Our TEFL / TESOL courses

The courses are designed entirely around our students; we keep class sizes small so that tuition is as personal as possible and all students receive as much help and assistance as they might need. Students are encouraged to adopt their own style of TEFL teaching and are given ample class time during the course in which to practice and develop.

Our year-round courses in coordination with ITA  maintain the highest quality assurance standards for TESOL/TEFL training through external accreditation.  This ensures that your TESOL certification is accepted and valued by ELT employers all over the world. These courses lead to an OFQUAL recognised TQUK Level 5 Award Certificate in TESOL.

Our summer courses with TEFL International are internationally validated and externally moderated by Fort Hays State University. In addition, the course is externally moderated on a monthly basis by a Local Board led by Brian Tomlinson, Head of the Post-Graduate, Research and Consultancy Unit at the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. Our aim is always to be ahead in terms of teaching quality and personal attention.

For an overview of the courses, please see our TEFL course information page, and for a more detailed breakdown of subjects/hours, see our section on the TEFL course programme.


Student visa support service

If you are a non-EU citizen, a student visa will make it possible for you to work legally in Spain.

Our experienced staff will provide you with expert support at each stage of the process.

We offer you a variety of affordable courses with which to obtain your student visa. Attending one of these courses will allow you to work legally 20 hours a week in Spain, whilst also being able to travel freely in Europe and anywhere else in the world.


We are happy to arrange accommodation in Barcelona for our TEFL trainees. Our accommodation page has a list of the different options available.
