TEFL Course Application Process

What are the application criteria for our TEFL course in Madrid?

To apply for the course you must meet the following criteria:

  • 21 years old*
  • Native or bilingual English speaker
  • Degree or equivalent work experience (you will be required to demonstrate this)*

*some exceptions made in special cases.

  • Step 1

    Email Helen (helen@lets.education) and she will send you a booklet and all the information you will need to make an informed decision. Please let her know if you are European or non-European as we have two different programs – one that includes a student visa, as well as a TEFL, and one without. Alternatively, you can fill out an inquiry form. This is the perfect time to bombard us with questions, so don’t be shy!

  • Step 2

    Once you know more about us, Helen will send you an application form to fill out so we know more about you and can give you best possible advice about your TEFL in Madrid, Spain. There is no commitment involved when submitting this.

  • Step 3

    When you have completed your application form, Helen will go over it and then email you to arrange a time for a telephone or Skype interview. This is an excellent opportunity for us to get a better understanding of your motivation for taking the course and for you to ask us any questions you might have about it or about all the intricacies of moving to Madrid.

  • Step 4

    Once the interview stage is complete we will let you know if you have been accepted. You can choose which course you would like to enroll in, at which point we will send you your welcome letter and welcome pack. This has lots of information about the course—what you will need to bring, when you will need to be here, etc.

  • Step 5

    At the end of the application process, we will also give you all the information you will need for your visa application for those that need it. You will receive an invoice which contains details of how you can pay.

  • Step 6

    We require you to pay a deposit of 300€ as soon as the application process is complete to secure your place (800€ for those on the Spanish and Teaching Study Abroad Program), and the outstanding balance one month prior to the course starting. Please inform us immediately if you have any problems with payments as securing your place is dependent on receiving your deposit and your full payment on time.
