Courses that can get you an Online English Teaching job


The rise of the digital space has resulted in various ways of earning money and online English teaching is one of the most highly sought-after professions. Teaching English online has become very important because it gives both learners and teachers the flexibility to work and learn wherever they want in the world. Below are some of the Courses that can get you an Online English Teaching job:


Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) are increasingly becoming the most essential qualifications required by most schools when hiring English Language Teachers. The course enables learners to learn the foundation skills needed to become an English Language Teacher. The course can be completed online in 2-3 weeks after which one can then earn their TESOL Certificate.


Just like TEFL, the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESL) certification enables you to teach English to non-English speakers. The only difference between the two is where you will be teaching.

Ideally, one would seek a TESL if they plan to teach non-native speakers living in a native English-speaking country. Hence one should seek a TESL qualification if one intends to teach in a country where English is the first language. Examples of these countries include Australia, the US, Canada, and the UK.


The Certificate for English Language Teaching (CELTA) course provided by the University of Cambridge is instrumental in getting an online English teaching job because it has a good reputation as it is well known for its academic prowess.  

Furthermore, the Cambridge CELTA course offers aspiring English language teachers and those who already practice the profession of global Standard English teaching skills and a refresher course in methodology as part of their continuing professional development. The course is designed according to the Cambridge syllabus and guidelines and it is also delivered by highly qualified CELTA tutors to ensure the high quality of the certification provided. The course is also in high demand globally so doing it is almost a guarantee to get an online English teaching job. 


The Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (DELTA) course is similar to CELTA and is offered by Cambridge University’s non-profit assessment department Cambridge English Assessment. This course is restrictive as it is only offered to qualified English teachers who already have one year of experience and should only be sought if one is seeking an assessment from the Cambridge Assessment department.

The English Grammar for Teachers 

This course is provided by the University College London. The course gives teachers skills on how to teach students from primary to tertiary education grammar and how to apply them. This course can help one get an online English teaching job as it applies to various age groups.


The teacher development course certificate in teaching English online provided by Oxford TFL can also help one get a job online. The Teaching English Online course is designed for qualified and unqualified teachers who are teaching or planning to teach in an online environment. The content provided by the course is very practical. It gives qualified and unqualified teachers the chance to practice and develop their skills with a tutor in individual live online sessions. One ends up gaining the strategies that can make their teaching experiences and those skills can help one get an online English teaching job. 

The courses mentioned are all highly recommended and they are all instrumental in gaining global standard qualifications for online English teaching.
