Premier TEFL

“I have questions about the accreditation”

3 star online tefl review

Level 5 Ofqual regulated Premier TEFL review, submitted by Sean.

Level 5 Ofqual regulated. I have questions about the accreditation.

I was very happy with the course. It’s advertised as being a 168 Hour Ofqual Regulated Level 5 TEFL. It did take me a bit less than the advertised 168 hours to complete the course, but all in all I learned heaps and found the learning materials to be potentially very helpful for the future when I’ll be teaching English overseas. I haven’t used their job placement services yet, what with COVID-19 still being an issue, but looking through their website I see that most people appear satisfied with the job placement route with this company and I think it will save me a lot of time and stress by starting out with the job placement and then going the independent route once I have more teaching experience. Either way, the TEFL course has prepared me for what it said it aims to do. So, with regards to the course structure and content, I have no complaints whatsoever.

A few days ago though, I was looking at Reddit and saw a discussion about whether Premier TEFL are actually accredited by Ofqual, or not. I checked on the UK Ofqual register and didn’t see Premier TEFL listed. A couple of other programs are listed as being Ofqual regulated, but not Premier TEFL. If anyone could shed some light on this for me, I’ll be really happy about it. It’s got me a bit worried.

  1. Sean.

    You should also be made aware that no accreditation exists for online TEFL courses.

    For in-class TEFL courses: yes. For online TEFL courses: no.

    Ofqual isn’t accreditation. It’s a government regulatory body.

    If it turns out that Premier TEFL are not Ofqual regulated, it makes little difference really.

    If a program claims accreditation, they either created the accreditation themselves, or pay a yearly fee to another company who clandestinely created it themselves.
