Course Accreditation

TEFL accredited
There is no single regulatory body for international TEFL courses, making it difficult to assess the quality of one course against another. With this in mind, here at TEFL Courses Ireland we provide certification that is accredited by leading awarding organisations which means our courses are regularly monitored. You can be safe in the knowledge that completing a course with Ireland’s best quality TEFL provider puts a trusted certificate in your hands.
