“The world of education is often marred by questionable certification of academic courses. In order to differentiate between genuine, professional qualifications and those that are produced for commercial gain, it is essential that education companies provide accredited certification. Accreditation is the recognition by an external body that a course and/or training provider has met a certain set of standards and best practice. I am delighted to be associated with INTESOL as the company is an outstanding example of this best practice.”

Sample Certificate and Course Transcript

TEFL/TESOL dual certification option

INTESOL Japan is now proud to offer dual certification and verification direct from the awarding body. When you receive your electronic TESOL certificate from the Exams Office at ALAP, the Awarding Body, you will also receive a letter inviting you to apply for extras to add to your portfolio of certification. It will cost about 30 GBP, equivalent to 5,000 yen.

Dual Certification

The terms TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) are interchangeable, but you will find that some schools, even some governments, prefer one of these terms rather than the other. INTESOL Japan therefore now offers both certificates to students as an option.

Verification Letter Option

You can now also receive a verification letter to show a potential employer that your certificate is genuine. This is only available as a hard copy and only with a hard copy of your certificate and course transcript.

Who is Eligible?

These options are open to all INTESOL Japan students who complete a TESOL course. Past students who have completed an INTESOL TESOL course and have been awarded their certificate by ALAP can apply to the ALAP Exams Officer on for retrospective award of dual certification and verification letter.
