Level 4 Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (CTEFL)

The PQS Level 4 Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (CTEFL) is in-depth accredited TESOL training course for career minded people.

It is an entry level course designed for those who are:

  • ⦁ are new to EFL and want a thorough grounding in TESOL/TEFL
  • ⦁ want a qualification above the industry average number of hours
  • ⦁ are already teaching but want to formalise your experience
  • ⦁ are looking for a course independently accredited to a high level 


Why this course?

Since an industry standard qualification is around 120 hours, a 150 hour qualification can help you to stand out and so is ideal for more competitive locations such as Europe.
It also allows for more understanding across the TESOL essentials: grammar, lesson planning and more. 
This is a more enhanced version of the 120 hour Level 3 BTEFL.
