• Christian TEFL

    Christian TEFL is an organisation that is very different from other TEFL training providers.

    We train people to teach English via our accredited online TEFL courses and then we point our graduates in the direction of mission partners, who are seeking volunteers to teach English in a mission setting. So we aim to be a meeting place for those who want to serve Christ through TEFL and organisations engaged in doing just that. 

    But the real difference is that we are a Christian charity (registered charity number 1145857) and as such, we give all our profit to our partner organisations, so that your course fees go in the most part to helping to spread the gospel.

    Through our sister organisation Global English TESOL we’ve been training people to teach English since 1996 (and teaching English ourselves for several years before that!). Everyone here is a former or current EFL teacher so we like to think we can give you the best quality training of any online TEFL training provider.

We know this because we researched all of them and found ITA’s online course to be head and shoulders better than anything else out there. It is the reason why we partnered with them when creating our hybrid TEFL course
