Hi Chelsma

You can take TeF classes and exams at your local Alliance Française (French Alliance) school.

I think for you (since you are in the UK) , you could go to the Alliance Française de Londres  (French Alliance of London) office.

The French Alliance of London offers French language classes and exams.



This is the French Alliance of London information regarding their General French exam:



1) Test d'Evaluation du Français (TEF) +TEFaQ (Québec)

The TEF, valid for one year, is recognised internationally by employers, universities or business schools in France such as INSEAD. The TEF is also required by the Canadian Citizenship and Immigration Department. There is no pass or fail mark. Rather, the exam establishes and provides for a certificate that reports your level. As such it is the most general, all purpose exam that can be taken by students from an elementary to advanced level. The exam does not require any specific preparation beyond learning French either in a group or with a private tutor to focus on your specific needs.
 
The exam involves 3 compulsory tests (Reading comprehension / Listening comprehension / Language structures and vocabulary) and 2 optional ones (writing / speaking). One to one tuition is available to help prepare for an exam. The 3 compulsory tests cost £105, the optional writing test £50 and the optional speaking test £85.
 
TEFaQ, which is an adaptation of the regular TEF, is required by the Ministry of Immigration Québec for a visa application. For this test, candidates are tested on their listening comprehension and speaking only. A certificate of results is issued and valid for one year. The speaking test requires the candidate to conduct a conversation at a level that is roughly equivalent to our level 2B. This is NOT an elementary level and candidates should not enrol without having attained an intermediate level of French. The test costs £135.
 
For further information on TEF see the CCIP website : CCIP




Hope the above info. helps, there is some additional info. (from the "Immigration Quebec" website) below too:

Learning French in your country of departure

You will find it useful to acquire a good knowledge of French in your country of departure.

To help you do so, several agreements with language schools exist around the world, some with local Alliance française schools.

The lessons given in these schools will also help you better understand Québec society thanks to document collections, a collection of documents especially designed for that purpose. Tuition fees are your responsibility.

However, since April 1, 2009, the Ministère de l'Immigration et des Communautés culturelles is reimbursing up to C$1500 to immigrants holding a Certificat de selection du Québec (CSQ – Quebec selection certificate) who took French language courses abroad after October 22, 2008.


Do you want to apply for immigration?

Québec considers knowledge of French an important selection criterion for immigrants.

Immigration candidates with insufficient knowledge of French to be selected may be referred to certain language schools.

After you make your decision to immigrate to Québec, enroll in a recognized French language school and increase your chances of being selected.

Proficiency in French

Effective December 6, 2011, all new skilled worker candidates (principal claimants and spouses) who wish to obtain points for their French proficiency must demonstrate this proficiency by enclosing with their immigration application the results of a French evaluation test issued by one of the two organizations recognized by the Ministère, specifically:

the Test d'évaluation du français adapté pour le Québec (TEFAQ) of the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Paris (CCIP);
the Test de connaissance du français pour le Québec (TCFQ) of the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP);
the Test d'évaluation du français (TEF) of the CCIP;
the Test de connaissance du français (TCF) of the CIEP;
the Diplôme d'études en langue française (DELF) of the CIEP;
the Diplôme approfondi de langue française (DALF) of the CIEP.
 

Candidates who choose to present a TEF or TCF must enclose the results of the oral comprehension test and the oral expression test. Note that written proficiency is not evaluated when applying for a Québec Selection Certificate.

The current list of TEF, TEFAQ, TCF, TCFQ, DELF and DALF accredited centres can be consulted on the respective websites of the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Paris and the Centre international d'études pédagogiques.

Please consult the table (in French - PDF, 182 Kb) for a detailed description of these French tests.



IMPORTANT: To prove their language proficiency, worker candidates must provide the results of a standardized test, even if French or English is their mother tongue.
