Choose the right certificate for you
We work in partnership with telc (The European Language Certificates) to provide Ofqual-regulated qualifications. Ofqual is the UK government department responsible for qualification, examinations and assessments. Our Ofqual-regulated qualifications offer:
- final assessment externally marked by telc
- qualification level recognised on the National Qualification Framework and Regulated Qualification Framework
- qualification credits recognised by, and often transferrable to, other educational institutions
- recognition in the UK and Europe as part of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
If you are unsure which version to choose, you can start with the Professional Version and opt-in to the Ofqual framework in the future.

Have a question?
This qualification is at an initial teacher training level and is offered to native and non-native speakers of English who are at least 18 years old and are looking to start a career in English teaching. The qualification does not require candidates to have a degree and it assumes no prior teaching experience.
If you are a student looking at taking a gap year before or after university, or someone thinking of a career change, or perhaps you and your family would like to relocate abroad and you are looking to start your career in teaching English, our TEFL course will give you the necessary foundation on which you can build as you gain experience through practice.
You can register and start the course at any time by clicking on the Start Now button. Follow the payment process until you have completed your purchase. The course can then be found in the “My Courses” section which you can progress to immediately.
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 a comfortable screen size for the best learning experience.
Apart from this, we also recommend that you have:
- A stable internet connection for video content
- A webcam for online meetings with your tutor and webinars
- 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.
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 is 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.
The truth is, you get what you pay for. Quite often you will find courses with poorly compiled and organised PDFs 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 is a well-known brand in the EFL industry and your certificate will carry more weight with employers.
Regulated qualifications from a reputable provider give you the assurance that your achievement is real and authoritative.
The certificate you will receive on completion of our Level 3 and Level 5 TEFL Certification Courses will contain the UK Regulator’s (Ofqual) logo along with the full qualification title and qualification number.
Some of the TEFL courses you find online are not regulated despite promoting as one. While some claim “endorsed” by an Ofqual-regulated organisation, this is not the same as being regulated.
You can check for Gallery Teachers or other providers on the Ofqual Registers, if you can’t find it, then chances are the course is not regulated.
Both versions contain the same high-quality material. The difference is that the Ofqual version has an externally examiner-marked final assessment and offers RQF credits. Find out more …
This qualification is highly recognised worldwide and is suitable for candidates looking to start teaching EFL in most countries.

I found this very helpful
I found this very helpful overall. I did have to investigate some grammatical terms outside of the site in order to complete some of the tasks. It therefore may be worth just reviewing that all the necessary information for each chapter is included.
The course is great and useful for me

A well designed course for new teachers!
This is well designed for its stated purpose: a course to prepare for the main teacher training course.
The units are comprehensive and the difficulty level is just right. I completed this course quickly, but it definitely had the effect of making me think afresh about language and grammar.
