Promise Opens Doors is a non-profit organization established by the founders of PromiseK14, an online education company providing high-quality English language instruction to over 13,000 students since 2004. We see Promise Opens Doors TEFL Certificate Programs as an extension of the mission to bring the English language to every student around the world.

The programs are structured as pass (at 80% proficiency) or no pass, completed entirely online, and includes a required number of observation hours and teaching hours. Unique to Promise Opens Doors TEFL Certificate Programs, the observation and practice teaching hours are fulfilled online in our established classrooms (*for North American participants only).  

Note that Promise Opens Doors TEFL Certificate Programs are NOT a teaching certification. Those seeking teaching certification should contact their respective state departments of education.

Personal data (i.e., email, first name, last name, phone number) will be collected by a trusted 3rd party vendor solely for those North American participants who are completing the course with practicum. Promise Opens Doors never retains personal data for the safety of its customers. 


Payment processing services enable Promise Opens Doors to process payments by credit card or PayPal. To ensure greater security, Promise Opens Doors shares only the information necessary to execute the transaction with the financial intermediaries handling the transaction. Some of these services may also enable the sending of timed messages to the User, such as email notifications concerning the payment.
