Who we are

We have been helping teachers achieve internationally recognized qualifications in TESOL for over 10 years. We work with training centers around the world to connect trainee teachers with high quality courses to enable them to travel, train and teach in different countries.

We understand that choosing a quality TEFL/TESOL course can be a difficult task. Our aim is to bring a wide range of teacher training courses (CertTESOL, CELTA) to one place so that it is easy for teachers to make an informed decision about the best course for them.

Language Point Training Courses

Language Point Teacher Education is working with Xplore TEFL to bring a range of teacher training and development courses to teachers who would not otherwise have access to this level of training. With Language Point’s blended and online courses, which focus on teachers working in their specific educational context, and Xplore TEFL’s longstanding relationships with education providers, TESOL organisations and other institutions, we are able to reach more teachers than ever before, bringing the benefits of truly sustainable training to the teachers who need it. Contact us to become a partner center, or to talk about group and individual enrollments on our range of TESOL and teacher development courses.

Our Trainers

Our team of world-class teacher educators specialize in a very wide range of fields within education, and are all qualified to a post-graduate level in TESOL and education related subjects. From young learners to CLIL, STEAM, e-learning and Academic English, our tutors develop the specific classroom skills which teachers need in their context.

Train where you teach

If you want to train to teach English anywhere in the world, why not enroll on an accredited course in the region where you want to travel? Our partner centers operate in 35+ countries, and provide different types of training to meet the needs of teachers in those regions, and those wanting to enter the wider international field of TESOL.

Train, live and work anywhere in the world

XploreTEFL liaises with training providers to meet your specific course and travel needs. We can help you to communicate with different training providers to help you organize your visa, accommodation and training to a timescale that suits you, which means you have more time to focus on your performance on the course you attend.
