Step by step guide to teaching English abroad

With all of the courses available today, it isn’t easy to understand which one is the best. However, this simple list explains how to become an accredited English language teacher.

The reality of all the courses you will find is that there are only two globally recognised and accepted TEFL certificates, the CELTA and the Trinity CertTESOL.

If you do not have a CELTA or a Trinity CertTESOL, your job prospects and, in some cases, your work permit possibilities are limited.


step 1 contact ebc

step 2 video call

2. Meet and talk

Finalise your schedule with your dedicated EBC student advisor who will assist and guide you from this moment through to getting your job teaching English abroad. You will get plain, realistic and practical advice about: teaching English abroad, costs, pay, travel, visas, documents, health insurance, housing and more.

step 3 apply

3. Apply

Fill out a simple form to apply for your chosen course. We will process your application within two working days. We send you a confirmation and instructions about the Trinity College pre-acceptance process.

step 4 admission interview

4. Admissions interview

The admissions interview is a Trinity College London entrance requirement. It makes sure that you are happy with your chosen course and that EBC can justify your enrolment on a Trinity College London course.

step 5 enrol and pay

5. Enrol and guarantee your course place

You must send a deposit or the entire course payment to enrol and guarantee your course place. You may do this through our secure online payment system or bank transfer. Once your payment is received, your place is guaranteed.

step 6 travel

6. Travel

If you are coming to Madrid, book your travel tickets and get ready to go. If you need accommodation, we can provide it. We can give non-legal advice about visas and other bureaucracy. If you want a student visa for Spain, we can help to arrange for it. Visas are given by governments not by EBC.

step 7 train

7. Train

Take your classroom-based course or virtual classroom course. You will be a Trinity College London CertTESOL or CertPT certified TEFL teacher when you pass the course.

step 8 teach

8. Teach

On the day you pass, you may ask EBC to send your CV to English language schools using our lifetime, proactive, worldwide job placement service. You should be interviewing and teaching within a few days of finishing your classroom-based course.
