The best TEFL jobs are sought after and there is competition for the most highly paid roles. Our specialist modules allow you to broaden your horizons and have the most competitive CV possible.
The Teaching Young Learners course from TEFL Scotland is suitable for newly qualified EFL teachers and also experienced tutors.
What are the benefits of the 30-Hour Teaching Young Learners Course?
Teaching young people up to the age of 16 can be challenging but it is also one of the most rewarding TEFL experiences, with the potential to make a real difference to the lives of others.
We teach you how to use the most successful teaching methods for this particular age-group like interactive videos, fun activities and group involvement with tutor-assessed modules which will give you the skills you need to get the best from your young learners.
Also, unique to TEFL Scotland, we've included a unit which covers teaching to very young learners of between 3-5 years.
Along with indispensable lesson plans and tips to take with you, having your TEFL qualification in teaching young learners will give you the edge over other candidates and make you much more employable.

We will always encourage you to think about what you have learned and share with others while you can also read about the experiences of your peers and interact with them.
