50-hr course in Teaching English Online (CTEO) with tutor support


Until quite recently, the majority of TEFL qualified teachers were employed by schools or language centers in countries outside of their homeland, however, things are rapidly changing. Over the last few years online language learning has surged in popularity and some say it could even overtake traditional classroom based learning in the near future. Having the ability to teach English online gives you the option of working from anywhere in the world, which is perfect for anyone who is not in a position to head overseas. By completing our CTEO course you will learn how to adapt everything you already know about English teaching to suit this booming sector of the TEFL world.

Another real benefit of this particular course is the access you will have to our CTEO graduate network. Once you have successfully completed the course you will be able to interact with dozens of former trainees who are now working as online English teachers for some of the biggest employers in the field.
