The year 2023 marks 25 years since Oxford TEFL first opened its doors to aspiring teachers and language learners. Since 1998 we have been trusted by over 5000 teachers to provide them with high-quality teacher training courses which have made a significant impact in their lives.
So, we would like to thank you. And we would like to thank all future Oxford TEFL trainees and graduates too.
Over the next year, we will be offering 25 free online teacher training events. You don’t need to be an Oxford TEFL graduate to join these events – they are available for anyone who would like to learn more about teaching English as a foreign language.
What online teacher training events will I be able to attend for free?
These free online events will inspire you to do more, and be more. Each online event will be around one hour which includes time for questions at the end. This is a great opportinity to find out more from the presenter and connect with other passionate EFL teachers around the world!
Choose from subjects such as:
- Starting out in TEFL
- Using technology in your EFL lessons
- Integrating pronunciation into your classes
- Lesson planning ideas
- Professional development
- Coaching and leadership in ELT
We will be adding more events over the next year so if you are keen to see what other topics will be covered we recommend revisiting our events page for a full schedule of free and paid-for events and following us on Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn to stay up-to-date.
What do I need in order to attend the free online teacher training events?
Our aim is to provide free online events for TEFL teachers with varying levels of experience. So, you don’t need an official qualification in ELT, nor do you need many years of experience.
