TravelBud’s TEFL/TESOL courses run by our carefully selected partners are internationally accredited by the Online TEFL and TESOL Standards Agency (OTTSA).
With an accredited course you know that there is a system of checks being made by the moderators on the course provider. This ensures that standards, procedures and materials are appropriate, fit for their purpose, up to date, regularly updated and that there are systems in place to monitor and give feedback on student progress.
To maintain accreditation, OTTSA randomly audit agencies every three months. They then recommend improvements and follow up to assess whether recommendations have been implemented.
