TEFL in Cebu | TEFL Philippines | ITTT

TEFL International’s center in Cebu sits only minutes from white-sand beaches and crystal blue waters. As one of the most highly developed provinces in the Philippines, Cebu acts as the heart of education, trade, and commerce for the central and southern portions of the archipelago.

Despite all its growth, Cebu has retained its culture as well. It’s this combination of factors that makes Cebu an incredibly dynamic and exciting choice of location for your teacher training.

Aside from careful development and great seascapes, Cebu comes from a distant past. 30,000 years ago the area was a series of land bridges that played a critical part in the migration of humans. When the bridges were covered with ocean, the island of Cebu was formed. Ferdinand Magellan visited the area in 1521 but before that, trade with China was well established. Known as the ‘Queen city of the South’, Cebu City has gone on to become a thriving, highly urbanized center.

The city has a lot to offer anyone who chooses to stay a while. It’s proven itself as an extremely popular destination and presents unique opportunities for anyone who wishes to stay and teach here.

Cebu has amassed an array of eateries, shopping outlets and golf courses. It also boasts white-sand beaches. What more do you need to enjoy your free time while you gain your certificate to teach English?

Enrolling in TEFL International’s certificate program in Cebu is an excellent way to take in the Philippines’ most popular destination firsthand.

    Course deposits must be paid to our administrative center. Credit/debit card payments are the fastest and cheapest way to pay, but we also accept payments via Western Union, Pay Pal and bank transfer. While there are no deadlines for a deposit, courses can fill up quickly and your seat will only be reserved after the deposit has been paid.

    Once you make your deposit, you will receive an email with an informational packet that provides detailed information about the course and Cebu itself.

    The balance of course fees is payable in cash (US dollars or Philippine peso) on the first day of class. Alternatively, you can pay via bank transfer but these payments should be made at least two weeks in advance of the course’s start date.

    Course fees are all-inclusive so you won’t be asked to pay additional costs for course related materials or services. This also includes course moderation and accreditation fees, airport pick-ups* and lifetime job assistance.

Visitors to the Philippines from the United Kingdom, USA, Australia and New Zealand can stay in the Philippines for a maximum of 60 days without a visa and this can easily be extended.

The first class will take place on Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. The full course schedule will also be provided on Monday morning. Sessions generally run between 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. with appropriate breaks throughout the day.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    We use local Filipino students for the trainees’ teaching practice. The students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we don’t charge them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to!

    Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will also receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?


    We average around 16 trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?


    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
