About Accreditation

Accreditation is a formal and intensive review conducted to ensure that an educational course is capable of delivering high-quality and effective training. There are numerous certified organizations that are used to assess the caliber of TEFL courses. All BeyondTEFL courses offered by our partners (International TEFL Academy and Premier TEFL) are fully accredited by several independent-acting accrediting bodies in order to fulfill and maintain proficient international standards, advance the development of the foreign language sector, and have a positive impact on the education community, making us a leading provider of high-quality TEFL courses.

Why Accreditation is important

Many online TEFL courses are available, but how many of them are effective in preparing future educators for careers in education? Every certification course must be evaluated to ensure that it is competent enough to teach students the skills required to succeed as an English learner. This is why accreditation is so important, and double-checking the accreditation of any TEFL course you are considering is essential when preparing to enter the classroom. BeyondTEFL wants everyone who completes any of our courses to be confident in their ability to teach and positively impact the lives of students all over the world.
