The TEFL Toulouse course is moderated with monthly visits by the UK based body IATQUO (International Accreditation of TESOL Qualifying Organisations). They only accredit TEFL courses, and you will almost certainly get to meet them in week 4 when you come to do your course with us.
Don’t worry, they are checking up on us, not on you!
Needless to say our course is in line with British Council recommendations for TEFL courses
Since 2009 we have always been successful in gaining accreditation by IATQuO, which means that our course surpasses internationally recognised requirements for TEFL courses, which are:
- A minimum of 100 hours of contact time between the trainer and the trainees, with a balance between theory and practical work
- At least 6 hours of observed teaching practice with real students and indepth feedback
- Suitably (eg DELTA, MA TESOL) qualified and experienced tutors
- Regular moderation visits by a moderating body specialising in TEFL
Taking a course accredited by a reputable body adds the required weight to your TEFL qualification and gives you peace of mind when you book a course. There is an excellent article here on what to avoid and how to choose a TEFL course
“The accreditation that comes with your TEFL certificate carries a lot of weight and I was so pleased to see employers take it seriously.”
