The idea of travelling overseas and teaching abroad is fascinating for many people. They are excited about the possibility of experiencing new cultures while making a living and perhaps saving as well. However, many other people find earning a living here in the UK by teaching English to international students equally appealing.

The good news is there are many EFL teaching opportunities available in the UK. You could work in summer camps, teach online or work in a language school. Some, with entrepreneurial skills, become self-employed where they teach and train as freelancer.

Holding a nationally-recognised and Ofqual-regulated qualification in the form of the Level 5 TEFL Certificate is a tested and affordable gateway to these pathways for career development.

We at Notting Hill College have developed resources that will make your learning journey for Level 5 TEFL Certificate a smooth and interesting one.
