The LADO TEFL Certificate is a 135-instructional-hour professional teacher training program that provides the necessary skills and experience to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). The course is internationally recognized, surpassing the most demanding standards for an initial professional certificate program. As a result, LADO TEFL Certificate teachers are in demand by directors and administrators worldwide.
Fully accredited by ACCET, the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training, the LADO TEFL Certificate program qualifies for 13.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which is an unbiased indication of the program’s comprehensive and rigorous training.
LADO’s TEFL Certificate program is truly distinguished by its outstanding personalized attention and support both during and after the course. More than the means to a professional or personal goal, the LADO’s TEFL program grants a lifetime membership in a dynamic, international community. From the first class onward, trainees join a vibrant network of thoughtful, interesting, and inspiring teachers and learners from across the world, all connected through the LADO TEFL Certificate.
When are classes scheduled?
LADO offers you the choice of two different course schedules, a full-time intensive (four-week) program and a part-time (three evenings & Saturday) ten-week semi-intensive program.
They are identical in content, cost, and admission requirements.
How can I use the certificate?
The LADO TEFL Certificate will open doors to an exciting future. For some of our graduates, it represents their start as professional teachers. For others, the certificate offers fresh perspectives on teaching and opens new doors. And for the vast majority, the LADO TEFL Certificate is the passport to a new life living, working, and traveling abroad.
Over 95% of our trainees find employment at schools and locations of their choice, and many do so while still in the program. Graduates of our internationally recognized program are qualified to teach in thousands of schools, institutes, and organizations in the United States and in countries around the world. Some TEFL graduates in the US and abroad also teach and tutor independently at home or in their students’ workplaces. Other graduates, because of their training and continued teaching experience, find positions as administrators and curriculum designers, bi-lingual education professionals, materials writers, teacher trainers and even overseas TV and radio hosts.
Throughout the course and afterward, we advise and assist our trainees in achieving their goals. Many keep in touch with the LADO TEFL staff years after they have left the
course. Graduates seek help with new career goals, job search, or continuing their education and professional development.
A LADO TEFL certificate grants its holder a kind of lifetime membership.
Who takes the course?
Some trainees have an extensive teaching background, while others enter without any teaching experience at all. For some trainees, the program provides the teaching
credentials that open up professional opportunities in schools where they want to work and in countries where they want to live.
Our trainees range from recent college graduates who seek traveling opportunities to people making a mid-career change to retirees in search of fulfilling experiences that keep them active. The program also attracts and trains many non-native English speakers who meet our proficiency and admission requirements.
