What We Do

ACTEFLC accredits online distance learning and in-class international TEFL/TESL/TESOL certification course programs.​

Accreditation is a quality assurance process that programs undergo to confirm that they meet a strict and recognized set of service and operational standards.

Accreditation Process

The first step towards ACTEFLC Fully Accredited TEFL Course Provider status is for the institution seeking accreditation to submit a Company Statement.

The awarding of ACTEFLC Fully Accredited TEFL Course Provider status typically takes anywhere between 2 to 8 weeks.

News & Announcements

The ACTEFLC Board of Directors has voted to move forward with virtual program reviews for the 2021-2022 accreditation cycle, and all program reviews this cycle will be conducted remotely. This means ACTEFLC representatives will not physically visit schools but instead will conduct the reviews by means of video conference, electronic document management systems and email.

ACTEFLC successfully completed all scheduled virtual program reviews in the 2020-2021 accreditation cycle. Our staff and the Commission Executive Committees will continue to closely monitor the details of the virtual reviews to ensure the highest standard of integrity and quality.

Please contact enquiries@acteflc.com with any questions you may have about program delivery or planning for an upcoming review.

We look forward to returning to normal program review visits as soon as possible.
