Accredited TEFL Courses

INTESOL Worldwide accredited TEFL courses maintain the highest quality assurance standards for TEFL / TESOL training. This ensures that your TESOL certification is accepted and valued by ELT employers all over the world.


ALAP Accreditation

INTESOL Worldwide offers accredited TEFL courses certified by ALAP (Awarding Language Acquisition for Professionals), a UK based Awarding Organisation. ALAP is an accrediting organisation that specialises in the ELT industry.

ALAP is supported by an esteemed Academic Panel who are all experts in the field of English Language Teaching. The ALAP panel oversee matters related to academic quality, ensuring that the value of an ALAP Certificate is upheld.

“The world of education is often marred by questionable certification of academic courses. In order to differentiate between genuine, professional qualifications and those that are produced for commercial gain, it is essential that education companies provide accredited certification. Accreditation is the recognition by an external body that a course and/or training provider has met a certain set of standards and best practice. I am delighted to be associated with INTESOL as the company is an outstanding example of this best practice.”

Gaining an accredited INTESOL TEFL / TESOL certificate through ALAP

What This Means to You, the Student!

  • You receive a graded TEFL / TESOL certificate direct from the awarding body.
  • You receive a Course Transcript from the awarding body.
  • Employers worldwide will know that your course is of a high academic standard.
  • Your accredited TEFL / TESOL certificate course is moderated and the procedures are checked by an external body.

INTESOL Worldwide is the first course provider to offer dual certification and verification direct from the awarding body.
When you receive your electronic TEFL or TESOL certificate from the Exams Office at ALAP, the Awarding Body, you will also receive a letter inviting you to apply for extras to add to your portfolio of certification.
Dual Certification

The terms TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) are interchangeable, but you will find that some schools, even some governments, prefer one of these terms rather than the other.

Verification Letter Option

You can now also receive a verification letter to show a potential employer that your certificate is genuine. This is only available as a hard copy and only with a hard copy of your certificate and course transcript.

Who is Eligible?

These options are open to all INTESOL Worldwide students who complete a TEFL or TESOL course. Past students who have completed an INTESOL TEFL or TESOL course and have been awarded their certificate by ALAP can apply to the ALAP Exams Officer on for retrospective award of dual certification and verification letter.
