What is the 180 Hour TEFL Course
The 180 Hour TEFL Course is a great option if you are just starting out or want to take a short career in teaching English while travelling the world. It is also a perfect course for those who are on a tight budget wanting to complete their TEFL training in the shortest time possible.
The Course will be sufficient to prepare you to start your TEFL career, by equipping you with the necessary knowledge and skills that are essential to newly qualified teachers in order to help you avoid mistakes of unprepared and uninformed teaching.
It is a straightforward 100% self-paced course that will teach you how to use basic teaching techniques as well as how to plan effectively and how to select and design materials for your students.
The content of the course is dynamic and relevant, with live lessons allowing you to experience teaching strategies in action. These teaching videos are building blocks to prepare you for the real teaching experience.

Chances are you already have everything you need to start your course. The course has been adapted to cater for access using a variety of computer devices regardless of what country you are in. We do however recommend that you use a device with comfortable screen size for the best learning experience.
Apart from this, we also recommend that you have:
- A stable internet connection for video contents

- A notebook for making notes and drafting answers
- Acrobat Reader installed on your device
High quality and authentic downloadable materials are also available to support offline learning.
The truth is, you get what you pay for. Quite often you will find courses with poorly compiled PDF or e-books and without any face-to-face training with an experienced trainer. These courses will not prepare you for starting a career in teaching English as a foreign language.
Gallery Teachers TEFL Courses have been developed specifically for the online learning environment, utilising both self-paced interactive learning material and live workshop for content delivery.
Our Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Course also includes the Gallery Teachers 20-hour Language Awareness & Grammar Course as an introduction to grammar rules and terminology that will boost your confidence and pre-course knowledge, by raising your language awareness.
This is important because the TEFL course is a teaching methodology programme, not a language course; therefore, there will be no explicit grammar teaching during the course. There will however be references to grammar terminology and concepts throughout the course, in particular in the Teaching Grammar Module. The Language Awareness Course will give you an overview of grammar and help you understand the important grammar points in order to prepare you for the course.
You will have access to the grammar course throughout the course as a reference.
At the end of the course, you will receive a Gallery Teachers certificate with an individual verification number. Embossed hard copy certificate is also available free of charge and can be posted worldwide on request.
The 180-Hour TEFL certificate issued by Gallery Teachers and is recognised worldwide and usually sufficient for obtaining English teaching jobs in most non-majority English speaking countries. This certificate can be verified and notarized just like our level 3 and level 5 certificates.
This course contains the same high-quality material as the level 3 Ofqual regulated course, allowing you to upgrade to the Level 3 Ofqual regulated qualification seamlessly. All you have to do is to pay a upgrade fee of £98.
