The beautiful island of Santorini is perhaps the most quintessential of all the Greek islands. With stunning scenery all around you, Santorini really is an ideal place to take your TEFL course.
Upon completion of our Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language course, graduates will earn a must-have, entry-level teaching qualification from the world’s largest TEFL certificate provider.
Like much of Greece, Santorini is steeped in history, with numerous places of archaeological interest. These include the Venetian fortress at Pirgos and the ruins of Ancient Thira, Akrotiri. The unique Santorinian-style creates unique accommodation and as well as the aesthetic and historical plus points you will find stunning beaches with a whole host of beach sports and activities available. You may also be lucky enough to be in town for the picturesque religious festival which takes place at the monastery of the Prophet Elijah, found on the highest peak of Santorini.
The Santorini Caldera view includes 300-foot cliffs with many of the islands villages having enviable views of the expansive Mediterranean Sea. The view came at a heavy cost however, as the cliffs are in fact the walls of a huge volcanic crater caused by a colossal eruption in 3,000 B.C.
In addition to certifying trainees as TEFL teachers, we also offer worldwide lifetime job support so we can help course graduates find teaching work in Greece or anywhere else there is demand for qualified EFL teachers.
Apply now, and you could soon be living and teaching right in the heart of stunning Santorini.

Santorini is a major tourist destination so you’ll have a wide variety of accommodation options while attending our TEFL training center. Choose from hotels, hostels and apartments in the town center or near the beach. Your individual preference and budget, the amount of people travelling with you and the time of year will help determine which option is best for you.
A hotel we recommend is in the Karterados area, which has a host of taverns and small shops within its traditional square. Karterados can be found between Fira and Messaria, where the training center is located. Each of these areas can be reached within a ten-minute walk, though there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. Rates for the hotel start at 20 euro per night.
We also have accommodation options in Messaria itself and in Kamari—a beach resort offering accommodation of various types at reasonable prices that start at around 25 euro per night (includes breakfast).
You can also find inexpensive accommodation near the beach in Perissa. For 25 nights, the price for a single room is 287 euro.

Monday to Thursday:
There are two input sessions each morning covering grammar, phonology, teaching skills and classroom management.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
Teaching practice takes place in the afternoon, generally between five and eight o’clock.
Each trainee usually teaches once per day to make up the total of ten hours during the course. Trainers provide extensive help with planning each lesson and give written feedback which forms the basis of the feedback discussion after each lesson.
Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:
Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.
Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
