Online TEFL / TESOL Accreditation
Online TEFL / TESOL Accreditation
The investment you are about to make in your TEFL training is important.
After all, it's your money and you shouldn’t throw it away on dubious or non accredited TEFL courses. But how can you tell which online course to take when there are so many options?
This is where ACTDEC comes in. ACTDEC is the Accreditation Council for TESOL Distance Education Courses, is the UK’s leading online TESOL accrediting body, non-profit making and responsible for maintaining professional standards in TESOL distance programmes.
Good news for you...
In the faceless world of the internet, ACTDEC gives reassurance that you won’t be ripped off by unscrupulous TEFL course providers. For example, all ACTDEC accredited TEFL course providers like Global English have to adhere to a strict code of practice, and we are audited by the accrediting body to ensure that we are abiding by the code.
No other accrediting body rigorously audits course providers in this way.
Good news for your employer...
When you complete your TEFL course/TESOL course, will your TESOL certificate/TEFL certificate mean anything to an employer? If not, you’ve just wasted your money. But on a Global English accredited TESOL course, it is ACTDEC that issues your TESOL course certificate.
This means that it stands more chance of being recognised when you go out to find a job. Employers can also check your qualification on the ACTDEC Pass List, something that no other accrediting body does.
And good news for the TESOL profession...
ACTDEC is constantly looking to improve quality and standards in TESOL Distance learning. So you’ll see ACTDEC on their stand at international TEFL conferences such as IATEFL. And they only accredit TESOL courses – so you know that they are specialists in what they do.
With an ACTDEC TESOL certificate, you have the chance of being able to choose where you go and what you teach. So there is no need to look anywhere else for your TESOL qualification. We are sure we’ll send you on your way successfully, backed by a TESOL certificate you can trust.
Choosing a TEFL course/TESOL course provider
You need to know that your TEFL course provider is reputable, and is going to still be in operation when you finish your course. Global English was founded in 1996 and was the first ISO 9000 accredited distance learning TESOL organisation. ISO is an international company standard, acknowledged over 100 countries worldwide. It recognises our commitment to an exceptional quality of service for our students, year in, year out.
Being ISO accredited means that our quality systems and procedures are audited each year. It also helps us when it comes to business, because Global English is trusted to provide quality tuition by language schools and organisations worldwide.
Global English is still one of the only international Distance Learning TEFL/TESOL course providers to give its trainees this guarantee, backed up by an independently monitored company standard.
‘Global English has a clear system in place for dealing with any concerns and complaints that may arise. As an ISO 9000 accredited organization, it is required to meet external standards (for which it is also regularly audited) in terms of how it responds to any grievances that customers might have. All relevant documentation connected with this was made available for the purposes of this audit.
I am very satisfied that Global English goes to appropriate lengths to respond to student grievances and complaints effectively and … also takes steps to prevent issues from arising unnecessarily.’
ACTDEC Auditor, May 2007.
