The School

The Madrid Trinity College CertTESOL centre boasts of a team of teachers with more than a combined total of 60 years’ experience in the training of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other languages).

The Trinity CertTESOL taught in our Madrid centre is a validated Trinity College London CertTESOL course, accredited and externally moderated by Trinity College London. The Trinity College CertTESOL is accepted and recognised by the British Council and graduates with the Trinity CertTESOL certificate can apply for British Council teaching around the world. This is a certificate preferred by international educational organisations hiring teachers to teach in language schools all the way to universities.

The Madrid TEFL training program is a TEFL course that meets QCF Level 5 high-quality standards that place us as one of the world's most reputable TEFL teacher preparation centres. In addition to receiving high-quality TEFL training, you can also choose to specialize in business English, teaching English to young people or general English.

Worldwide, Lifetime Job Placement

A very important highlight that sets us apart from other TEFL centres is our proactive, lifetime and worldwide job placement program, which helps our graduates get jobs as TEFL teachers after graduation and all throughout their TEFL and TESOL careers. An unbeatable, recent addition to our job placement service is the guaranteed 1-year teaching job in a state/public or chartered Madrid bilingual school. With your Trinity College CertTESOL certificate you can work in Madrid schools with good pay and work conditions for a total of 1 year, renewable after the first-year contract.

The Madrid course includes a comprehensive service package: The Trinity College CertTESOL course, the TESOL and TEFL certificates, job placement service, welcome and after course parties, travel assistance, accommodation, Spanish classes in an accredited Cervantes Spanish school, job workshops, CV and interview preparation and quick access to English teaching jobs around the world.

In addition to preparing you to be a good English teacher, you can also get your first English teaching job in the blink of an eye. Our partner language schools in Madrid and around the world are aware of the quality of the Trinity College CertTESOL training and as such they await our graduating classes to interview for their teaching availabilities.

Accommodation

If you want to take advantage of our recommended four-week housing, you need to be fully paid on the TEFL course. The optional housing offered through the TEFL Course + 4 week optional housing package is a very good offer as most housing agencies in Madrid will charge first and last month security deposits, so many students in the past were already out of pocket for anywhere between 1300-1500 euro even before they moved in.

The Madrid training centre mainly offers flat shares from ex-students and Spanish people attending the free English classes given during the course. All flat shares on offer are in up market and safe areas, are easy commutes to the school and are close to stores, supermarkets, restaurants, banks, metro and bus stops.

Your housing fee of 625 euro is an all-inclusive fee.

Your four-week paid housing starts on the day you move in, so it is recommended that you book flights to arrive in Madrid at the latest the weekend before the course starts so in that way you have housing coverage for the full duration of the four-week TEFL course. Check out time is normally on the Saturday or Sunday after the last Friday of the course.

You don’t have to use our accommodation. We can help you find alternative housing arrangements like hostels, guest houses, homestay families or even an AirBnB. We will advise you on what areas are the best value for money, safe and has easy access to transportation, shops, restaurants.
