Is the course accredited? How does it differ from Trinity/Celta?

Photo of TEFL Courses in Barcelona, SpainIt is important to choose a TEFL course that is not only accredited, but also moderated by an external accrediting body, i.e. one that sends moderators to visit the course periodically. These external moderators set these certificate courses apart from all others.

The course we offer is internationally recognized, and is externally validated and moderated by IATQuO. There are a number of internationally validated courses available including those moderated by IATQuO, The College of Teachers, Cambridge (CELTA), Trinity or SIT. They are all 4 weeks long and very similar in terms of content.The most important factors for trainees are that the trainers are dedicated, qualified (Diploma in TESOL or equivalent) and have substantial experience, and that the teachers in trainingare given enough teaching practice (a minimum of 6 observed lessons).Otherwise, the difference is mainly in price, corresponding to how expensive the validation is. Cambridge and Trinity are the most expensive, IATQuO, and other similar validating bodies, slightly less so. In terms of getting a job after the course, employers usually require teachers to have an internationally validated certificate.

TESOL/TEFL Certificate Course:
We provide you with a 4 week intensive course, exceeding international standards, with 160 hours of classroom time, including 100 contact hours, and 60 hours devoted to teaching practice (the most important part of any TESOL/TEFL certificate course).

The course is externally validated and moderated by IATQuO. The qualification is widely accepted and well regarded by those within the international TEFL community. IATQuO assessors evaluate and monitor the content and quality of our syllabus, teaching methodology and assessment procedures during regular visits. Students receive a numbered certificate on successfully completing the course.

Location:

Image of TEFL Courses in Barcelona, SpainWe are located in BCN's premises in Gracia in the middle of Barcelona, a central neighbourhood famed for its narrow streets, quaint squares and friendly “small town” atmosphere. The area maintains the look and feel of 100 years ago but is now fashionably bohemian, with an abundance of trendy bars, eclectic restaurants and original shops.

Located on the western shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, has more than 2,000 years of history as a centre of trade and culture. It has a population of 4.5 million people. Mediterranean and European are two defining characteristics of this ancient, modern, calm and vibrant, cosmopolitan city.

A combination of many things make Barcelona such an attractive destination: It’s unique location as a threshold, as it were, between Spain and the rest of Europe, the wealth of history and culture, the superb architecture, the warm climate, the sea and the beaches, the light, the cafés, the excellent food, the people, the relaxed atmosphere, the night life….
