only useful in setting yourself up as an online English teacher but you can use the skills you’ve learned to do the same for the aspiring online teachers and generate a secondary source of income online. By combining these courses and programs, we can cover all the aspects you need to know to start teaching English online.
