1. Course Requirements

In order for tutees to successfully complete an i-to-i course, all candidates must demonstrate the following requirements:

All tutees should be aware that subscription to any i-to-i course does not automatically lead to successful completion of the course. Should a tutee fail to reach the required standards, we reserve the right to fail that tutee.

2. English Language Level of the Tutee

Before the Course

All non-native English-speaking tutees should have at least the Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) or equivalent, in order to enrol onto an i-to-i course. If unsure of the required native English level, tutees are advised to call their nearest i-to-i office and to discuss requirements with a member of staff.

During the Course

Should at any point during the course a tutor feel that a tutee’s English language ability is insufficient, their case will immediately be forwarded to the Director of Studies. If the Director of Studies believes the tutee unfit to competently teach EFL, we reserve the right to fail the tutee.

3. Our Commitment

i-to-i is committed to providing you with the very best level of service and satisfaction with your training. This is our commitment and promise to you when you sign up for an i-to-i course.

i-to-i promises to:

If you believe that we have broken one of our promises please contact us via email (helpdesk@tefl-training.com) and we will investigate your claims fully and fairly.If your claim is upheld you will be issued with a full refund within 14 working days.

4. Failure to Complete Within 90 (Ninety) Days

All tutees are given 90 days in which to complete the Online TEFL Course, the Grammar Awareness Course and Specialist Certificates and are strongly encouraged to complete their training within 90 days.

Your study time begins from the time of purchase of your course. In cases where there is a significant time period between the student's submissions of their assignments, we may, at the discretion of the Director of Studies, ask the student to submit earlier work for reappraisal.

If a tutee fails to complete the course within 90 days, they may extend their study-time by 30 days or 90 days for an administration fee. Details of administration fees can be found here: https://store.onlinetefl.com/course-extension-1.html

Tutees may extend their course more than once and at any point during their course or after the course has expired.

i-to-i reserve the right to not permit customers in some cases to extend their course further than 12 months of the original purchase date.

5. Failure of Course

Online TEFL Courses

Tutees are given unlimited attempts to complete each auto-marked assessment (a 'quiz') in the Online TEFL Course. Tutees are given three attempts to complete each tutor-marked assessment (a 'checkpoint' or 'assignment') in the Online TEFL Course. If on the third attempt, the tutee has failed to take the tutor’s suggestions, comments and advice on board and has still not achieved the level deemed acceptable by the tutor, then the tutee’s final submission will be forwarded on to the Director of Studies. At this point the Director of Studies reserves the right to fail the tutee.

No refunds are possible in cases whereby the tutee has been deemed to have failed the course. Where a tutee has failed the course it is at i-to-i’s discretion whether to allow the tutee to repurchase.

Classroom TEFL Courses

Attendance at the course does not guarantee that the tutee will pass the course. However, failure to be present for the full duration of the course will result in failure of the course.

If, in the professional opinion of the tutor, the tutee does not reach the required level in the following areas the tutee may fail the course:

If the tutee fails the course they are entitled to ask for and be given reasons for this failure. All failed tutees will receive a written letter informing them of the reasons why they have not passed within 14 days of the end of the course date.

No refunds are possible in cases whereby the tutee has failed the course, and we reserve the right to not accept failed tutees on subsequent courses where this has been result of failing to abide by the code of conduct outlined below.

If the tutee requires alternative postal arrangements, this will solely be at the cost of the tutee, and is subject to availability.

1. Confirming that you are eligible to enter into these additional terms with i-to-i UK Ltd

1.1. You confirm that:

2. The service i-to-i provides to you

2.1. i-to-i can, at your request, arrange for you to take a teaching English as a foreign language ('TEFL') training course before you travel to the destination country unless you already have relevant qualifications and do not require this course. This will be subject to our TEFL terms and conditions as set out on our website. If you plan to take a TEFL course with i-to-i we recommend that you read and familiarise yourself with these terms and conditions before agreeing.

2.2. i-to-i UK will introduce you to our Overseas Partner and pass on to them your application for an English teaching post in the destination country, and the relevant documentation and paperwork.

