Emma Talbot, 4-Week Online TEFL Course Graduate
I read lots of blogs and did lots of research and I found that ITA came up as the best company every single time.
The support and knowledge I was given and that I will have access to forever. Without this I don’t think I would have as much confidence when looking at my next steps. I am already using my knowledge to start a career. Not just the teaching aspect, they also give so much great advice on where to start with building your student base and all the possible roots you can go down in your career. Additionally, the practicum is definitely scary at start but I get why it is absolutely crucial to my career as a TEFL teacher. I loved having this opportunity and I have definitely put what I learnt into practice in my new career.
I watched lots of webinars and spoke to my advisor and I have managed to get 2 part time jobs teaching. The great thing is that I am now so knowledgeable on how I can take this further to grow this into a successful business.
Definitely do this course. Use all the resources to your full advantage and ask as many questions as you need to. The teachers are so helpful and knowledgeable, so use this to your advantage. I didn’t work whilst I did the course and I imagine I would not have found it possible because the workload is pretty intense. You also need to attend classes during the day which would be difficult if you were working full time. Check out ITA's part-time online course if you need more flexibility.
