- Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking (4 core skills)
- Grammar, Lexis, Functional Language, Pronunciation (Language Systems)

“The 220-Hour Level 3 TEFL Course is an Ofqual regulated internationally recognised TEFL / TESOL qualification accepted by employers around the world.”
Course requirements and what you need to start
The 220-Hour course assumes no prior teaching experience and is most suitable for new teachers who want to start off their teaching career. We also strongly believe that the course will be of great value to those with some teaching experience who would like to hone their skills.
The qualification does not require candidates to have a degree. However, we require non-native speaker candidates to have a minimum of CEFR (The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) B2 level of English.
Non-native speaker candidates who do not hold a certificate of language proficiency will have to attend a telephone interview with a TEFL adviser, and may be asked to submit an essay in order to assess their level of language ability.
If you are uncertain that you will be able to meet the language proficiency requirements, we recommend you to take the 180 Hour TEFL Certificate first, you will be able to upgrade your qualification later with us.
We have a free grammar test that can help you to assess your English language level.
The course can be taken on PC/laptop/tablet/smartphone devices anytime and anywhere with internet access.
Chances are you already have everything you need to start your course. Both the course and the Gallery Teachers website have 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 webcam for online meeting with your tutor and webinars
- A notebook for making notes and drafting answers
- Acrobat Reader DC installed on your device
High quality and authentic downloadable materials are also available to support offline learning.

What is included in this Course
Apart from its 11 Core Modules, the 220-Hour Level 3 Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Course also includes the Gallery Teachers 20-hour Language Awareness 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 module throughout the course as a reference.Also included is our popular Basic Safeguarding Awareness Course which will boost your CV as respectable employers around the world will most probably require you to have a safeguarding certificate.
Furthermore, this course will give you a one year full access to the Gallery Teachers CPD Library that includes over 100 webinars delivered twice weekly, workshops and live sessions, with some presentations designed specifically to supplement different Core Modules, while others will help you develop beyond the course.
Finally, you will have an opportunity to join the Gallery Teachers community and share ideas and experiences with other TEFL trainees as well as more experienced teachers from around the world via our Discussion Forums.
At the end of the course, you will get an Ofqual Accredited Certificate issued jointly by Gallery Teachers and telc, including your full name, the total number of hours of TEFL training you have completed, course modules, date and an individual verification number.
Embossed hard copy certificate is also available free of charge (postage fee not included).
Most TEFL courses you find online are NOT regulated or recognised at all. While a few are “endorsed” by an Ofqual regulated organisation, this is not the same as a regulated course. Only regulated qualifications from a reputable provider give you the assurance that your achievement is real and authoritative.
