Why English Language Centre (CIC)?

It is no secret that there are some unscrupulous businesses around offering sub-standard TEFL courses, and sometimes just outright scams. English Language Centre (CIC) is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC Inc Number: 07669567), which means that any profit made has to be reinvested back into our stated aims of tackling unemployment and providing educational/training opportunities. We work in partnership with charities and Government bodies throughout the UK, and
our senior team has successfully trained more than 6000 teachers over a period of 20+ years - you're in safe hands.

Our specialist TEFL Programmes are designed to be more than just a standard Course. They have been created with the express purpose of helping talented young people into interesting, meaningful work as an English Language teacher abroad. As a Social Enterprise, our primary aim is to help people learn skills that lead directly to meaningful employment, and that priority is the keystone of our TEFL Programmes and everything else we do. To that end, our Programmes combine a carefully structured online Course supported by an experienced Personal Tutor, with access to our expert in-house Careers Service.

Offering high-quality Programmes isn't enough though, if they aren't also accessible and affordable. All our TEFL Programmes are delivered by distance learning which is very cost-effective and means that anyone with access to the internet, wherever you might happen to be, can take advantage of them. This also means that you can work at your own pace, at a time that suits you. This flexibility is absolutely vital for many of our students, who may be balancing our Programmes with existing commitments like a full-time Degree and a part-time job! 

As a Social Enterprise, all of our profits are reinvested back into providing more opportunities and this means we can offer a 25%  subsidy to ALL unemployed/underemployed Graduates and Students, as well as a number of full scholarships
