Your career in Teaching English as a Foreign Language

What does a Twin Turing Scheme Internship in TEFL look like?

Your career in Teaching English as a Foreign Language

With a career in TEFL, or teaching English as a foreign language, you can make a real difference. While sometimes challenging, teaching is incredibly rewarding: You’ll be able to make a direct impact on English learners of all ages, helping them build confidence and achieve their goals. At the same time, you’ll develop your teaching skills and become certified in TEFL. As a global language, English teaching is high in demand all over the world, meaning a career in TEFL can take you anywhere.

We’ve built long-lasting relationships with our partner companies, so you can trust that you’ll receive high-quality training and experience. We offer a range of language schools in four different locations. Some schools are geared towards adult learners while some are aimed at younger children. Depending on the placement, you’ll be teaching from A1 to C2 (CEFR).
