Hania, Crete




Hania is a beautiful old Cretan town with a population of around 60,000. The old town centre is clustered around the 14th century Venetian harbour where much of the city’s life and light is to be found. Whether you’ve come looking for the fantastic food, culture, friendly people, weather, stunning scenery, nightlife, peace – or just a chance to start out afresh somewhere new and face a different kind of challenge in life – you can find it all in here in Crete.


Training Center


The iTEFL partner school in Crete is situated in the centre of Hania, Crete’s second city (and former capital) on the North-West coast.

During the day we will normally commence classes at 9.30am. Afternoon classes and lesson preparation times normally run from 2.30 – 5.30. Evening demonstration lessons normally run from 6-9pm. On Friday the working day normally runs from 9.30 – 4.30pm. Weekends are usually free to explore the local area but you will have homework assignments.

You will usually have evenings and weekends free to explore all the local culture, nightlife and attractions that this great city has to offer. You will, however, have some homework assignments to complete.


The 4-Week TEFL Course


Our 4-week TEFL course is fully accredited and certified to meet international standards. The training involves up to 6 hours of observed teaching practice and 120 hours of classroom instruction. You will acquire all the practical skills you will need to teach English as a foreign language in any country around the world. 




Housing assistance is available either in shared housing, independent living, in local hotels/hostels or with local families. Once your place has been confirmed on the TEFL course we can assist you with booking your accommodation.


Getting Here and Visas


Airport pickup and transfer is included in the Advanced package. We recommend you arrive in the country at least 2 days prior to the course start date. Non EU students should arrive on a tourist or Schengen visa.


Prospects for Teachers

There are numerous job opportunities throughout Greece (with nearly 100 language schools here in Hania) the cost of living is very low and the pace of life relaxingly slow.  Weekends are free except for the course project. During the second weekend of the course we arrange an (optional) excursion down the Samaria Gorge.