2.3. i-to-i UK will ensure that the Overseas Partner considers your application and reports back in a reasonable time stating whether or not it has decided to accept the application. Please note that, whilst i-to-i has worked hard to choose Overseas Partners whom we believe can find work for the majority of our customers, it is the decision of the Overseas Partner, not i-to-i as to whether your application is accepted, and i-to-i cannot influence or change the requirements of the English teaching job market in the destination country, nor can it override the decision of the Overseas Partner. The Overseas Partner’s decision is final, and i-to-i cannot challenge or insist on being given reasons for any rejection of an application on your behalf.

2.4. Provided that your application meets i-to-i’s requirements as notified to you and you have submitted all required documentation to us within the specified number of days from the time of booking, i-to-i will pass your details on to our Overseas Partner. If your initial application is rejected, you can choose whether to ask i-to-i to submit your application to a different Overseas Partner in a different country. If your application is accepted, our Overseas Partner will provide you with the details of your role before your arrival in country. Some schools or institutes will also provide accommodation; others will require you to make your own accommodation arrangements.

2.5. Once you have entered into a Teaching Contract the Overseas Partner will provide you with relevant pre-departure preparation, including details of airport pick-up (where provided), and details of your accommodation, where this is to be provided by your school or institute under the Teaching Contract.

2.6. We shall procure that the Overseas Partner, acting on behalf of i-to-i will provide airport pick-up where possible, provided that you have forwarded your flight details to the Overseas Partner at least 7 days before departure.

2.7. We shall procure that the Overseas Partner, acting on behalf of i-to-i , will provide a reasonable amount of on-going support whilst you are in country if you experience problems with your accommodation or job. You accept that the Overseas Partner will have complete discretion as to how best to help you resolve any problems and how much time it can spend working with you on the problem, and i-to-i cannot override or interfere with the decisions made by the Overseas Partner in relation to the problems you are experiencing, nor is it responsible for those decisions. The Overseas Partner cannot provide support in relation to employment or accommodation problems unless you notify the Overseas Partner as soon as the problems arise (and in any event before leaving the job or accommodation) and you have made reasonable attempts to resolve the problems directly with your employer.

2.8. Documents must be scanned and emailed to tefljobteam@i-to-i.com within the specified number of days from the time of booking. If documents have not been sent and received by the TEFL Job Team, the placement will be automatically cancelled. You can reinstate your placement by contacting tefljobteam@i-to-i.com. You must reinstate your placement within six months of booking. If you do not re-instate your placement within six months from the date of your booking, an administration fee will apply.

3. Relationship with the Overseas Partner

3.1. In this i-to-i Contract, i-to-i sub-contracts those aspects of its service that are carried out in the destination country to an Overseas Partner on the basis set out in Clause 2 above.

3.2. Our Overseas Partner may, in turn, be acting as the agent for various English language institutes and schools in the destination country or it may itself be an institute or school. If the Overseas Partner accepts your application, it will introduce you to an institute or school, (or, where the Overseas Partner is itself a school, will offer you employment in that school).

4. The Teaching Contract

Before you start work at your school or institute, you will be required to enter into a Teaching Contract direct with an institute or school. Your Teaching Contract is not with i-to-i, and we cannot negotiate or challenge any terms in it on your behalf. You are encouraged to take independent advice from an advisor with expertise in the law of the destination country about any concerns you may have about the terms in the Teaching Contract. This will be at your own cost. Your Teaching Contract will be in a language that you understand.

If you are not prepared to accept any and all stipulations within the Teaching Contract, and subsequently end your teaching role, you alone are responsible for this decision. We shall procure that our Overseas Partner will send you the Teaching Contract before your departure.

5. Amendments

5.1. Provided that your application meets the requirements as notified to you and you have submitted all required documentation to us, i-to-i will offer you the option to amend to another country if you are unsuccessful in your application for your initial Teaching Contract.

