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 skill set you'll need to be successful in the classroom.

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

Online TEFL Study + Online Live Streamed Classroom Teaching


Introducing one of the TEFL industry's first completely virtual courses—that’s 100% online.

​This is a fully accredited TEFL featuring both online training with live-streamed classes of observed teaching practices (OTPs) with real students. 

In Phase One, you'll first complete the online coursebook.


Then, in Phase Two, you'll develop your teaching skillset through real teaching sessions (the practicum) of six OTPs in a virtual classroom.

As you practice teaching online in Virtual Vantage, you’ll also become experienced in the video conferencing software and teaching techniques for the online platform, giving you a strong foundation in one of the fastest-growing segments of the teaching market.

The Virtual Vantage 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 skill set 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.  ​

Key Bangkok Information

A TEFL Treasure Trove

Vantage’s English Teaching Roadmap is a TEFL guidebook that's a gold mine of information.


The introduction makes a strong case for why it’s worth investing in a certified training program. The next section explains basic concepts in simple, clear language and how the program works.


The section on ‘the world of English teaching’ is factual and up to date and shows how teaching English can be a great career platform.


The final section offers all the information you need to navigate Thai Immigration, living and learning in a foreign culture, and most important, getting your first job. 

I highly recommend reading this Roadmap before you make any decision about paying for any course on teaching English.
