Think of accreditation as quality control with ongoing evaluation and constant improvement that is being continually reviewed by external bodies. The proper accreditation plays a vital role for recruiters looking to ensure that the training you received meets satisfactory levels of quality that are recognized worldwide. Receiving the proper professional training will provide you the skills and guidance you will need to follow you dreams of working abroad as a teacher.
Entrust TEFL is internationally accredited by World TEFL Accrediting Commission holding the accreditation number of #567755TH24. World TEFL Accrediting Commission is one of the best independent TEFL / TESOL accrediting bodies available today. Based in New York, United States of America WTEFLAC has grown to one of the most respected accrediting organizations through their globally accepted high standards which ensures professional accreditation of TEFL / TEFL providers worldwide. The International Accreditation provided by WTEFLAC provides another layer of assurance that your Entrust TEFL certificate will be accepted by schools and recruiters worldwide.
As strange as it sounds, most TEFL / TESOL companies are not Internationally accredited and about half hold a lesser accreditation for an online course ($49/year) as it is cheaper with little to no questions asked. The other half simply accredit themselves by creating their own accreditation websites or seek accreditation from other TEFL providers rather than just improve their training programs. Accreditation is good as it allows for constant improvement and the proper accreditation plays a vital role for recruiters looking to ensure that the training you received meets satisfactory levels of quality that are recognized worldwide.
Entrust TEFL Course Registration
Think of a company registration as the sturdy foundation of any business. Holding a company registration should be the most basic element for an ongoing business so rest assured, Entrust TEFL is a fully registered and bonded company with two permanent locations in Thailand holding the registration number of #0105548105158. Being a legally registered business, this does not only mean that we pay taxes and subject to its laws, but it also means that as a consumer you have the peace of mind to know that we are fully bonded, insured and all our employees are working legally.
Entrust TEFL was registered in 2002 under the American / Thailand treaty and has grown to become the best TEFL provider and secondary education companies in Thailand today.
As strange as that sounds, most TEFL / TESOL providers in Thailand are not legally registered businesses. Most operate purely as a website and rent conference rooms at a hotel or resort to provide the training. If they are not a legally registered business, there is zero legitimacy and zero consumer protection.
Entrust TEFL Educational Licensing
I think you would agree, if you are providing training of any kind that results in a certification you should be licensed to do so otherwise your training and completion certificate will hold no real value. Being licensed ensures that the training curriculum being used has been reviewed and approved by relevant educational body, the training location has been inspected for health, safety, and provides a spacious and professional environment to conduct the training. Just like in any country worldwide the school, college or university is licenced, regulated and monitored by educational and governmental bodies to insure that professional standards are being met and maintained, a TEFL / TESOL training school is no different.
A language school license is the first step to toward becoming a licensed TEFL / TESOL school in Thailand. The language school license takes about three years to complete as it involves engineers ensuring that your training facility and student areas are fully up to code with health and safety. During this time the Thai Ministry of Education is also meeting with your staff, reviewing your course outlines, course curriculums, daily lesson plans, grading, course books, course activities, tests, exams, quizzes or anything you would possibly hand to a student at your language school for each level for their approval.
Once you have successfully been granted a license by the Thai Ministry of Education to be a language school to teach Thai nationals English or other skills you can start the process to become a licensed school to teach non-Thai nationals, which is straight forward and less lengthy of a process as your training facility itself has already been approved. Becoming licensed to conduct TEFL / TESOL training follows the same process of having the Thai Ministry of Education meet with your trainers, go over their qualifications, ensure that the TEFL students have access to photo copy machines, teaching equipment, rest areas, and other improvements needed for foreign students. During that process the Teachers council of Thailand and Ministry of Education review your TEFL training outline, course curriculum, daily lesson plans, grading, course books, test, exams, quizzes, or anything that could possibly be seem by your TEFL students. They also must review how you will be teaching Thai culture and how you will be conducting real world training and observation at local schools. Once they have approved your TEFL course and all its content you have successfully been granted a license to conduct TEFL / TESOL teacher training. I truly hope that more TEFL / TESOL schools seek legitimate licencing to conduct the training in the near future, but at this time only two companies hold such licencing in Thailand.
Entrust TEFL is one of the few TEFL training providers that is licensed by the Thai Ministry of Education and monitored by the Teachers Council of Thailand to train and certify TEFL / TESOL teachers holding the licence number of #CM 01-005-2529. Entrust TEFL being both a legally registered company and fully licensed to conduct teacher training insures that the Entrust TEFL Certificate given upon completion of the course fully satisfies the legal requirements of a 140-hour TEFL course and recognized by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a legitimate TEFL / TESOL training program worldwide.
Unbelievably, most TEFL / TESOL providers in Thailand do not hold a license to conduct TEFL / TESOL training and merely operate as unregistered training centers with no licensing or supervision from the educational sector. Most TEFL companies claim to be licensed, endorsed, certified, approved, or best buddies of the Ministry of Education and to conduct TEFL training, however a language school license only allows them to teach Thai nationals, Not foreigners or Westerners of which the average TEFL / TESOL class is comprised. Some TEFL companies even show a copy of a language school license on their website which is not in their name. I don’t know about you, but if you tell me you have a license for something shouldn’t that license be in your name?

Entrust TEFL has being performing volunteering activities since its inception so the creation of Future Advance Foundation was inevitable as we wanted to give back to our local community. As with all aspects of our business Future Advance Foundation is a fully registered, fully licensed foundation with several ongoing volunteering projects nationwide, which involve many of the photos below.
A portion of each TEFL enrollment is donated to Future Advance Foundation which allows the TEFL participant to contribute directly in each volunteering activity during their enrollment month. The combined contribution by enrolling in our TEFL program and donating their time during our three days of observed teaching practice at a school allows each TEFL participant to be awarded an authentic volunteering certificate signed and stamped by the school district, which always looks good on a CV / resume.
