Before enrolling on an initial TEFL/TESOL course, it is very important to be sure that the qualification will be recognised by employers.  If the course has no external supervision or validation, or if it has no supervised and assessed teaching practice (sometimes the case with online/ distance courses), or if the course is for less than 100 - 120 hours in length, it may not be recognised by employers who are subject to external accreditation or validation.
