Your year course includes an accredited TEFL certificate, and advanced TEFL Certificate, a ton of Spanish classes and the ability to get paid work placements as part of your course.
You start off with our hybrid TEFL Course (online and on-site in Madrid), where you will gain the skills to teach English as a Foreign Language.
Next, you will have 4 weeks of Spanish and cultural classes at LAE Madrid, our Spanish school which is an Instituto Cervantes-accredited school.
The rest of the year, you will enjoy Spanish classes in the evening so you can really improve your Spanish while working as an English teacher in Madrid.
Your Advanced TEFL Certificate course begins after your Spanish course and is online so that you can combine it with your teaching placements.
Level 5, accredited hybrid TEFL course
Our flexible hybrid TEFL course provides you with a Level 5 Qualification in just two weeks on-site at our school in Madrid, with an interactive online preparation course accessible as soon as you sign up. After the two-week intensive program on-site in Madrid, you’ll be fully prepared to start working as an English teacher anywhere in the world.
Our on-site practical course is efficient and intensive so you make the most of your time with us
With homework most nights, it is hard work and is very intensive but we will support you throughout the whole course. We have checks and balances during the 2 weeks to make sure you are on track for success.
The most important thing to know is that we are 100% focused on making your time with us worthwhile and fulfilling so that you learn what you need to step into a classroom and start this phase of your new career.
