CertTESOL

Teaching English to non-native speakers can be a rewarding job in itself, with opportunities for clear career progression. It can also be a passport to travel, and a way of funding yourself around the world.


About the Course

Our Trinity-accredited CertTESOL is for people who want an internationally recognised qualification and practical teacher training course. We offer small groups with a maximum of 10 trainees and a positive, dynamic learning environment.




Key Units

Key units:


Unit 1: Teaching skills


This will include an outline of the main theories of language learning and how they apply to TESOL. You will learn to design effective lesson plans and learn how to present new language to non-native speakers, using a variety of techniques and teaching aids. You will have the opportunity to observe experienced teachers in action, and you will plan and deliver a series of lessons to ESOL students at two different levels.


Unit 2: Language Awareness


This will cover the basics of English grammar, and phonetics and phonology. You will also be given guidance on how to teach them.


Unit 3: Learner Profile


You will write a case study of an individual learner, focusing on their motivation for learning English, and their strengths and weaknesses. This will give you the experience of teaching English in one-to-one situations.


Unit 4: Materials Development


You will be asked to make and evaluate materials to use in the classroom. This will help you adapt existing published materials for your own context in your future teaching career.


Unit 5: Unknown Language


You will be taught a series of lessons in an unfamiliar language and will reflect on this experience. This will give you an insight into theories of teaching and language learning. As a result of this, you will be able to empathise better with your learners.






Entry Requirements

You must be a native, or non-native speaker of English, over 18 years old and with a standard of education that will allow you to enter higher education (usually A levels or equivalent). Non-native speakers of English must demonstrate competence in all English skills, equivalent to IELTS 7.5 (with IELTS 9 in Speaking) or Cambridge Proficiency.


Assessment

You will be continuously assessed on your teaching, language awareness tests, and written assignments.





Where does this Lead

With the CertTESOL and some experience of teaching you can go on to study for a Diploma in TESOL and a career in TESOL management. This is a very practical course that you can use for a career in teaching or simply as a means of funding your way around the world.
