Four Vantage TEFL Certification Options

The In-Class / Zoom Course

Vantage's 120-hour In-Class course lasts four weeks and has six key areas of study.

You learn both teaching theory and how to facilitate your lessons through the communicative approach to language teaching—an international standard, which is being adopted by Thailand's Ministry of Education for Thai English teachers kingdomwide.

 

We strongly believe in learning by doing. You will teach real students under observation for at least 6 hours in our practicum. 

Vantage was #1 worldwide as the Top TEFL Course in the Community Choice Awards by gooverseas.com. And a Winner again in 2019.

Vantage Zoom TEFL

You can now attend the In-Class Course two ways. You can do a traditional face-to-face course in a classroom. Or you attend the same course virtually in real-time via Zoom where you will fully interact with the trainers and fellow students. Learn how here.

The Hybrid Combined Course

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.

The Virtual Vantage Course

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.

Knowing Does Not Make You Skilled

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

 

Skills are applied knowledge that 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.

All Vantage TEFL programs include a practicum—delivered either online or in a traditional classroom.

 

We do not believe you can be properly trained as a teacher without the real experience you gain in observed teaching practices.  ​

Thai Covid Information

We get a lot of questions about what is happening in Thailand regarding the coronavirus crisis and if it's possible to travel here.

 

We have created our Thailand COVID-19 Crisis Information page with the most trustworthy and up-to-date links and details on how Covid is affecting Thailand—everything in one single place.

The good news is yes, it’s still possible to enter Thailand.

We have also linked the 5 step process of what you need to do to come here.

And this:

The Education Ministry plans to recruit 10,000 English teachers to improve Thai students' proficiency in the language as soon as the situation is safe to do so. He first said this in February and reiterated it again in September.

It looks like Thailand will be hiring a lot of teachers once the coronavirus crisis winds down.
