Three Vantage TEFL Certification Courses

Our Hybrid Combined Course gives you the best of both worlds.

Your online study of the coursebook—with full tutor support—will concentrate on teaching theory and best practices. You will then combine that with observed practice teaching sessions (the practicum) where you’ll teach non-English speaking students in a real Thai classroom.

The practicum is where your course knowledge is transformed into teaching skillset you'll need to be successful in the classroom.

Vantage’s Combined Course was ranked #1 in The 9 Best Online TEFL Courses.

The In-Class Course

Knowing Does Not Make You Skilled

The practicum—observed teaching practices—is where knowledge is transformed into teaching skills.


Skills are applied knowledge and can only be developed through practice. That’s why live practice teaching is essential—especially for new teachers. It's the heart and soul of a professional-class TEFL program.

Trainees teach non-English speaking students in a live classroom—a minimum of 6 class hours—each lesson on a different language topic.


You get valuable feedback from our experienced trainers after each session as your new teaching skillset begins to develop.

Both Vantage’s In-Class Course and our Combined Course include a practicum.


Virtual Vantage has a streamed online practicum in real-time with real students.  ​

Thai schools have reopened (on July 1st). Normally the new Thai academic year begins in early May.

A number of teachers left Thailand in late February and early March as the crisis intensified. We are speculating that a significant percentage will not return, opening even more positions for newly TEFL certified teachers.
