TEFL Application Procedure

Successful application of candidates is based on the completion of the application form, pre-interview task and an interview, either in person (in Quito) or by telephone. Acceptance into the course is not automatic and a selection process has been put in place in order to ensure candidates' suitability so that they will be successful in the course. Acceptance is at the discretion of CEC-EPN. Click here for the list of course requirements.
