TESOL certification courses are continuing education programs that generally last anywhere between two and eight weeks, so there isn’t any government funding available in Canada, US, or UK.
The good news is that it is possible to pay off your TESOL course after just one month of teaching abroad. The tuition fee for Ontesol’s 100-hour course is only CAN$285 as of September, 2011. EPIK, which is a national English program run by South Korea’s Ministry of Education, offers $300 extra per month to those who have a 100-hour TESOL certificate or higher TESOL certification!
If you have taken a course with Ontesol or you are currently enrolled in one of our internationally recognized TESOL courses, we are one of the few TESOL/TEFL institutes in the world that has a contract with EPIK for helping qualified ESL teachers with the lengthy application process.
