TEFL Lab London
TEFL Lab is a dedicated teacher training centre. We specialise in training people to become teachers of English as a foreign language. Our aim is to train teachers right at the start of their career so that they can provide the high standards of English teaching that is on demand throughout the world. With this in mind we've set ourselves three simple goals:
- To encourage intelligent, talented people from a diverse range of backgrounds to choose English teaching as a career
- To give them the best training possible using excellent course materials and inspirational teaching methods
- To send them out in the world confident and fully equipped to teach English anywhere on the planet.
TEFL Lab is located in a beautiful five-storey Georgian townhouse on London's famous Bloomsbury Square, a stone's throw from the British Museum. Overlooking the square to the front and the Duke of Bedford's private gardens to the rear, the building has been sympathetically modernised to retain its character while offering the very latest in teaching facilities. We don't think you'll find a nicer place to study!
The TEFL Academy
The TEFL Academy is the UK's leading TEFL course provider. Our courses are designed to effectively teach our students the fundamental skills to enable them to be successful at teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL).
There are many TEFL course providers operating in the UK. With so much choice, and with such a vast amount of conflicting information available on the internet, it can be hard for prospective TEFL course students to make the right choice. The TEFL Academy's combined 120 hour TEFL course aims to provide students with accurate information, skills and training to ensure they leave the academy with a sound understanding of teaching English, as well as a clearer picture of the TEFL industry as a whole.
The TEFL Academy specialises in TEFL courses and nothing else. TEFL is not only in our name, but it is also the backbone of our academy. All of our trainers are experienced EFL professionals. They have all qualified as TEFL teachers themselves, gained years of actual teaching experience and are now passing on their working knowledge to our TEFL course students.
Accreditation is a major factor that should be considered when choosing a TEFL course. There are many organisations, based both in the UK and abroad, that accredit TEFL courses. When choosing a course you should remember that potential employers are likely to be based outside the UK. This means that accreditation organisations based in the UK may not be recognised by employers abroad. This is why The TEFL Academy is fully accredited by the World TEFL Accrediting Commission (WTEFLAC). The WTEFLAC is an international body that accredits and regulates TEFL courses. In addition we are accredited by TQUK, an Ofqual regulated awarding body.

Cambridge University approved the opening of Teaching House in 2007. With the aim to expand quality English-language teacher training in the United States, Teaching House has opened over 15 center locations and trained over 3,000 new teachers. Teaching House is now the largest provider of Cambridge CELTA courses in the world.
Ensuring the high standards of education that are set by Cambridge University, all Teaching House CELTA courses have a maximum of only 6 trainees working with each trainer. To fulfill this trainer/trainee ratio, the Teaching House staff include over 20 Cambridge University-approved teacher trainers as well as a strong support team based at our headquarters in New York.
In addition to the standard four-week CELTA course format, Teaching House has developed two new formats: the 10-week part-time course which is designed for people who work full-time during the day (the course is run on two evenings a week and on Saturdays); and, the 7-week semi-intensive course (the course is run three days a week), which is run in November and December of each year and designed for people who would prefer to take the course at a slower pace.
In the summer of 2008 Richard Davie graduated from Edinburgh University and moved to Barcelona in search of adventure and new experiences. After several uninspiring teacher training courses and jobs at various language schools he had that ‘eureka’ moment of “wait a minute, I can do this better!” He wanted to provide quality training in small groups, where trainees aren’t lost in a crowd and can feel at home.
He found his perfect location at Languages4Life, undoubtedly the most modern language academy in Spain. Comfortable classrooms, interactive whiteboards, beautiful library, up-to-date MAC computers all make it the perfect home for TEFL Iberia.
And so TEFL Iberia was born in 2012 and has gone from strength to strength, attracting people of all ages and backgrounds to train as teachers and find work in Barcelona.
The goal is to help you along the same path Richard took as a young 23 year old and get you settled in Barcelona with everything you need (a good job, comfortable flat and a social circle) whilst having a great experience along the way. Everyone at the school has done the same journey as you, so you’re in good company!
TtMadrid was started by a team of qualified TEFL teachers and TEFL trainers with extensive experience in the field. We are dedicated to providing quality TEFL teacher training, ensuring our trainees have full support and guidance both during their TEFL course here in Madrid, Spain and after the course.
Our TEFL course in Madrid is geared towards providing trainees with practical teaching experience within an internationally recognized pedagogical framework. Our primary focus is to give teacher trainees an edge when seeking TEFL work in Spain and elsewhere, and the confidence to feel at ease in the workplace. Working abroad and teaching English can be both challenging and rewarding. We give our trainees all the tools they need to become successful TEFL teachers.
The content of our TEFL course is unique. As well as meeting all the requirements set out by the British Council and our Accrediting Body, our program recognizes the importance of business skills. In our experience, this emphasis means that our trainees are well placed to get the best and most well paid teaching jobs whilst working in Madrid, Spain and elsewhere in the world.
