The World TEFL Association (WTA) has continued its expansion with the sale of 16 franchise territories.

The company, which specialises in Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) training courses, has over 60 locations worldwide.

Andrea Freeman, President of WTA, said the organisation’s growth has come naturally: “The recession has generated a 62 per cent increase in enrollments for TEFL training around the world. Many people see a TEFL qualification as a relatively easy ticket to a guaranteed job and a new life overseas.

“There remains a truly massive demand for TEFL trained English teachers overseas. For example in countries such as China and Thailand, ESL language schools have already got students signed up for English courses, but they don’t have a teacher to tutor them. This leaves the door wide open for job opportunities in many countries around the world.”

The World TEFL Association claims to offer a turnkey franchise opportunity for prospective entrepreneurs. Freeman added: “We have over 10 years of experience in online marketing and we have tested hundreds of different strategies. In the past few years alone, we’ve spent a fortune on advertising that did not work. Through years of trial and error we have developed a proven marketing system that consistently brings in a 566 per cent return on our advertising spend. This business can be run online from any location with little or no overheads.”