5.2. If you wish to make a change to your start month or destination, i-to-i will do its best to ensure that this is possible. Upon application you are required to specify a starting month for the arrival in country.

5.3. You may cancel your TEFL Job abroad application at any time. Please note that you will be bound by the terms in the Teaching Contract you sign on acceptance of your position.

6. Some guidance for dealing with problems in-country

6.1. i-to-i is not a party to the Teaching Contract. It will not be liable for the school or institute's compliance with its terms or for any aspect of those terms that you might consider unreasonable. You should read through your Teaching Contract carefully and take local legal advice if you wish to do so. You should also note the following expectations that we believe your school will have of you, whether or not these are mentioned in the Teaching Contract, in order to reduce the likelihood of having problems in the course of your employment:

6.2. You will be expected to take care of and be responsible for any materials provided for your use by your school. Your school is likely to hold you financially responsible for any damage or loss caused to such materials. Our Overseas Partner will not be able to help you avoid this responsibility, which may be imposed in the form of loss of wages.

6.3. Your accommodation owner is likely to hold you financially responsible for any damage to your accommodation caused by you or somebody who is in your accommodation with your permission. Our Overseas Partner will not be able to help you avoid this responsibility.

6.4. You will be expected to dress and behave appropriately and professionally for interviews and work in accordance with cultural norms in the destination country which may be very different from those in your home country. Our Overseas Partner will not be able to help you if you lose your job because you refuse to comply with your school's expectations in relation to style of dress or hair or personal adornment.

7. Travel - Related Matters

7.1. It is your responsibility to book and pay for your flights, and to arrive in good time for your flight. We advise you refrain from booking your flights until you have signed your Teaching Contract.

7.2. Travel Insurance: It is your responsibility to obtain appropriate travel and medical insurance. We recommend strongly that you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers you also for working overseas.

7.3. Visas: Whilst we can assist in giving you general advice about visa for your travels, you are responsible for obtaining the correct entry and work visas for your destination. You are also responsible for the cost of obtaining any visas.

7.4. Travel Documentation: It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid passport that will remain valid for the duration of your stay in country.

7.5. Medical Advice: It is your responsibility to ensure that you have taken appropriate medical advice from your doctor in respect of living and working in the destination country, and that you have received all the appropriate inoculations and injections. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you take with you any appropriate and/or necessary medication or medical equipment for both treatment and prevention of illnesses during your time overseas.

7.6. Security and Government Advice: It is your responsibility to clarify information in relation to the political and security situation and any relevant medical advice in respect of the destination country, and to take any relevant steps that you feel are appropriate.

8. Accuracy of Marketing Materials

We believe that all statements made in our brochure, website and other marketing materials are factual and correct at the time they are made. Every reasonable effort has been made to describe the placement and to provide the amenities described. We cannot be held responsible for any changes that become known or happen after the brochure was produced (up-to-date information can be found on the website). Nor can we accept liability for happenings outside our reasonable control. We undertake to advise you of any material changes known to us prior to your departure providing there is sufficient time to do so and we can contact you.

9. The Law and your Protection

9.1. When agreeing to these terms and conditions, both parties recognise that you are not an employee of i-to-i , nor of any other company in i-to-i's group.

9.3. Neither we nor our agents accept liability for any aspect of your Teaching Contract.

9.4. We hereby exclude any liability we might otherwise have if part of this contract is improperly performed due to your error or omissions in the information and personal details which you have provided to us.

Neither we nor our Overseas Partner accept liability, and we will not pay you any compensation, in the event that your trip is cancelled, delayed, curtailed or in any way changed or where the performance or prompt performance of this contract is prevented as a result of circumstances that we, our representatives, our Overseas Partner, or their representatives could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid.

Save as otherwise provided for in this agreement, we shall have no liability in respect of the cancellation or unavailability of your Teaching Contract.

9.10. Except in the case of fraud or death or personal injury resulting from any act or omission by i-to-i or any of its employees, the maximum liability of i-to-i or any company within the i-to-i group to you under these additional terms shall be capped at £1000.
