TEFL course accreditation

The TEFL Toulouse course is moderated constantly 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.

Needless to say our course is also 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. Every month! The main 3 requirements for TEFL courses – and therefore what you should look for in a TEFL course – outlined by the British Council 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
