Peering into this particular TEFL course as well as the fully acclaimed accredited sponsor for TEFL Online Pro ACTEFLC is not a real TEFL course nor is the accreditation company real. I addressed my concerns to the Department of Education and the directors board to provide any more additional info to see if Paul Murphy was a certified English instructor along with this prestigious award winning school that claimed to win every year; by the teacher choice award, which is also a fake label btw, and no information came up so far. It is obvious of this was legit the school and the instructor would come up into the system. This is why it only makes sense that any info goes back to his/her websites. The only evidence of such credentials only comes by several sites which I am certain is owned and collaborated by this Paul Murphy who is suppose to be a reputable teacher but is coined as an operations manager according to the site? TEFL Online pro, TEFL reviews and the partnering accredited sponsor. Very misleading, and is suspicious. Also, when you review the website it reminds me of one big television commercial where it's about sales. If anyone ever comes across this forum with this initial complaint be warned. Don't take a bogus course where the certification is false I don't want to see anyone land into any trouble. The certification is a sham that once you get it and the employer verified it, it goes right to the fake website of ACTEFLC, mind you has some misspelled words and comes off a professional but wordings are not comprehensive. Reviewing the social media pages are the same students. I do not see any other students as of recently. They are even advertised on Facebook, YouTube, TEFL Online pro. Contact information is very limited to I believe to cover up any mishaps on their end. The other TEFL courses this company has deemed a fraud I reviewed and I have seen some positive reviews and many likes and followers and a more believable outlook. Also I can not get any more info from other websites for honest reviews only directs me back to the companies website. It is fair to state something is very off and sneaky about this. No one is hating or being envious. That teachers choice award is not real you can Google this is way different from the authentic one's given and earned. There is also no detail about the accredited company that TEFL Online pro claims to be affiliated with. Other TEFL programs I have seen have authentication from the educational system and TEFL online pro is not one of them I am certain of this. I definitely will be in constant communication with the Department of Education on this matter because it's not good to be unethical and lie to students who want to pursue learning. Reach out to the educational system of your country region, and government to get important info to get the best out of your education. The following are links to review fairly for anyone to discern what is clearly off.
Let me remind you that this website seems to down other schools and esteem TEFL ONLINE PRO as if it's about sales. Where is the recognition of other schools it's mainly just TEFL ONLINE PRO? A bit odd isn't it.As educators aren't we suppose to be supportive and give credit where it is due? Better ourselves? This website is in favoritism of TEFL online Pro. Not being a hater just trying to give everyone a point in perspective.
For years it has won over and over including this month again for September 2023? Look at the logo is is fake compared to real logos earned and given to institutions that were granted it. Why is it when I look for this logo and the organization that gave this award to TEFL online Pro it does not come up any where? Why can I not find any other websites that gives the props the school has won these awards? Why is it always on these websites only? If this company has been active for years why can any of us really get info from other websites for an open forum and collaborate real reviews of this exceptional school? Why are reviews only on the owners websites? Many people are all over the internet such as trustpilot as an example but only these. This was my main reason to go a step further and speak with people from the Department of Education.
Look at the spelling. Typos can happen yes, but if this is a state or country certified educational system the spelling and the professionalism of the website would be structured appropriately. The way the writing and info. provided to me seems over done.
This is another logo that is not real it's made up. I went looking for other companies that are sponsored by this or affiliated and nothing. Also the expensive prices associated to he accredited is an eye opener.
I can find many job openings looking for TEFL holders but I see again no info for Paul Murphy's company. Is it perhaps once the students finish the courses they are referred to this web page to find work? I find it very odd how the graduates that place reviews only on the TEFL Pro website and we do not really have a follow up if this makes sense. It's very off to me if anyone else notices this. Makes me wonder if job placement on supposed graduated are even assisting. It's unclear, but it's fair to say I make many valid points and can show you things that are not honest.
The website I just get car salesman vibes. It provides several courses you can take the hybrid being the most costly one with discounts. Originally it's around 500 but with a discount you can pay for about 200+. Just hearing hybrid course seems very sketchy one would know to just get a CELTA or basic TEFL.
Again, I wanted to post this as a fair complaint that this school and the owner behind it as well as possibly the owner of the other sites mentioned is unethical, dishonest, and does not care, only for the money. To falsify a document for certification is very disturbing and it can cost time made and jeopardize future teachers. I will be getting further info from the Department of Education so we can be safe to not fall victim to this place. Sadly, there are many more out there but I think it's critical to enlighten the wheat from the tares in the field to help those who truly have drive and passion to be teachers.
A shame be careful out there to all future educators teaching English.
This is so amusingly pathetic. Even your responses are like a bot. If you are who your company claims to be. The teachers award winner for the 5th time, can you provide everyone in this forum here other verifiable sources aside from your false website and the TEFL reviews as your safety blanket that is showing the board here you actually got this award? Come on Thomas we ALL know it is you. Your real name is not Paul Murphy. The Department of Education does not have you as a credible school along with the fake accreditation. God see's all and your judgment will come swiftly. The D.O.E. has all the info they need. Anyone who is reading this please spend your hard earned money on a real school. Do not waste your time. The same repeated answer he gives you is a shame. No type of answers to the questions many of us have been suspicious of.
