Our in-class TEFL certification courses are externally validated and moderated by a Board of Academic Advisors. This board includes several internationally recognized experts in the field of EFL teaching, as well as dozens of regional experts in language teaching and teacher training. Both international and regional members regularly advise the staff at our teacher training centres worldwide.
The international members of the board regularly visit our centres worldwide and participate as keynote speakers at national teacher training conferences and workshops. They also provide us with advice on the quality of our training programs and how our programs can be adapted to keep pace with the growing trends in language teaching. Our international board members are not moderators, but industry experts that advise our centres and participate in teacher training initiatives.
Our regional board members are trained specialists with more than five years’ experience in teacher training and managerial positions. Regional members visit our centres monthly to moderate each course and to ensure that it is of a high quality and meets the required industry standards, as well as to ensure the satisfaction of our trainees. A regional board member is not a staff member, but rather a paid external consultant that moderates our courses monthly by visiting our centre in the region where they have a detailed knowledge of the local industry needs. The regional moderators meet with training staff and course participants; review course participants’ work and check that the centre’s resources are of the required standard.
