I've been thinking about taking this TEFL course in my final year at uni, as I'll be applying for PGCE's, and want a second option if I don't manage to get on to a course for 2014! So has anyone done this particular course? As I understand that there seem to be many different types of TEFL course, so I don't know which one is the best! But this one is 140 credits, which is the highest amount of credits that can be taken? Is it worth £300? Or should I look elsewhere?

Get a hold of tefl.org.uk
They are the best ones for the UK. Highly recommend you do the classroom based versus the online though. There are different levels as well.

TEFL = Teaching English Foreign Language
TESOL = Teaching English Speakers Other Languages
ESL = English Second Language

CELTA and DELTA are the big ones. They are highly sought after in the TEFL world and would probably guarantee you a position anywhere that is looking for EFL teachers.

TEFL, TESOL will equip you with the basic skills to teach English and to run a classroom and setup lesson plans, etc. With a bit of extra brain power you can go a long way with those. Don't expect a high level position in the beginning though. And if you want, this can be made into a very rewarding career.
