E. Why has TEFL Online Pro published this rebuttal?
First and foremost, we have issued this rebuttal to protect you, the Customer.
Not everyone is aware that the TEFL marketplace is highly competitive and that some TEFL programs do not follow better business practices.
ESLinsider, ITTT International TEFL and TESOL Training, and The TEFL Academy are all unaccredited TEFL programs, and MyTEFL’s accreditation has been proven to be extremely questionable.
The accreditation website of ITT International TEFL and TESOL Ltd. is so obviously fake; taking a stock image from the internet, adding a fake name, and claiming that she (‘Sally King’) is their ‘Compliance Officer’.
We don’t want our potential Customers to be swayed by false information into taking a TEFL course from a TEFL provider that is not fully accredited or internationally recognized.
We regularly receive complaints from people who have been swayed by the misinformation spread by these five programs. These people routinely complain that they were duped into taking a TEFL course – a TEFL course from ESLinsider, ITT International TEFL and TESOL Ltd., ITTT International TEFL and TESOL Training, MyTEFL, or The TEFL Academy – that has turned out not what it claimed to be.
TEFL Online Pro is a transparent, award-winning, fully accredited, reputable program with an excellent reputation.
Our customer feedback is overwhelmingly positive, and we work incredibly hard to maintain our high standards of tuition and post-course services.
We have an extensive worldwide network of education partners. These partners know our brand and routinely employ our teachers.
With a TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate, you are guaranteed a teaching English job online and in any country overseas where there is a teaching English job market.
It is, therefore, imperative that we defend ourselves against false and misleading accusations.
We also chose to issue this rebuttal in support of all the TEFL Online Pro students and graduates that have written or recorded a review of their TEFL Online Pro course and post-course experience.
Content published online by ESLinsider, ITT International TEFL and TESOL Ltd., ITTT International TEFL and TESOL Training, MyTEFL, and The TEFL Academy, about TEFL accreditation bodies, TEFL program competitors, and TEFL review websites is not a reliable source of information.
Content published online by an affiliate link marketer about any TEFL accreditation body, TEFL program competitor, and TEFL review website – regardless of whether the content is positive or negative – is not a reliable source of information.
Affiliate link marketers will write anything to try and convince you to buy a TEFL course when they stand to earn a 20% student referral sales commission – a 20% commission added to the regular price of the TEFL course.
TEFL Online Pro does not run an affiliate’s marketing program.
We point-blank refuse to be listed on any websites that operate on an affiliate’s marketing sales business model; GoAbroad and GoOverseas being two examples.
As a result, it appears that we are considered “fair game” by some of the unscrupulous affiliate link marketers that earnestly try to trash our excellent reputation in order to drive traffic to their website(s) where they earn commission sales from the TEFL programs they “highly recommend.”
Reputable TEFL/TESOL programs don’t operate an affiliate link marketers program
