There are many than a few accredited TEFL courses out there. Here is a basic run-down on i-to-i's quite popular 120 hour Ofqual accredited TEFL course and what you can expect. Firstly, this course is purely on line and therefore doesn't involve a practicum or hands on element to the course. (Although they do offer a practicum in their 140 hour course. It substantially increases the price of the course as it involves travel to the actual course location, lodging, food etc.)
The Course is Broken Down into 14 Units Which Comprise the 120 Hour Course Structure
The Second Part of the Course: Content
In this section of the course content is more specifically addressed as it relates to vocabulary and grammar.
The Third Part of the Course: Classroom Management
The Third Part of the Course: Course Assessment
Enrollees are then asked to complete a review and consolidation session. This is graded by a tutor that is broken down into 3 parts.
After submitting the lesson plan and written work for marking, you’ll receive feedback and find out how you’ve done. You’ll have up to three attempts to pass each part, so don’t panic if you don’t hit the grade the first time around and if you fail any part, your tutor will contact you to chat through everything and shore up the weak points in your work and supplement that with help and strategies that are most commonly used in ESL classrooms around the world.
A Bit More on Accredited TEFL Courses and Accrediting Bodies Plus the Wrap Up
Upon completion you will receive a certification of completion and assistance with finding a job or more specifically access to their jobs board. You will find that almost all accredited TEFL courses will provide their graduates with access to a job board to help them break into the wild and wholly world of teaching ESL abroad.
Enrollees need to be aware that accreditation is not a universally held metric like other metrics. In other words accredited TEFL courses use different accrediting bodies. so an Ofqual accreditation that i-to-i uses is not the same as other accrediting bodies like IATEFL or TQUK.
Another thing to keep in mind is that hiring managers don't necessarily view a 160 hour course as being superior to a 120 hour course, even through there may be a practicum involved in the longer course
