Our TEFL training center in Cebu is only minutes from pristine beaches and crystal blue waters. Cebu is one of the most highly developed provinces in the Philippines and it serves as the heart of education, trade, and commerce for the central and southern portions of the archipelago.
The city has a lot to offer anyone who chooses to stay a while. It has established itself as a popular tourist destination and presents unique opportunities for those who wish to stay and teach here.
Cebu has also amassed an array of eateries, shopping outlets and golf courses. While completing the course, trainees are never far from modern conveniences and of course the surrounding area is very safe for independent travelers.
Enrolling in our TEFL certificate program in Cebu is an excellent way to see Cebu and take in all it has to offer.
Our course in Cebu has been recognized as the only intensive TEFL training center in the entire country of the Philippines. It is recognized by Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), a Philippine government agency that monitors all training centers in the Philippines. We’ve been able to establish good relations with our participating schools and offer great opportunities for our TEFL graduates--both local and foreign nationals.
In addition to certifying trainees as TEFL teachers, we also offer worldwide lifetime job support so we can help course graduates find teaching work in the Philippines or anywhere else there is demand for qualified EFL teachers.

What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We use local Filipino students for the trainees’ teaching practice. The students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we don’t charge them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to!
Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will also receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

We average around 16 trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:
Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.
Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
