Another great benefit of completing a TEFL course with ITTT is that you can issue your students with a high-quality certificate of completion once they have finished a series of lessons. Your certificates allow you to fill out the name of the student, the level of the classes they attended, and the number of study hours. The certificates also have a unique identification number and a section where you can include your own ITTT TEFL certification number. Once issued, your students and anyone who takes an interest in their English language skills will be able to see that they were taught by a legitimate EFL teacher.
Being in a position to issue official certificates of course completion is a great way to stand out from the crowd if you are working in an area where the competition for students is high. Working towards a certification of any kind is also a great way to motivate students in the classroom. No matter where you end up teaching English, the option of being able to issue course completion certificates is another great tool to have in your EFL teacher’s toolbox.
