Does one body award TEFL internationally?

The answer is no, there is not one international body which accredits or awards TEFL certificates, and this leads to there being a huge number of TEFL certificates on the market, all of which carry different standards, certifications, or accreditation.

Ultimately, it has to lie with the consumer to check out the accreditation, look at the standards and research the recognition of the certificate worldwide. TEFL Exchange doesn’t offer TEFL Certificates, but we do refer our readers to our partners, who we think are some of the best on the market in terms of all these factors.
