ALAP is supported by an esteemed Academic Panel who are all experts in the field of English Language Teaching. The ALAP panel oversee matters related to academic quality, ensuring that the value of an ALAP Certificate is upheld.

" The world of education is often marred by questionable certification of academic courses. In order to differentiate between genuine, professional qualifications and those that are produced for commercial gain, it is essential that education companies provide accredited certification. Accreditation is the recognition by an external body that a course and/or training provider has met a certain set of standards and best practice. I am delighted to be associated with INTESOL as the company is an outstanding example of this best practice. "

What is a TEFL/TESOL Course?

Both TEFL and TESOL are acronyms for certification of teaching English to non-native speakers.

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language and TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. TESOL is the one mostly used in Turkey.


INTESOL Worldwide was founded in the UK in 1993 by Lynda Hazelwood in the belief that anyone possessing the passion to teach, the skills to express themselves clearly, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of others should be given the opportunity and encouragement to gain a professional certification in TEFL/TESOL. INTESOL is the brand name.

Are you eligible for the course?

As an English teacher candidate, you - the trainee - should have at least B2 level English in all language skills and you need to be fluent in speaking. There will be a general English placement test before you start the course. However, you will also have an interview on the phone, and if required, you could be asked to have a face-to-face video conversation.

Where and how can I teach English in Turkey (and in other countries) ?

You can apply private educational institutions such as language schools, private (which is called - independent - in the UK) schools etc. after you successfully complete your online TESOL course and teaching practice. However, you could follow up the announcements for some state schools as well- you can work on contract basis.
