TEFL courses in Manc

1016 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  dgnr8
Howdy peeps.

I'm looking at doing a TEFL course in Manc, but with a long term view of buggering off to Thailand.

Looking around on the grand t'interwebs, I cannae find shite all info. Everything seems to be shitty weekend or online courses. I found something at City College, but their website is bobbins and doesn't actually tell you sod all about what they offer. I've requested some proper documentation to be posted to me, but that may be a while until I get anything back from them.

So my lovely people, could anybody give me any advice on good places to gain such a qualification, or if anybody here has undertaken such a course, just give me some general info regards to where and what I should be looking for?

Leeds would be an option too. But same again, I can't see anything other than questionable looking weekend schemes.

Thank you please.
