Due to changing requirements, TESOL is the more sought after certification course that is required for teaching English abroad. Although TEFL courses are still offered around the world, many foreign countries are requiring prospective students to have done the TESOL course as a standard requirement.
Our course will further prepare you, if you so wish, to do the Certificate in TESOL (250 hours).
The TESOL course is designed to introduce teachers to lesson plans, efficient teaching methods and classroom management.
The Diploma in TESOL (450 hours) qualification is suitable for experienced teachers of ESOL hoping to work in an area or organisation that requires a diploma-level qualification, eg more senior teaching positions, academic management, teacher training or work within the higher education sector. The DipTESOL is ideal for those who want to further their skills and knowledge both for their own personal development and so that they can support and guide less experienced colleagues.
Due to a huge and ongoing demand for TEFL/TESOL teachers many people of all ages are doing these courses to enable them to teach internationally.
Our comprehensive 150-hour theoretical and practical skills development course in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) takes place once a month.
