The TEFL Academy review, submitted by Marta.
I’m not a person who normally gives a one-star review, but by the looks of it, I’m also not the only person with deep grievances with The TEFL Academy Dublin. And I just can’t fathom why this company has so many excellent reviews on other TEFL review websites. I have also experienced issues using the Level 5 TEFL certificate issued by this company because the organizations they claim accredit them – QUALIFI, OFqual, AQC, TQUK and the DEAC – are only regulatory boards and are not accreditation bodies. If I wanted to work in the UK, I’d stand a good chance with these brand names listed on my certificate. As it stands though, every single teaching job I’ve applied for overseas has never heard of any of them. The TEFL Academy is not an accredited school outside of the UK. So now I will just need to swallow the $400 I spent on their Level 5 course and take a course which is really internationally recognized. I’ve been recommended to take the teflonlinepro.com course because they are full accredited by ACTEFLC and a number of employers mentioned this accreditation body in my interviews. I really can’t see how the TEFL Academy have such great reviews on other platforms when people can’t use their certificate for teaching overseas. It all smells of one big smelly scam to me.
